    Share a Sale Links & Tracking Subids
    Hi everyone:

    THE QUESTION:

    If I move the subid parameter from the middle of an SaS link to the end of the link - will it invalidate the link, or will it still track correctly?

    THE SITUATION:

    I am trying to setup ppc conversion tracking for my SaS links using software called Tracking202.

    The software requires that I enter my affiliate links in a format that allows them to append their own subids to the END of the link. i.e. the SaS subid syntax "&afftrack=" should be at the end of the link.

    Unfortunately, when I generate the SaS link (using the Custom Builder), it places the afftrack parameter in the middle of the link (see below)

    THE ANSWER:
    ?????????????


    Please help.

    have you tried changing the order of the link and then testing the link to see if it tracks in sas?

    If formatted correctly it won't matter what order & parameters are added into the links...

    Is there a parameter I can add to identify "test clicks" which should not be counted? I think I remember this being mentioned a long time ago, but I can't seem to find this with several searches.

    Everyone:

    Thanks for the quick response and comments.

    Actually, I have tested it out and the link directs properly - but I was worried whether my sales would still be credited.

    Once again, thank you all.
