    Changing destination url
    This is probably a stupid question but how do you change the destination url in a html link. The help section says there's a box for this. But I'm dammed if I can see it. Is there a variable &url=blahblah like in other networks which I can manually apply. Cheers.

    Not all merchants have it available. I just tried getting a Zappos text link and there is a box: Destination URL. Now if you try with E.T. Wright, there is no box.

    Let's say you're getting targetted traffic, you might want to send them to the page that matches their query. Let's say you're getting traffic for Tracy McGrady Shoes. You could send them to the home page or you can have that traffic going to a page on the shoe site selling Tracy McGrady shoes. There might be a special section on the site that they don't have any links for. If they enabled the ability to change the destination url, you now have a way to link to it. Many reasons.
