Internet business owners should use anti-theft software to secure their commissions. Here are some things you can do to save yourself and your commissions:

It provides a clean way to present relevant links in the newsletter. This will probably help reduce commission bypassing and commission hijacking. The great advantage of using meta refreshes is that if merchants change their affiliate links, you can quickly and easily convert links to dozens of pages by simply changing a single file.
One problem is that some search engines do not like meta refreshes because they are often used for unnecessary purposes. So if you use this technique, use it with caution.
