HTML Cloaking Code

by MicahF7 10 replies
Hey Everyone!


I have a simple question ( i hope! )


I am wanting to cloake my affilaite link so that my CPA network can not see were my traffic is coming from...


I know there is something I can do to my link so that the CPA networks can not see the traffic source... I dont know what it is!


Can any help?


Thanks A LOT!

    So you don't want the Network to know?

    Why don't you do a dual re-direct?

    That is, buy up an extra domain (.biz is free at 1and1 right now) and redirect a 2nd time from there?

    Original site > Middle Site > CPA Network

      Thanks a lot BlueSquares...

      Will that really make it so the CPA networks can not see where the traffic source is?

      I gues that what you said... It seems so easy!

      Any other ways out there?

      Thank a lot!

        A CPA can only see one referrer. That is, who sent the traffic. If the middle man sends the traffic, that's all the CPA will see.

        It really is this easy. Don't kill yourself looking for scripts.

          Hey Thanks A LOT!

          I hope you did not miss understand me... I do what the CPA networks to see that the traffic is coming from me, so i get payed. But not the information on the "lead". Im hoping they will not know if its a banner ad, article, blah blah blah!

          This is what you were thinking?

          Dont mean to go on and on! Sorry...

            Just make sure your redirecting domain has the hoplink/affiliate code. You'll be fine. CPA's will never know.

            Here's the primer on redirects.
            PHP Redirect - Redirect Script - Redirect Web Page

            Step 1: Buy and host the "Middle" domain.
            Step 2: Create the redirect as an HTM or PHP file.
            For htm:
            Code:
            <html>
            <?php
               //this will NOT work, the browser received the HTML tag before the script
                header( 'Location: http://www.yoursite.com?affID=12345' ) ;
            ?>
            For PHP:
            Code:
            <?php
               header( 'Location: http://www.yoursite.com?affID=12345' ) ;
            ?>
            Step 3: Send traffic to the redirect page.
            Step 4: Get paid. Your aff links transfer smoothly across. CPA networks have no idea how traffic to the Middle domain was originated.

            I can't make it any easier than this.

              You have been EXTREMELY helpful!

              I have worked with re-directs A LOT!

              I always just use the redirect tool that the hosting company offers... Like with godaddy for example, after you purchase a domain, you can re-direct it where ever you want,

              Could I...
              send the traffic from my website to a domain name, that domain name would then re-direct to the offer using my aff link? Would that work, Im pretty sure thats what your talking about but i just want to dauble check!

              Hey, Thanks again!

                Yes. You can do that also. But remember, you're only allowed one redirect using Godaddy's tool (http://www.yoursite.com). If you use HTM or PHP redirects, you'll be able to redirect more pages (http://www.yoursites.com/burnfat.php, http://www.yoursite.com/whatever.php, etc)

                MicahF7, that's exactly what my link does for you, but it ENCRYPTS IT! PLus it places it in an iframe so it looks like it's coming from your site and not the merchants
