    I used the source code of a guy that had a redirect script. He was using a blank page in his domain name as a redirect. Then I just use a simple mail merge in word to find & replace with all your affiliate links & upload your page.
    SEMrush
    This might not be the best or fastest way but it has worked for me. I hope this made sense - You can go to one of my page to see what I mean at http://www.productsinreview.com/DayJobKiller.html and copy the source to make your own pages. I meta tag all my pages but I'm not sure it is necessary or even relevant. Others might have a better understanding of that than I. Again I'm a little technically challenged.

    Well my web hosting service has a redirect manager and can create redirects for me automatically so that's what I use to cloak my affiliate links...

    what about using frames? I think that would be a good option too

    Yes it happened to me also... MSN and Google indexed some of my PHP Redirect URLs but not all... and when I checked Google webmaster tools it listed some PHP Redirect URLs and says that they are blocked by my robots.txt file.. but I didnt blocked those files or folder... And i am looking for a solution for that now.... I contacted the hosting support and then i deleted the .htaaces file for that folder... let me see if goog can index all those files now......

    It really depends what you want...if a plain header redirect is fine for you..then just make a simple PHP file. But if you need more see my above post. There are so many commercial ones around...but they use techniques which can cause you to lose commission. I really, really would say that the $29,90 CovertLinks costs are money WELL spent. I am also working with the programmer to get rid of some MINOR bugs. The dude really knows what he is talking about since i saw his threads over at W-forum...thats why i bought this ! Hands down the best !

    This was my problem too. I hope there is a site like tinyurl.com but can customize generated URL so that won't be too obvious. Anyone knows a site that offers that feature?

    use the link cloaker in my sig. It works well. You can make your own directory and name of the link. unlike tinyurl where you only get code numbers. And the best thing is it is free

    I also found this website, zoom.us.to.
    It creates a custom zoom.us.to/whatyouwant URL so it wouldn't be that obvious that it is not an affiliation link. :) Try it for your self too.

    There are a million ways to cloak links so the visitor can't tell it's an affiliate link, but in the end, when the buyer ends up on the product owners website, your affiliate ID shows right in the address bar.

    What's shown in the address bar of a merchants site cannot be altered or controlled by the affiliate *unless* they're showing it a frame or Iframe, or somehow displaying the content on a landing page in a domain they have access to. That's what I believe, but have always wished it were otherwise.

    Now, if someone tells me I'm wrong, then PLEASE straighten me out - I'm ALL EARS and you;ll have my eternal gratitude!!! -

    To me, that's always been the downfall of promoting ANY Clickbank product where the site owner doesn't do a redirect on their end - which is probably 98% of them...

    signed,
    Really Hoping I'm Wrong ;)
