    If im using CL to get potential leads, and then sending them to my url that redirects to the offer, for all the network knows im using PPC and sending them to the url right?

    Just want to double and triple check ;)

    Are you sending them to your aff link from CL or from emails?? Either way your traffic will never look like it came from PPC pages as you will either have a CL referer or email referer.

    You have 2 options:
    1. Blank the referer by using a DMR http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...0996-blank-referer-v2-0-meta-refresh-dmr.html
    2. Change the referer to your site by using a script http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...rators/82992-how-fake-referer.html#post781922

    If you have wordpress you could use Brad's script to accomplish option 2 above.

    Hope that helps

    Hmm aiit either im not understanding or i wasnt clear enough lol.

    When i send an email to the possible leads, it has my site http://whateversite.com which redirects the possible leads to the aff link auto. Wouldnt that make whateversite the referrer and not the email.

    Wouldnt it be neither CL referrer ( because im not putting the link in the ad ) and not email ( because they arnt going from email to offer, their going from email to my site to offer, making my site the refferrer)

    ???

    Depends on the method of your redirection... If you are using a 301 redirect or an iFrame only then it will show the email referer....

    I think more important than the above is: 1) don't make your CL post something any marketer could spot from a mile away. The best case is when you can devise it so that no one even realizes they've just been had, even after it's happened. 2) don't piss off your customers (too much). Networks do go through and email the obvious ads to see who's behind them (all the bullshit bizopp and freebies, etc), and customers will complain about you if you fuck them over. All the cloaking in the world won't save your ass if you ignore those 2 rules.

    Home Page:
    if you are sending an email to a user of craigslist, and they have to follow a link in the email leading to your offer, your network will see emailproviders like hotmail or gmail as the referer.
    so just tel them you have a few email lists and you are promoting to the subscribers(only for offers that allow email marketing obviously).

    second, a simple redirect from your domain wil NOT change the referer value to your website.
    you have to use a DMR to blank all referers. this way the network and merchant will never see any referer value and you can tell them anything you like. but some networks will bitch about that..

    or you can use a script that changes the referer value to whatever you want. this way you can tell them its ppc traffic (or wathever you want) and show them a lander for the offer.

    you could also mail them a link to a genuine lander/presell, and link to the offer from thatt page. this will show your lander as the referer plus you have the ability to presell the user.

    just try and see what works best for you.
