ideally would like to do this with asp and an access database, otherwise with perl,

i want to disguise the url i'm pointing at and as a bonus i'd like to count the click throughs

i've found a few scripts at hotscripts but mostly they use the actual url to be redirected to as a query string - i want to disguise this,

any ideas on a free or cheap script i can get/buy that would suit my needs.

What is wrong with using the basic onmouseover / out commands to disguise your affliate links?

onmouseover="window.status='text displayed on mouse over';return true;" onmouseout="window.status='text displayed on mouse out';return true;"

New Yorker, if he uses just mouseover, he will not be be able to track the clicks.

TOPR, why not try mouseovers with this service: [urllog.com...] Its free and that's what I use to track my clicks. Works very well.

You can also pick LinkCounter.com (although its not free for active use), but very powerful.

Anyways, hope this helps.
