    Just checked my links from the feed and the PSC and everything looks good. Of course, this is a few hours after the first report of a problem too.

    I tried setting my links up using a php redirect script, but the shoes.com site doesn't like that to well.

    what i was referring to are standard CJ banner and text links (not datafeed) with the destination url changed.

    even though the pasted destination url is still the same as the one shoes.com is currently using, clicking on the CJ link results in a "page not found" message.

    instead of simply redirecting to the destination page, the link revises the destination url itself.

    How can you tell if its tracking correctly?

    I have put in an email to shoes.com with no return yet (5 days ago).

    I have a feeling my links may not be tracking either.

    links that were not url-redirected are going to their intended pages alright, so it's just the url-redirect.

    i suspect this has more to do with cj.

    whether the links (working or not working) are tracking or not, i don't know. all i know is that shoes.com was a major seller for me when i started my site. now it's not.

    Hello waytogo,

    If you sent an email to Brook Schaaf, he is no longer managing the program. I have taken over management of the Shoes.com affiliate program.

    Please email me the exact url(s) and problem(s) you are having, and I will take a look at it!

    Todd, thanks! I'll send you an email today. In the meantime, try creating a text link with a redirected url.



    When you click on the link, the following code is being added at the end of the url, and which I think is the reason for the "page not found" message.

    &PartnerId%3DCJ



    --- Here's the page not found message ---

    We're Sorry

    The page you requested can't be accessed right now, or it no longer exists. If you want to let us know about it, please visit the contact us page by clicking here.

    Otherwise, standby 10 seconds and we will redirect you to the shoes.com home page.

    You can also click here to return to the previous page.

    Limey,

    I have not received an email from you? Did it bounce?

    Please post an example link (that is having this problem) in this forum, and I will take a look at it here...

    I'll send you a pm..Affiliates tend not to post links to their sites in the open forum.

    I emailed Todd the other day (all the banners on our site were changed externally to their Saturday Sales event) and I rec'd several prompt responses and the problem was fixed.

    Welcome to our world, Todd and wish you luck at Shoes.com

    Todd, here's a sample link that doesn't work. (for the purpose of this post, I edited the PID. The domain name on the other hand was replaced by ABW)

    I tested a bunch of different links...

    They all come up as partnerid=CJ.

    Is it supposed to be this way? The little red tracking image in the lower left hand corner shows partnerid=CJ also.

    This is likely the explanation for the immediate drop in sales and loss of tracking.

    Whats up in getting this fixed?

    The url I am using is different than the one above, however same result.

    thanks.

    The "partnerid=cj" should not effect proper tracking, and yes, that is meant to be there.

    I am currently communicating with CJ to see what the problem is here...

    Same exact data mining conversion/click killing application that made TigerDirect's commission go into a tailspin since last Holiday season.

    Every page of Shoes.com has the same culpret whacking the CJ tracking cookie when it redirects all page traffic to a seperate server for DNA shopper habit disection.....

    Everyone,

    CJ has advised that you contact their Client Services department if you need help with this issue. If you explain the problem to CJ directly, they can easily move forward with trying to diagnose the problem and implement a solution.

    The CJ Client Services department can be
    reached via email through the "Contact Us" link of your account manager or by phone at 800-761-1072.

    Regards,

    Todd

    I see what is wrong with that link: there is a question mark missing after .asp The correct link should be:

    http://www.shoes.com/shop/kids.asp?&PartnerId%3DCJ

    or

    http://www.shoes.com/shop/kids.asp?PartnerId%3DCJ

    i think you're right.

    the problem is not the CJ-generated code itself. it's the resulting landing page (the example i gave) after you clicked the link. the cj code itself only ends at .asp
