    Hi Everyone,

    As I've been reading up on cloaking links, I came across the suggestion that it will increase sales to use cookies, so that if someone finds your affiliate product, and then bookmarks the page and comes back, the customer will still be linked to you as an affiliate. Without using cookies, I am under the impression that the user might bookmark the site, come back and because there is no record (via a cookie) that the buyer originally came through you, you can lose sales.

    Does anyone use this technology, and if so what would you recommend to someone who is out of date with coding and would like that part to be as easy as possible.

    Thanks,
