    I notice that many sites have some kind of redirecting page? Why is that? I'm just curious. I just have the link that CJ gives me. But, on many sites, I notice that when I click on their link, it goes to their own personal redirecting page and then it goes to that site. Is there something I don't know about here?

    Those sites that redirect are database driven.

    Or they are merchants sites which are their own affiliates.

    or maybe the affiliate keeps count of the amount of visitors who click off their site.

    There are many reasons, not all of them sinister.

    nel1215,

    Those sites usually are database driven, although you don't have to use a redirect with a database driven site. And like Pete said, there are many reasons you might do this, internal tracking of clicks being one of the most common reasons.

    It's a good way to track the outgoing clicks for affiliate sales. But if you wanted to setup your own PPC advertising, you could use the redirect to record the clicks.
