    Hey, Im just starting out with PPC, I was wondering when direct linking to a cpa offer, or clickbank product, do i need my own domain? or can i use like tinyurl? or is there a cloaker for this stuff?

    Thanks

    It depends on how big your traffic is and if it's legit. If it's spam you would like to fake the referer. Otherwise directlink and bit.ly works good :)

    I don't mean to hijack your thread but I'm linking my affiliate urls with a rel="nofollow" 301 redirect to a sub-domain, is that bad for SEO, does that count as a broken link?

    Example
    <a href="http://GO.mydomain.com/ID" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Visit</a>

    I would recommend using prosper202 for click tracking and conversion optimization. Also, you can set it up to do double meta refresh and block ref. You'll need a domain for that though, otherwise you can use bit.ly, just remember that someone can put a + at the end of the bitly url and see your traffic :)

    I think tinyurl is fine. Also you could use is . gd too.

    Goodluck with PPC Mate!

    If I understand your question right, you mean to say you are starting with an Adwords campaign? For Adwords, you will need a site where you will be sending your traffic to. You cant just use TinyURL in the destination URL and display URL. I will recommend you start by reading Policies to avoid any account killing.
