URL Forwarding

I am currently in the process of finding my niche. I do have a question. I have a URL that i have forwarded through Godaddy. But, when the site it is forwarded to comes up I can still see my Affiliate link. What can I do to stop this.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
thanks

Hi Marvin,

When you use URL forwarding, what it does is redirect to the URL you specified and it displays the URL that you redirect it to in the browser address bar. There's no way around that unless the merchant's website itself is configured to not show your affiliate id.

To not show the destination URL, URL masking is usually used. HOWEVER, URL masking is known to mess up referral tracking and it is frowned upon by certain PPC networks.
