creat3cp,

I just thought I saw it when going through the videos again yesterday, I will try to hunt it down for you. In the meantime, you can do a searchn in Google (or the SE of your choice) for redirect scripts and you'll have a lot to choose from.

Not sure if you're talking about this or not but this is how to redirect someone and mask your affiliate link.

Create a directory on your server - say for example "affilorama". In it, create a file called index.php and add the following php code:



Make sure there are no spaces after the "?>" or you'll get a warning when you try to run it.

To redirect people to an affiliate link, use "http://domain.com/affilorama" (no quotes of course). The index.php file will redirect the user to the affiliate site, using the the affiliate code and set the appropriate cookie but mask your affiliate code.

Hope this helps.

Folks,

I also came upon this that may be a interest to some.

You can mask affiliate or long links by going to tinyurl.com - a FREE site!.

Enter your link you want to mask and in return you will get back a, guess what? tinyurl.com/link...

Simple and effective...

Though my earlier solution, in my opinion, gives a bit more control and flexibility.

Hope this helps,
Randy

Hi Tarraco,

First thanks for sharing the link. I found that useful for me. Will like to check do clickbank no problem tracking for the commission with the affiliate encrypter and cloaker?

Thanks,

Redirect Links and Tracking

Hello everyone - I have a question that I have researched but have not really found the answer yet and maybe someone can help. It is regarding redirecting affiliate links with tracking code.

Here is my example...



My website is at:

    http://www.abcxyz.com
I am an affiliate and have the following content page promoting a product called redwidgets:

    http://www.abcxyz.com/article-about-redwidgets/index.html
In the content, I want to have an affiliate link to:

we-be-widgets.com/buy-red-widget
I have created a redirect directory on my website:

    http://www.abcxyz.com/redwidget-redirect-page
and have installed a php file in the directory as follows

    http://www.abcxyz.com/redwidget-redirect-page/index.php
with only the following code in the index.php file:

<?php
header("Location:
    http://www.we-be-widgets.com/buy-red-widget
");
?>


I want to assign a tracking id to this destination URL in the Ad(s) for this Adgroup.


When a visitor arrives and clicks on the affiliate link redirect, I would like for the tracking id to be included thru to the vendors page and thru the purchase process to the thank you page (where I have google conversion tracking installed).

The vendor also provides tracking id analytics data...but only if the tracking id makes it thru to them.

Help? Maybe it is just a simple modification of the php code... But what if I advertise and sell 10 different red widgets in various sizes, each with a seperate landing page.

Thanks!

Jeff
