    Hi all -- I imagine that most if not all of you tend not to use your clickbank links in their conventional form on your webpages, due to the risk of other affiliates snipping off your name, etc. And now with the default settings of Norton Anti-virus 2004 not showing a lot of affiliate links, it's even more of an issue. (The lists I have seen of code snippets not shown in NAV 04 don't seem to include Clickbank links.)

    So what *do* you do? I am current using Namestick, which is just a subdomain redirect system. If you had unlimited subdomains on an account (which I didn't when I signed up for it), you could do the same thing.

    Like others, I am delighted to see this forum getting started!

    Hi Rosana

    I use this method (works only if you have PHP support on your server). Say I want to send one to my affiliate link for nick xxxxx. Then I create a PHP file called cb-prod.php like this -

    <?
    header("Location: http://hop.clickbank.net/hop.cgi?ebizindia/xxxxx");
    ?>

    Then I use this link on sales pages like this -
    http://www.ebizindia.com/cb-prod.php

    Since this is handled on the server side, it directly takes the prospect to the merchant's sales page.

    Question Is "Namestick" a service or product?

    Question Should I be worried about people stealing my commission if I am not marketing internet marketing products?
    Also where can I find out more info about PHP redirect?

    Thank you

    That is all you need to know about redirects in PHP.

    If you don't have PHP on your server, you still can use the traditional html redirect:
    <head>
    <meta HTTP-EQUIV="REFRESH" CONTENT="0;
    URL=http://hop.clickbank.net/hop.cgi?yourclickbank-id/your-merchants-id">
    </head>

    Good luck

    Hi esseryn

    In response to your question, "Namestick" is a domain service
    provided by the nitro marketing guys Matt Gill and Kevin Wilke.

    http://www.namestick.com is their domain.

    Although on the touch expensive side, it is a good service.

    I personally use Jim Edwards' Affiliate Link Cloaker to cloak all
    my affiliate links and have had no problems as of yet.

    Hope this helps.

    Tony

    Hi everyone. I just joined-such a good idea to have a CB forum.

    I use tiny url but I do wish that it had a better name!

    I agree with Arun. PHP redirects are a quick and easy way to hide your affiliate URL, but there is a lot more you can do with them.

    I have a page on my site that goes into some detail other uses for PHP redirects, like ad tracking.

    Take a look at http://internetmarketing-news.com/hidelinks.htm
