    I have been trying to figure this out for like the past hour and am not even sure what I am supposed to search for.

    I have an affiliate link and a domain. How do I change the affiliate link into my domain?

    I am not even sure if this is called cloaking, but am having the hardest time figuring this out.

    I assume you mean you want to redirect your domain to the affil link?

    There are a couple ways to do this off the top of my head. The first is to go into the control panel of the domain name registrar and change it through the "domain forwarding" options.

    The second is to paste the following code into notepad and save it as "index.html" and then upload it your server for that webpage.

    Code:
    <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
    <html>
    <head>
    <title>Your Title</title>
    <meta http-equiv="REFRESH" content="0;url=Your CPA/Whatever Link"></HEAD>
    <BODY>
    </BODY>
    </HTML>

    You just set your domain to be a domain name forwarder. There should be a very simple setting that asks you where you want to forward your domain name to.

    Does google penalise a site for domain forwarding of any sort..or is it fairly standard seo?.
    I was doing it awhile ago..within 2 days my site was deindexed..might have been due to something else though..

    Ok lets think about that for a second . Your domain is being forwarded another words your domain has nothing on it . You want google to keep a site with nothing on it in its index? Or you think google is dumb enough to think that the forwarded site is your site ?
