    If I'm in a yahoo chat room and use a link to my affiliate, does my aff manager see yahoo messenger as the referral?

    go to the yahoo chat room... show this link

    "http://www.junkbusters.com/cgi-bin/privacy" click it and if it shows the referrer to be anything other then "not provided" then your good to go.

    You can always filter it through a DMR

    Even if they wanted to they can't send a referrer because its impossibl...unless they went ahead and created their own browser. A linked clicked from any external program carries no data beside the url.

    I knew I had this posted somewhere but couldn't find it. Thanks buddy. I'm gonna try a nice experiment with this.
