    alt="icon" 1px by 1px in LinkShare links
    I saw this question addressed in this post and this post but I think I'm not 100% clear. In linkshare links where has this:

    PHP Code:
    <a href="http://click.linksynergy.com/fs-bin/click?id=XXXXXXX&offerid=XXXXX&type=3&subid=0" >Click Me Please!!!<IMG border=0 width=1 height=1 src="http://ad.linksynergy.com/fs-bin/show?id=XXXXXX&bids=XXXXXXX&type=3&subid=0" 
    do you need the

    PHP Code:
    <IMG border=0 width=1 height=1 src="http://ad.linksynergy.com/fs-bin/show?id=XXXXXX&bids=XXXXXXX&type=3&subid=0" 
    part or can that be removed? I didn't put it in my few links as they were text links and didn't have an image. But now that I think.. why would Linkshare put this is if it wasn't needed.. made me think maybe its needed?

    Thanks,

    The 1x1 px is a impression tracking link for LS. Your sales track without it.

    CJ has the same 1x1 and I never use it and my sales track just fine.

    Sorry for the follow on newbie question. Impression tracking means that Linkshare won't have that someone actually clicked on my link without this but I would still get credit if they buy? So using you as an example, when you look at your sales chart, you see 0 impressions but millions in sales (well hopefully millions!)?

    Yes, as long as you have your affiliate ID.

    Clicks will be tracked. The pixel only tracks ad impressions/displays.
