    nah. but thanks.
    So I'm wondering why someone has created offto.net and made it public for other affiliates.

    Who created it and why the hell is it being used by others?

    I created my own redirect site just for me, is offto.net the most popular for affiliates and is it trusted?

    trusted? I trust others as far as I can throw them.

    I have no idea what you mean, and yes I mean trusted?
    Because they could change the links that get traffic and such.

    I just meant that I don't trust anybody, especially not sites like that. changing links containing a certain keyword to reroute the traffic somewhere else is quite easy.

    Create your own redirector, it's easy enough in php or perl. Don't use a third party redirector, they are like waving a big red flag at your account manager saying, "I have something I don't want you to see."

    yes that's what I did. But why would it be like waving a big red flag?
    I think its just a normal url shortener / redirect service for those affiliates that don't have their own. Which shouldn't wave any big red flag for any account manager.

    I just don't understand why offto.net is so popular.
