    Why Hide the Referrer?

    I can see it done to prevent theft of a niche but why else?

    A merchant will want to see my sales page. especially if I do well.

    How do I get way with it once he asks or tracks?

    Say you are using PPC and he should know that what key words you are bidding on/ you sales page etc. are priceless information. Or tell him you bought banner space on niche related websites and want to hold the information confidential so that you can keep your sales good. or just start using DMR.

    Well it depends how you are marketing the product in most cases people want to hide or fake the referrer if they are using methods not allowed by the ?CPA Network? or ?Vender? for example spam

    There was talk of some networks / managers actually getting all the keywords from affiliates and then disabling accounts and then re-using affiliates keywords..

    e.g.

    Yup, don't trust anyone. The guys at the top feed on the guys at the bottom, and if you're on the bottom you need to do all you can to avoid getting screwed. Cause once you're screwed, there's nothing you can do about it. :)
