OP's link redirecting via www.jdoqocy.com ?

Anybody have this issue?

With some deals, when I click the OP's link (or deal), I see in the new browser window that the url is redirecting via a site called http://www.jdoqocy.com

It eventually times out cause that site I guess doesn't exist.

I've never noticed this before until today/recently.

Should I be concerned? Damn, I hope I don't have malware/spyware.

If you want, you can take a look at your hosts file first (it's just a text file with a list of IPs and hostnames) and look for jdoqocy before reflashing the entire phone Smilie
I took a peek into /system/etc/hosts and realized that the hosts file was created by AdAway and had entries for jdoqocy!
I deleted that entry, then was again blocked by an entry for www.apmebf.com.
Deleted that entry, then again blocked by www.emjcd.com
Deleted that entry, then FINALLY was able to be redirected to the product page.

Solved! [Well half solved, since I have to manually remove it myself instead of slickdeals members/admin preventing re-directs in the first place]

Is there any way slickdeals can restrict the type of ad-referring revenue sites that are used? I'm guessing 'NO' because it would be hard to strike a deal between slickdeals and ad-blocking writers cuz this undermines their mission.
But it is very tiresome to remove each entry!

EDIT: Thanks for the hosts file tip. I did not know the ROM builders had added the AdAway hosts file. Also found out that I could add these sites to the Whitelist on the AdAway app and have AdAway rebuild the hosts file. Still a pain whenever I encounter another fail redirect but meh... slickdeals has to eat too.

Those redirects are just normal affiliate links - if we stopped using those, we would be unable to keep the site running Wink

And no, we can't choose specific ones, as merchants pick the one they wish to use (and those sites are from one of the largest, so we definitely can't deny those) Wink

If you'd like a quick list to remove first to fix most of them, here's the one from the FAQ:
  • qksrv.net
  • kqzyfj.com
  • tkqlhce.com
  • anrdoezrs.net
  • dpbolvw.net
  • jdoqocy.com
  • commission-junction.com
  • apmebf.com
  • emjcd.com
  • linksynergy.com
  • cc-dt.com
  • shareasale.com
  • affiliatefuture.com
  • avantlink.com
  • pntra.com
  • gopjn.com
  • pntrack.com
  • pjtra.com
  • pjatr.com
  • pntrs.com
  • pntrac.com
  • redirect.at
  • redirectingat.com
  • onenetworkdirect.net
  • go2jump.org
  • doubleclick.net
  • evyy.net

It probably won't fix all of them, but it might give you a while before you run in to another blocked domain Smilie

thanks this solution worked on my android, i was always wondering why the links on slickdeals wouldn't load sometimes and would get errors of the page not loading, i guess it was my adaway blocker i had installed, so instead of deleting the app and host file i just added your list of sites to the "whitelist". thanks for the info.
