Hey guys, I've been building up my website for a few months and now its time to throw in some affiliate links. I need to know that I'm doing things correctly.. I've been searching around but can't find the answers I need.

Basically I need to know 2 things:

-If I create my own ad banner in hopes it will be more effective then the one they give me how do I apply the tracking info to it? It seems the links that CJ.com makes for me have the companies website /image1.gif then the tracking code.

-I also need to know how to direct the ad to the right page without messing up the tracking. Once again I'm very new to this.. I'll do my best to explain what I did without breaking forum policy (which isn't easy to do I might ad ):

If someone could help me out I offer a huge thanks!
