    Since you seem to be new at it, buy a domain name and simply do a 301 redirect to your aff link. Of course there are more sophisticated ways to spoof and fake your referrer but they require quite a bit of working / coding knowledge.

    Thanks for the info. Was also wondering if it would be simpler to just use MCL because of there referrer blanking?

    Just out of curiosity why would one want to hide their traffic sources from the company that pays you?

    I''m not 100% sure, but you can post your URL on twitter then twitter will give you a shortened URL, if you use that click I believe it will always show twitter as the source.

    Again, i'm not 100% - but you can give it a go and see.

    I think the simplest way is to use an website like bit.ly to change from where your traffic comes.

    If you use a content locker you will be able to conceal where your traffic is comming from the networks.

    Twitter use t.co (it shows as full link in a number of softwares instead of t.co) and the CPA companies can easily track that he's saying Twitter to hide his original source, NO?
