    Is WhenU getting special treatment at CJ?

    I found special coding of A SaveNow popup when visiting B&N.com.

    Half.com Popup

    Viewing the source I discover SPECIAL TREATMENT CJ tracking!



    function mNav() {
    window.open('http://www.commission-junction.com/track/track.dll?AID=204382&PID=442402&URL=http%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Ehalf%2Ecom','mnav');
    }

    CelticOneDesign,

    Was it an affiliate link? I'm pretty sure it wasn't.

    'http://www.commission-junction.com/track/track.dll?AID=204382&PID=XXXXXXXXX&URL=http%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Ehalf%2Ecom
    is an affiliate link..

    But this is not special treatment, is it? Just a standard (old style CJ) link...or is there something I'm missing?

    I'd rather they not be an affiliate at all though! [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_mad.gif[/img]

    This particular page spawns all kinds of pop-ups!!

    It is trying to get me to download something. I deleted my cookies and loaded the page again to see what would happen and it happened the second time.

    I am not experiencing this anywhere but this page.

    new cookies are

    Cookie:anyuser@exitfuel.com/

    Cookie:anyuser@adserv.internetfuel.com/

    and a bunch of stuff that starts like this

    It was a popup from WhenU while visiting B&N.
    The source code is from the popup.

    I have never seen CJ tracking code like that before.

    Haiko,
    No problem here, but, err..that wasn't my info. It was the link from CelticOneDesign's first post (Which is still present..). Probably a good idea to remove it, I'd hate to see someone accidentally give a sale to WhenU or whoever's tracking code that is. Please remove the link the first post too [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    C1D,
    This was the old style CJ tracking. All of the links were of the format `http://www.commission-junction.com/t...XXX&PID=YYYYYY

    I'm not sure of the exact time they switched to the newer qwkserv.net linking. AFAIK the old links still track. I still have a few around some old pages.
