    PPC/eBay question
    Hi!

    I'm planning on doing some PPC marketing for eBay and have one question;

    Is it OK to redirect the users from google to my server, and then redirect from there to eBay?

    The user won't notice the redirection since it done right away, but I will be able to track everything with my own scripts.

    Does eBay/CJ ollow this kind of redirection??

    Thanks a lot!

    Bobby

    Just don't bid on the word "ebay" or any variation and there are a few others that will get your account nixed ASAP. I would review the eBay affil site before buying any adwords.

    Well let me put it this way. A UK affiliate owns the link [A site owned by Terry] and it redirects and it has for a long time... so roll your dice. I bet they make a TON on that one.

    [that seems like a public "outing" to me]

    CJ and Ebay may allow redirects from your server, but AdWords certainly won't. Specifically, you'll be breaching the rules on:

    Redirect URLs: Ads that contain Display URLs that automatically redirect to the parent company.

    or maybe
    Display URL Must be Accurate
    Your Display URL must accurately reflect the URL of your website.

    but certainly:
    Working Back Button
    Links to your website must allow users to return to the Google search results page or ad network by clicking once on the browser's Back button.

    Still, you could give it a go. Just don't bet the farm on making loads from AdWords this way

    Does that count as a "forced click" ?
