I am in the process of building a website that will review companies in a specific niche. I would like to join the affiliate program for each of these companies I review and earn each time the visitor buys the service. I haven't done much with affiliate marketing in the past and I have some questions that are probably pretty basic for most of you about how I should set this up. I read about not sending visitors "directly to the offer". Is a landing page fine? Or should I just send them to the home page? I know I need to cloak the affiliate links on my site to hide the traffic source. I can search and figure that out later. But if I am hiding the traffic source by cloaking the links, then I probably shouldn't give the affiliate network my real website address when signing up, right? So, what am I supposed to give them for my web address? If I am cloaking my affiliate links, will they question me about my traffic sources? What should I tell them? Should I be buying junk traffic? I own one of the companies on the site that's being reviewed. I am on a shared hosting plan. The reviews site would be installed as an addon domain in cpanel of the site I am promoting on the reviews site. So, so the addon domain in cpanel looks like "reviewsite.moneysite.com", but just looks like "reviewsite.com" to viewers. I am not aware of anyway to view this connection besides in cpenal. In other words, is there any way for people to find out that one of the sites I am reviewing is hosted on the same shared plan as the reviews site, because of the addon domain name containing the money site domain name? They would both be on dedicated IPs.
