    Primary Links with No Start Date - Not Tracking?
    Noticed with a merchant recently (WildGames.com) that their primary link wasn't converting via some really targeted coupons (6+ people had clicked to say the coupon was working) so I found it strange why we'd not seen any conversions.

    I swapped the Primary link out for a DDI link & what do you know, conversions started happening again today.

    The only thing strange with the Primary link is that it lacks a "start date" (and sets a much shorter cookie when you check the headers) but I'm not sure whether that's what was causing the problems.

    I'm thinking that maybe I'll end up replacing all of my primary links for DDI links now just to make sure they're working......

    @thegyppo was there any resolution with this problem? I am experiencing something similar with a different merchant. Problem started occurring around the same time for you.
