    I have no idea if this is happening but I am wondering if my affiliate traffic is getting ripped off. How would someone be able to steal my traffic if it goes from forwarding url to another forwarding url to the actual link? Is it even possible?

    Maybe I worded it wrong. I am the affiliate and I am using two seperate urls to forward to the actual affiliate link. The first one is a free service for forwarding urls, then it goes to a domain I own which is forwarded to the affiliate link. Is there a way to steal my traffic in there?

    It is possible and If I was running a free service for forwarding urls I would be stealing a portion of your traffic.

    are you experiencing traffic loss? usually this sort of assumption is due to unforeseen elements, and no traffic stealing is going on. why do you think you're getting ripped off?
