    Question How many people cloak links?
    Hi All,

    I know there is a threat discussing link cloaking elsewhere on this forum but I wanted to poll the ABW community. How many of you manage your links through a database or other form in attempts to keep the adware/spyware away from your commission?

    Mine are currently ran through a mysql database and grabbed with php. It's a pain in the butt but I think it might be worth it. What methods do those who cloak links use?

    Thanks!

    Yes I use a MySQL database for that but on some stand alone sites using an old feed display system I've got I also use a simple javascript.

    I think most big sites use link cloaking of some kind. It's usually more for click tracking and other factors than for blocking parasites.
