    Is the CJ 1x1 Tracking Pixel Required?
    Can I remove the 1x1 tracking pixel? Does CJ allow this and will my links track properly? Thanks.

    It does show how often the banner or text link is shown. Merchants see this as branding. It used to be stripped to save server space and quicken page load but these days that is not a concern.

    If an affiliate manager see high impressions with low or no clicks its an indication that the traffic is off target. An affiliate can see that same thing.

    Datafeeds from CJ don't even have the 1x1 tracking link in them.

    We also remove them from all links.

    We use our own adsever to host/serve the images so we have our own internal tracking.

    Depending on how we serve our text links we incorporate different methods of tracking...

    Yes, they do. Not that many folks ever use them though; the 1x1's are just extraneous code clutter as far as most of us (affiliates) are concerned.

    I'm working on a CJ feed that I got today right now and there is no 1x1 tracking code in the feed. Only the merchants buy link and their image url.

    It has 20,000 items in the feed.
