    I just picked up a very well known company's misspelled domain name. The misspelling gets over 80k searches per month and it has extremely low competing pages. The terms and conditions of the affiliate offer state "You may not use xxxxxxxxx or any variation or misspellings thereof in your URL." I can easily throw up a linkwheel and get to number one on G for the misspelling but because of the terms and conditions, I will probably not get paid. I think eventually hiding the referrer will run out as well. Is there any way of hiding the natural traffic I get from the SE's?

    Yeah, and their lawyers will call something up.
    If this company isn't based in the United MAFIAA of America, then go ahead.

    Make sure you're not in America before though.

    I've been in the same situation and blanking the referrer is the way to go, no doubt

    I would spoof the referer through a whitehat page.

    Also, see if you can find the IP range under that company's control. If you can, then make sure you block it and redirect it somewhere else. (Or make it look like a crappy parked page.) In that case even if they stumble upon it checking mispellings, they're likely to not see your affiliate program.

    your gonna lose even if you're not in america. most registars are in america or fear american law. I mean if your with godaddy or enom or any of the big registrars they will turn the domain over if a trademark suit is filed. You can fight it but its money out of your pocket. I'd sell it to someone else for xxx and praise the traffic it gets you can get more for that..there's always someone who'll be willing to buy it not knowing that they're getting themselves into a legal hotbed.
