    How does cj, linkshare, google etc. track links?
    Hi everyone, sorry to sound so redundant but I have been using alot of links and using my own yourl coverter and posting them on my site and it seems I'm not getting the same same amount of clicks on cj, linkshare, google etc compared to my yourl tracker. Does anyone know if the text link have to be placed with the impression image in order to get credit for the click/sale. I hope I havent left a bunch of sales on the table because I;m not placing my links correctly. Can anyone share some tips or info on what these networks look for when the track sales? Thank you.

    Allen

    Your link shortener stats are probably going to include clicks that aren't recorded by the networks, like bots or clicks where the browser was closed before the shopper actually waited for the next page to load.

    Thank you, this helps a lot. However, do you know if they track links if you take the target link out of the original code to place on your site with out the impression link attached to it?

    Thanks,

    The impression pixel only tracks impressions, it doesn't affect click tracking. It is up to you to test your links and be sure they are still setting a cookie or showing your test clicks in your account.
