    Noob ? About AdWords
    Hi everyone, I have searched for and cannot find an answer (at least what I was hoping for) in these forums and Google Adwords help/forum. Since I'm new to LinkShare, I was curious about this: When placing a URL in AdWords, I didn't want to include the <IMG src blah, blah> for obvious reasons. I simply used the URL up through my code minus the <a href=". I've checked the ads and they go where I want them, however here are the questions...

    1. Is this okay to do since the code for link says "place as appears"?
    2. Google AdWords shows clicks but LinkShare doesn't - is that due to some tracking code in the <IMG src>?
    3. WHEN I make a sale, will it show up even if the clicks don't?

    Thanks for any help!

    Eh, don't worry about it. Looks like there must be some kind of wait before they send stats. Just checked and all 3 programs show the clickthroughs...just not "impressions".

    Just to warn you, and it may take a while, but be prepared for the "no direct to merchant ppc" letter from Linkshare.
