    How to understand cj links?
    Hi,

    I am wondering whether it is possible to generate links without logging into my cj account. Does anyone have a short answer?

    Thanks

    Yes! - But, you must pay 99¢ for the how-to do that, ebook!

    Btw, I like your site!

    You're right webworker,

    I was being mischievous when I made that post.

    Sorry dealinstyle,

    That was a sick joke, there's no 99 cents ebook, I just made that up, you can find almost any affliate marketing info on ABW, for free.

    I think it depends on the merchant and how the link will be interpreted by their site as to the destination page to show, some are pretty straightforwards, others not.

    I found one of the most useful ways to do this whan I was new to it was to find a text link where there were "advanced options" with a "Destination URL" option. You then put in the landing page you want and it will build the link for you. Not all merchants have this however and not all links have it, so you may need to search a bit within a merchants links first.

    Otherwise it's a case of study the links to a few pages side by side and dissect them as to which bit does what, some have a "url=....." part on the end when the first part gives the affiliate and merchant ID with the bit after the = being the landing page, so you can specify quite easily.

    Make sure you check they work however! it may be worth running it past the merchant before you start to build loads of them.

    If you want to be sure your links will track, get them from the account manager. I've seen many an affiliate mess up by excluding critical parameters that some merchants require in the url in order for sales to track.
