Hi All, I want to place a few affiliate links on my (soon to be live) website and I have a question. I've heard people say you should cloak your link so your affiliate id can't be removed. Some people use sites like tinyurl for this, but to me those links just seem to ooze "something to hide" and I'm very reluctant to click anywhere its obvious someone doesn't want me to see where I'm going. Other people use a page on their own site with a meta refresh tag, but I've read that search engines hate these links and it is not advisable to use them. The other common tactic seems to be buying a domain and redirecting traffic to the affiliate site. So my actual question is can I make a link to a non-existent page on my own domain and set up a 301 redirect to the affiliate site? Any downside to this? Thanks for your time!
