    For starters -

    Does Link Locater Direct make Merchandiser obsolete?

    Similar concept, but totally different selection of links.

    Merchandiser is for product links. For instance, a specific necklace at Overstock.com.

    Link Locator Direct is for home page, promotional text, and promotional banner links. For instance, a banner for the monthly coupon at Overstock.com.

    My biggest complaint with Link Locator Direct is that you only get links in about six specified categories. I'd like to get all text and banner links, whether they're in one of those categories or not.

    Michael,

    How long did it take for you to get setup with LLD? I'm awaiting a response from LinkShare... They said they never received my original email, so its been a couple weeks now.

    Also, my main question is do you have to make calls to the GetMerchantLinks query using the MID (Merchant ID) or can you use the Merchant Name?

    Thanks.

    (Matt- check out the Resource Center in LinkShare, there is a good amount of information about the service (see here)

    I've never used GetMerchantLinks. I use GetAllLinks and just load everything into a database.

    Michael,

    I get an out of memory error (from LinkShare's end, I believe) saying that the data size was around 75MB and the data doesn't come accross.

    I say I think it's on LinkShare's end because my bandwidth usage doesn't reflect it.

    Thanks for any help,
    Chris

    Chris,
    I talked to our tech team and they are not aware of any problems with Link Locator Direct. Can you please send an email to linklocatordirect@linkshare.com with your username and details on the error message you are getting.
