    Are URL redirects acceptable in place of the "shortest available code" for use in email newsletters?
    Example: mydomain.com/link# (or a pointer subdomain)
    instead of: http://www.shareasale.com/r.cfm?B=XXXX&U=XXXXX&M=XXXX
    At least for me, it is easier to type this way, and I have also found that many AOL users are perplexed by long/awkward affiliate links in their email.

    im not sure exactly, between two things, what you are referring to..but i think i have a guess..so ill answer both.

    1. on url redirects, the parameter urllink= can be used in any link to redirect to a specific page...

    .....r.cfm?m=xxxx&u=xxxx&b=xxxx&urllink=thepagetogoto

    2. if you are talking about using redirect on your own site, to point to shareasale.comlinks, that is fine...just make sure that the redirects go correctly to the shareasale.com link and all will work fine.
