    Links not active?
    I am a newbie to the Google affiliate program and after loading many many coupons onto my site I realized there is a problem. NONE OF THEM ARE WORKING!. When clicked on it get a "This link is not active" message. These all came from my list of approved merchants.
    I realize I could be making a very simple mistake but I have checked and double checked everything and of course Google offers no phone support.

    This is a very big weekend for us and this is very frustrating! Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

    If you just applied to be an affiliate for these merchants or if it's a BYOL, it's going to take some time to activate. GAN batches these new links every so often. It can be fast, it can take longer. In the meantime your visitors get a "This link is not active" message. It sucks but it's GAN.
    As GAN is experiencing technical problems right now you may have to wait hours for these links to be active.

    Thanks for the reply
    Thanks Zeus for your reply. That makes some sense dealing with Google.
    I'll keep checking the coupons.

    Hello,

    If you have specific examples, please email me. As mentioned, new links for new relationships can take time to activate.

    Thank you,
