    tracking question
    I regularly send links to pages I've visited via e-mail "send link"
    If someone visits one of my merchants and sends the link to a friend will my cookie get passed?
    And, will the referrer be shown in SAS stats?

    thanks

    Nope. The merchant's "send link" does not include your network affiliate URL/code. Once the email recipient receives the email, the link included is that of the merchant. Any referrer will typically show the email client of the recipient, should they click. Those stats will show up in the merchant's stats/logs, not SAS.

    Question: Who are you sending these to?
    Salty kisses, Sandy toes, and a Pirate's heart...

    Thanks, I'm not sending links like this. I was asking about visitors sending links to their friends.

    If I have a friend shopping, I send them to my site and ask them to click on one of the pic's

    If a visitor comes to your website, clicks on an affiliate link and goes to the merchant the tracking stops there on your visitor's computer...
