    Hey guys so recently I decided to jump in to CPA + Youtube methods and I followed HaRRo's post in the Youtube section exactly. The problem I'm having is getting my blog to redirect to my aff link/offer thing. He provided a script/code in the post, but doesn't say where it's supposed to go in the template. I put it in my template after it said "header", and nothing happens, no redirect. Can the experienced bloggers help me out? I know nothing about HTML, XML, CSS, etc.

    Thanks.

    I don't know if this is what you are looking for but I simply edit the layout and add a html/javascript gadjet
    then I put this code into the gadjet
    Code:
    <script language="javascript">
    document.location='URL-to- Redirect-Here';
    </script>

    Yeah that looks similar to HaRRo's code, but I don't know where to put it. Sorry, I'm a super-noob when it comes to blogging :(



    EDIT: Nevermind. I just figured it out like right after I posted. But thank you Joslo for guiding me.

    Here is how you do it. Log into your blogger account and make a new post, don't worry about the title. In the post body add this code :

    Code:
    <META HTTP-EQUIV="refresh" content="0;URL=http://yourwebsite.com">
    An error message will display when you hit publish, thats ok, just check the box and hit publish. Then you will make one more post and paste the code again. After you do that it will work.

    I set up a demo at birthcontrolsolutions.blogspot.com. I set it up to redirect to godaddy.com. May the force be with you Luke.

    If this is good ish, feel free to hit the thanks for your boy!

    Hmm that looks like it will work also. Thanks d1u0w4. But yeah, Joslo's way worked just fine.

    I have a question though: Do I need a double-meta refresh on my blog, or will it look like the traffic is just coming from my blog, making a meta refresh unnecessary?

    Its simply a great idea to redirect blogger to a CPA page, it save the cost of domain name. anyway u can also try to use free hosting to use redirection also.

    Well guys, after maybe 6 hours of my blog being up, Blogger's "spam-prevention robot has detected that your blog has characteristics of a spam blog." I guess Blogger doesn't like it when my blog redirects to a CPA page. Time for free hosting as blogbd1 recommended.

    ***Update*** This site has been flagged as potential spam, so I have removed the redirect. Just so you know to keep this in mind when using redirects on bl0gger bl0gs.

    much easier is to register a co.cc domain. then u can just redirect it to ur aff link. or u can get free webhost such as 000webhost and do whatever u like there. u can even have email accounts setup there.

    Hi tata or anyone who has experience with co.cc

    its 2am here...and my mind is so :sleepy:, I have one question , for URL Forwarding under co.cc domain settings, do I choose

    1. Pathforwarding, or
    2. URL Hiding?

    Sorry for gravedigging, but I found an answer to this question and thought I could help.

    Refer to this page for the code for DMF:
    Code:
    blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/black-hat-seo-tools/20750-double-meta-refresh-redirects.html
    Sign up for an account on ooowebhost. they will give you information for your FTP account. download FileZilla, an FTP server program.

    in notepad, copy + paste the following:
    PHP:
    <?php

        
    {
            echo 
    "<meta http-equiv=\"refresh\" content=\"0;url=URL2\">";    
        }

    ?>

    and save the file as something like index2.php (make sure the file type is saved as php, and not txt).

    then run FileZilla, connect to the FTP server (enter the HOST name [the main url of your free hosted page], the username they assign, and your password), and drag the file index2.php into your site. That's all there is to it.

    you can modify this easily to do a double meta refresh, as noted in the other article.
