    hi i saw a small script that would allow you to redirect an affiliate link to something much more user friendly.

    so you could use:
    www.mysite.com/affiliateprogramURL

    instead of
    www.affiliateprogramURL.com/?id=445e&pg=home&tracking=53422

    i saw a nice one (here?) that had a simple web interface and click tracking.

    I know how to do this with .htaccess
    HTML:
    Redirect Permanent  /affiliateprogramURL www.affiliateprogramURL.com/?id=445e&pg=home&tracking=53422
    but would like to setup hundreds through a web interface.

    thanks

    Hi cvos,

    Welcome to 5 Star!

    You probably saw it here or at my blog.
    This one's slick and it's what I use.
    Super easy interface, great stats and
    graphs of your outbound clicks for tracking.

    Organize, Track and Cloak Affiliate Links EASY

    Its not free but it's good.

    FYI Lesson I learned the hard way. I mainly use it for tracking my outbound clicks to my clients so I know how much traffic I'm driving. On of my clients said THEY could not track my inbound traffic because I was using a framed link. I didn't even know I'd done it.

    So if you add a description to your link it will frame the link.
    If you don't add a description it will be a normal cloaked link like you described.
    Some affiliate programs don't allow framing so be careful.

    You can build your own but creating a new folder at your host and putting there index.php with the code

    HTML:
    <script> 
    url="'http://www.affiliate.com/yourcodehere; 
    if(document.images) { top.location.replace(url); } 
    else { top.location.href=url; } 
    </script> 
    
    Loading 
    <a href="http://www.affiliate.com/yourcodehere">page</a>...

    I got it recommend over DP forum so it's not my idea.
