    Pix in the link? is it a must ? what it is for ?
    Hi all,

    I am just have a few questions about the CJ tracking links

    In the text links, for example
    < a hre f = "http:// /click-linkid" target="_top">
    Adverts TEXT < / a > < im g src= "http:// /image-linkid" width="1" height="1" border="0"/>

    Shall the img (pix) be embed in the links to make the transaction tracking works? so to speck, is it a Must ?

    I just want to make a domain forwarding, can I just simple enter the href in the forwarding destination ?

    BTW, does CJ have any function to let publisher to build their own links ?

    The pixel just tracks impressions and has nothing whatsoever to do with click/sales tracking. It has long been a common practice to just toss these for sake of less code clutter on pages.

    re: build you own links. There is a loinger explanation, but in a nut shell, if a merchnat has some product links, ithe url will have code http://www....?url=http://foo Look for the ?url= Take that link up until the = sign and replace what's after the = sign with the page you want to foward it to. 90+% of the time it'll work, there may be some need for url-encoding every once in a while (usually this isn't necessary), but since you are a beginner start with this and see if it'll work.

    I don't want to go for a whole big explanation of if this then do that and in this case it'll never work.

    You have to be careful with that for another reason: Some merchants do not have product links available for certain products because they do not want affiliates promoting them and they will not pay commissions on them.

    The primary reason for it being there is to immediately delete it.

    A secondary reason is for it to seriously mess with your carefully crafted CSS .img tags.

    At least it's not as bad as linkshare's.
