- avoid sneaky redirects
There is an update within their quality rating guidelines, which were leaked in June I believe, that have an example of a sneaky redirect. That example is of a standard CJ affiliate link which everyone using CJ has. Google's affiliate network has the same type of links.
It appears that if an affiliate link has an additional domain name within the redirects it is to be considered sneaky by the raters.
mysite/GAN/shop = sneaky
mysite/CJ/shop = sneaky
mysite/shop = ok
By that logic a url shortening link is *sneaky* too ?!
