How can I get links of any specific pages on my advertiser's website via CJ, something like LinkShare's deep linking?

CJ urls are in the following format:
You need to grab an AID that supports 'url redirecting'.
when you look for links in your CJ panel, search for 'redirecting', 'deep linking'. sometimes its under the main page (i.e., publisher.com) link.
You can then append a url to the link like so:
make sure to url encode (percent-escape) the url bit.

Ask your Affiliate Manager if they allow deep linking. Not everyone does.
In CJ, if the AM asks for their links to be set up for customization, than their text links can be customizable in that the Text and the Landing Page URL can be deleted (back spaced out) and you can insert your own text and landing page from the advertiser's site. Click "Update Html" and CJ will generate the HTML code you need, with tracking, for the text and landing page of your choice. Just try to avoid spaces in the URL and always check your spelling!
Some Advertisers have Link Generators (outside of CJ) that also enable you the flexibility of deep linking. It's 100% on you to enter the correct PID number though, because again, the tool lives outside of the network.
Bottom line, in CJ, if you can backspace text and the Landing Page URL, then it's usually fair to say the Advertiser is okay with you doing so and thus driving clicks to pages of your choice (loose definition of 'deep linking.') If you can't do this in CJ though, you will want to contact the advertiser before manipulating their links and ultimately their brand.

@danidgross - thanks for the tip about adding keywords to the AID that supports Deep Linking. I'll add those to our "Custom Link ID' link right away! It defintiely helps to search within an advertiser's links and keyword searches make it easy to sort through hundreds of options...

Deep linking is what made the eBay affiliate program so successful (in the early days - once their aff managers finally "got it"). Unfortunately, there are still a LOT of managers out there that are clueless.

I did an experiement by using the following structure:
I always use my PID. The issue no matter what AID I used (might be some numbers I randomly picked), it always goes to xyz.com.
If we use a wrong AID, will xyz.com give commission?
Do we just say xyz.com offers deep linking just because the above method works?
