    I remember reading a few posts about adding ****=1 at the end of some network links. I can't seem to find them. an anyone point me to that link again. I believe it has something to do with adding a tag at the end of some links to prevent cookies being overwritten?

    TIA!

    That's afsrc=1

    Here's the link to the search that brings up a lot of posts about it. I didn't look at all the individual posts because there are so many! But hopefully you can find what you are looking for, or someone can you give a link to a specific thread.

    Click here for lots of afsrc posts!

    FYI network links do not need afsrc=1. Only server side redirects.

    I must admit, I've never come to grips with when exactly afsrc is required.

    Surely, if the serverside redirect is local to the website's domain, if we are required to place afsrc on it to stop them from triggering, then there is a danger of them triggering on ANY click while a surfer is navigating around your website?

    Can someone PLEASE confirm/deny.

    Darn good question!

    From what I've seen from the TopMoxie, WurldMedia and ShopatHome Select products they only target the merchant urls - 1800 can target affiliate urls. So I'd assume that unless your domain is specifically targeted by these apps, you wouldn't need to add the afsrc=1 append for internal links.

    Doing lots of reading and still wondering how this effects my network links. Is there an exec summary or simple rules for when to use the tag?

    As Akiva stated, there is no need to append CJ, PFX or BF direct links with it.

    1800 doesn't fall under any of the networks terms does it? It not an affiliate, it's customers maybe affiliates? Or merchants?

    180 is classified as a "non-compliant technology provider" (by the networks - but that doesn't mean that that don't allow them! ).
