Can you explain what the means exactly? Does it mean that you won't have a link that just says something like "We're having a sale" and that links to the home page?
Or do you mean when a sites is having a sale, you take the links down since your commission is reduced (on account of the prices being reduced)?
I really want permanent links to product pages, not expiring promotional links to special deals. Sales are fine, but I manage links manually by design and am not interested in changing those regularly. I particularly didn't like when I recently found that a merchant who was the exclusive source for a product had no direct link capabilities, just a bunch of general banners and sales linking to home or section pages. I want to link directly to specific products.
Could you tell me in your opinion how long is "long duration"? Are we talking days, weeks, months? (I know it's only your opinion, but I would love to hear it.)
It's a matter of the longer, the better, moderated by other factors. Too short can cause me to look further for a better source, or in some cases, skip the idea and just move on to another category. I've never done 0d. I do 1d regularly at that big bookstore because they do a great job in so many other areas. I expect longer from lesser-known sources.
