    Stealth Redirects
    Hi there,

    I'm setting up my first affiliate campaign at the moment, hoping to go live later in the week. My question is: will it effect my campaign if I use a stealth redirect to my landing pages?

    Here's what I mean by that. I already have a website, lets call it www-examplesite-com but it's completely unrelated to my affiliate campaign. So instead of parting out more moolah for hosting another site I'm planning on using a stealth redirect to a page on examplesite.com that is my landing page.

    So if I have PPC ads going for my affiliate campaign for widgets, people click on these to go to www-widgets-affiliate-com but it's actually a stealth redirect to www-examplesite.com-widgets-affiliate-landing-page-html. To the user it will still appear as though they are on www-widgets-affiliate-com.

    From there they can click on the offer to go to the merchants site and hopefully buy a widget!

    So i'm not trying to dupe anyone into doing anything, or misrepresenting the product, but I wonder whether it will have a negative effect anyway?

    My main reason for using the stealth redirect is so I don't have to stump up the cash for another site. This is my first campaign and I want to try and run on as low a budget as possible until I get my head around what's working and what's not.

    Anyone have any thoughts on this?

    Cheers,
    Ben.

    Yep...

    Why not do direct-to-merchant landing page instead of redirect from your site?

    Hi Donuts,

    Thanks for the response!

    So your saying do a PPC campaign and direct the clicks straight to the merchant rather than to a landing page on my site?

    I think i'm allowed to do that with this merchant but a couple of others I was considering say direct linking isn't allowed. In those cases do you think the stealth redirect would cause problems?

    Cheers,
    Ben.
