    Linkshare Links go to ODD error page
    Normal links and google links work fine

    But if I click a LS link to this merchant, I get:

    Please accept our apologies.

    The page you are trying to reach is temporarily unavailable. We are performing a number of enhancements to improve your gift shopping experience, so check back soon.

    If you prefer to speak with a representative or place an order, please contact our customer service department. They may be reached by calling toll free: 1-866...

    If they are making "enhancements", shouldn't ALL links not work - not just the Linkshare links??

    Thanks,

    Maybe this has something to do with a new test of a LS updated beta tracking system. It involves taking out all the thrill of shopping the merchants site by forcing the referred shopper to call the Super Affiliates 800# to get a telemarketer to guide the shopper to working URLs. Basically a Live Help parasite on steroids.... LOL.

    Simple to find this one Kelli. Just look at the network reports for the merchant who hasn't recoreded a sale in a few days.

    This happened at about 3am Vegas time - so my guess is they WERE perfoming some kind of enhancement in the wee hours - just odd that it was only for aff links - but it's fixed now

    Nice. Really. Does make you wonder why just the LS links wouldn't work. Any idea what the "enhancement" was? Adding a big, flashing, 1-800 number to all pages perhaps?

    Yes, very odd (and disturbing) that only the LS links were the ones involved.

    It certainly sounds like a merchant issue to me.
