    Anyone know why links got longer?
    I'm getting links that look like this now http://www.xxxxx.com/click-000000-00000000-000000000000

    Update to Link Formats: Freshness Token

    What is the Freshness Token?
    The Freshness Token ensures links are in line with the latest advertiser offers by adding a timestamp when the offer is created or updated.

    Now, a link with the freshness token included looks like this:
    a) click-pid-aid-TOKEN
    b) image-pid-aid-TOKEN

    Example token: http://www.cjurl.com/click-7676590-1...-1400697119000

    Creative that uses forms or BUYURLs in feeds might appear like this: "input type=hidden token=xxxxxx"

    The new special deeplink format has not changed.

    The overwhelming majority of clients will not be affected. If you are a publisher who is modifying links, you should be aware of the link format changes listed above. The addition of the token will have zero impact on current links.

    Thanks Convergence for the info. I was wondering about the same thing. I must have missed the announcement.

    That's good to know. At least I don't need to worry about broken links somewhere...

    I bet you can just delete that last portion.
