Ok, I ended my trial, I put a few of the LMI links on my pages.
Not to bad so far but most of my sites depend on sending a customer to a specific page, so for 98% of my target clicks this will not work.
Also I am a frontpage user and it makes it VERY difficult to design a page when you do not know what the out come will be in design mode. I could not see where the links were unless I jumped in and out of Preview mode. I have quite a few sites and this feature or lack there of is bothersome.
One Good point for the few LMI links I used as banners, I didn't see any difference in load time. But keep in mind I said banners and I only place one of these per page.
Over all I would be pleased if CJ would keep both. I like the Idea of the banners changing automaticaly. However I also need the flexablity of the Legacy links. I know $50,000 - $100,000 is small fry but in the end it all adds up.
That's my experience with the LMI

I've stopped worrying about the LMI. Even though I do 3/4 of my business with CJ merchants.
I figure either:
-'4th party solutions will appear to make links workable. Along the lines of what GC and others do but different programming.
-Merchants will continue to add in-house programs or at different networks. Its already happening. Thanks CJ for allowing that.
-CJ will change their position to allow HTML links indefinitely.
If none of that happens, eat ramen noodles and keep trying to diversify.

I'd rather take the bull to the butcher. I'm not into bullfighting.

I've been placing the little bastards within DIV tags with width and height specified in the style attribute ... and replacing CJ merchants when there is a good alternative.
<div style="width: 120px; height: 60px;"> CJ's stinky little LMI code </div>
The fact that replacing an existing HTML link with an LMI link will drop revenue from an ad from 10% to 30% has really dampened my enthusiasm for CJ.

Ok so yesterday I took a few Fishes Recipes (part of my Loaves and Fishes section I am building) and added some of these New LMI linkies the Picture was good one of Salmon for sale at one of my merchants I built up a couple of pages with different Salmon recipes and uploaded them. I then took a peak. They all Left Justified even though I thought I had them well centered. (Bad boys) and they all went directly to the home page when I clicked on them Not to the Juicy Fishies on the Picture Was not a Happy Cook:gnome: [URL]www.gethsemenerose.com[/URL] :gnome: As for me and my SITE we shall serve the LORD!
