    Can you use afsrc=1 on CJ links and/or is it Necessary?

    Is so will simply using something like this work fine and not affect tracking?:

    "afsrc=1" after a CJ link does not work and not needed. Complaint(!) BHOs are supposed to see the domains like qksrv and leave them alone. "afsrc=1" is only needed if you use server-side redirect (e.g http://www.yourdomain.com/merchantpage.asp?pageno=2). Then the link will be http://www.yourdomain.com/merchantpa...geno=2&afsrc=1.

    Thanks you.

    Is it necessary to remove that code from a few CJ links I added it to or does it not matter one way or another?

    Is it ok on Amazon links??

    IMHO, I do not think having afsrc=1 will cause any problem for CJ links to work. But to be frank, I have not tested it myself.

    Amazon is probably not part of this "afsrc=1" collaboration. They do not knowingly work with any BHO.

    Don't change the code or you will not be paid.

    Appending the Afsrc=1 is not (allegedly) required for CJ links (I state CJ specific because of where this thread is posted) unless you used a server side redirects ... adding the code (which was last on the networks list of priority [told to me by a parasite]) is preferential so that once a parasite is forced to comply with such link types you'll be safe and not need to recode your pages.
