    So here it is,

    I have an affiliate link that I am trying to give to people on Badoo. However, to make it look as not spammy as possible I have shortened it via TinyUrl. Than as an added measure, I have shortened that tinyurl into a bitly url.

    When I message someone and give them the link, it originally shows up fine. But when i reload the message, the bitly part has fallen off, meaning that i have the (forward slash) + a bunch of meaningless numbers.

    Is there a way to cloak my affiliate link without Badoo or any other service flagging it as spam?

    I'm trying not to buy a domain and set up a redirect. I have been reading that that is the preferred method and seems to work.



    Much help is appreciated. Again, I'm new, have a heart...

    the preferred method is to cloak your link using a script installed on your own domain

    your own domain is the way to go. even at a slightest spam suspicion, badoo will block you like there is no tomorrow

    Just as a guess, maybe you could try some less popular link shortning sites and see if they are also detected as spam?

    If use php, it like:
    <?
    header("Location: your_affiliate_link");
    ?>

    and you can use iframe.
    <iframe style="width: 100%; background-color: #FFF; height: 7000px;" src="your_affiliate_link"></iframe>

    Buy a domain thats look similar to the domain name of the offer you are promoting and then redirect it with your affiliate link to the original landing page.
    Example: you are promoting a product with the domain goodebook.com, you purchase the domain goodebooks.com and redirect it with your aff link to goodebook.com

    Most people wont notice that there i an "s" in your domain and wont suspect a thing.

    Another quick way ( especially if you don't have a server) is to google for "link shortner" and finding the least popular result from them ( search in page 5-10+). They will not be spammed yet ;-)

    Frankly speaking, i don't think so. Google is really clever!! May be you need a customized script for this which traces referrer too.
