    I plan on direct linking to a cpa offer, however I would like to rotate 3-4 offers first meaning that if someone clicks on my ad he is taken to one of the 3 offers by chance
    (of course the distribution should be equally). So I know which one converts best after a few hundred clicks.

    Does anyone know of a software or script solution for this?

    With PHP, you can easily do it.
    Make a php script on your server and name it e.g. offer.php . Here is the barebone code for the php file
    Code:
    <?php 
    $offer_array = array('link1' , 'link2' , 'link3');
    $length = count($offer_array) - 1;
    $random_index = rand(0,$length) ;
    header('Location:'.$offer_array[$random_index]);
    
    Obviously, this is pretty basic. You can add a lot of things to it and probably can track whom went where ;)


    Best of luck..

    Thanks, for the great info! However I know nothing about php what so ever :(
    Would I need to build a site and place it on it? Will I still be able to track everything accordingly using sub id and tracking pixel?

    The script I wrote for you doesn't have the tracking code in it, but it can be done (the script just routes to a link randomly..). Your best bait is to hire someone if you do not know how to do it yourself. Yes you need some kind of a server where you would save this as offer.php or something. I can help you out on this for a minimal price if you choose me. Send me a PM if interested.
