    I just became aware of the Lehman's site redesign that has effectively killed thousands of individual product and page links I spent hundreds of hours creating. All of which with absolutely NO heads up warning from anyone at Lehmans or CJ.

    THANKS FOR NOTHING Lehmans

    Anyone having links to Lehman's, other than their main page link, needs to do MAJOR rehab to their links.

    Affiliates Check your links!

    Have some sort of schedule whereby you test a few pages a day or something like that. Automated checkers cannot verify the correct content of a page, it needs to be done manually. (as far as I know)

    A number of times this year I've been caught out by merchants changing their sites around and effectively making my affiliate site useless.

    I opened a thread here earlier this week about The Sporting News - if I hadn't clicked my links I still wouldn't have been wise to them being deactivated since CJ never did notify anybody about them.

    would it still be countable as a ctr if someone clicks on a dead link ?
