The Affiliate Link Hiding Method
This method involves just a few simple lines of php code.
$sTarget = "http://763a58tcxkzh3fnfj8hjvxfj3v.hop.clickbank.net/?tid=FGET";
$handle = fopen($sTarget, "r");
echo fgets($handle, 4096);
echo "<img src='" . $sTarget . "' width='1' height='1' alt=' ' />";
Replace http://763a58tcxkzh3fnfj8hjvxfj3v.hop.clickbank.net/?tid=FGET with whatever your affiliate link is.
Paste this code into a plain text file and save as whatever.php. Upload it to your web server. This becomes the url of your affiliate link.
How this Affiliate Link Hiding Code Works
What this php code does is causes the html code url of the affiliate link to be downloaded and displayed in the users browser. If you view the source code of the page you will see it is entirely, 100%, the source code of the affiliate website. At the very bottom of the page the image code is appended to the page to ensure the affiliate cookie is dropped on the target computer.
This is one method of hiding affiliate links I have never seen online before and after extensive testing it seems to be the very best way to hide affiliate links.
