February 8th, 2006, 05:49 PM #1XHTML and Encoding Character Entities in Links
Dear ABW members,
Is there any possibility that using character entities (ie, "&" instead of "&") in links could interfer with CJ sales tracking?
I wrote my site in XHTML and automatically changed the &'s to make the pages validate.
My site is relatively new, so I can't say definitively if my traffic is just too low to earn sales activity, but I haven't seen any sales since I began doing this, and I'm starting to worry.
Initially, I checked my CJ reports to be sure that entity-encoded links were tracking when I clicked on them, and they were, so I assumed sales would track as well.
Any comments on this matter would be much appreciated.

No. Changing & to & will not affect tracking.
Browser will automatically process the URL encoded string.
It has nothing to do with your sales.
Promote well and get the sales from your website.

Thank you! A sale just posted on one of the affected links, confirming that encoded entities are not affecting my CJ tracking.
