    I don't have/use AOL, but I was at a friend's the other day who has AOL.

    I typed a CJ merchant's (RideGear.com) URL directly into the AOL URL location box, then the site opened under "Shop@AOL" frame!

    I don't know what kind of arrangements, it sure looked like the refferral was AOL not somebody else. I haven't tried it through an affiliate link, though.

    Anybody has any experience with it?

    Has AOL gone the TopMoxie route for redirecting & monitizing URL address bar traffic?

    I have Cable but also have AOL. I just typed that address into the address bar on aol and I did not get the Shop@AOL" frame. I use Aol 5.0 When I get a chance I will check it out on my daughters computeras she uses a different version.

    No, they don't do this. This was brought up about 4 months ago

    On the thread you gave link to, I couldn't see any answer to whether AOL shows up as a referral on the affiliate links.

    How do you know they don't do this?

    AOL may not be overwriting links because they don't work through affiliate networks, but they may be showing up as the referral of a sale, at the merchant's end. We don't know this.
