    Target Product Links Erratic
    I am using the Target product feed, at least until the BYO links are available.
    When checking some published links I discovered some erratic results. Fifty percent or more, the click defaults to the Target home page, and only sometimes goes to the product page. Please check some of your links and see if you get the same results, you have to click a few times.

    Thanks
    Tami

    I picked up a new datafeed today and the first product I try to set up goes to the homepage. I had a datafeed from early last week and pulled several products from it and as far as I can tell, they are all going to the right product page.

    Hello,

    If Target stops sending us a product, we'll send that product link to the homepage to avoid sending users to error pages.

    Please provide specific examples to affiliateATdoubleclick.com and we will investigate further if you feel there is an issue.

    Feel free to put to my attention.

    Thank you,

    Jamie Ross
    Manager, Affiliate Customer Support Manager

    This has been a problem since before Performics. The root of the problem is apparently Amazon who doesn't exclude out of stock products a lot of the time. This feed has been wrought with problems for years.

    At least you could make the links through linkshare. Does the do-it-yourself build your own links method described in this forum work for Target?

    In a word, No.
