    Here's how your URL would look:

    http://www.qksrv.net/click-xxxxx-xxx...e.com/whatever

    append ?url= after the ad id and that's the redirect parameter.

    About_Face,
    I'm not sure if what you’re asking for exists. I don't believe that the "landing page" is stored in CJ. The advertiser determines the Landing page.
    Some advertisers have "redirectable" links. With redirectable links you can choose the page you wish to direct traffic to and add it to the link code.
    I wish all advertisers had redirectable links but it seem that some only want publishers to send traffic to the home page.

    I hope that this answers you question.

    CDC: Any link can be redirected. Though the reason some advertisers do not enable redirection is because they require certain parameters to be included in order for everything to work correctly. So redirecting links that are not redirect enabled, is an at-your-own-risk deal.

    Akiva and CDC,

    Thanks for the feedback. I understand alot of clients want certain URL parameters to be included to ensure proper tracking. I will be sure to test and determine what they are before using the redirect parameter.

    Thanks

    Redirecting to internal pages without the merchant knowing it can sometimes be risky. If they move the page, your link is now broken. If they don't run a custom 404, your traffic might get an error and might give up before getting to the destination.

    If you are doing it for a product link, it might be safer to redirect to a product category, i.e. Sony TV's, rather than to a specific model. The model might get replaced, but the category probably would not go away.

    Just my opinion...
