Hey I have a couple of quick questions.

First, I have a flash site built using Moonfruit sitemaker and am unable to add html straight to my site. When I get some html code for a simple banner on commission junction, is it okay to cut the link part out after ahref=" and simply put that on my site and then upload the banner seperately and replicate what the html would look like. Would this link still track properly?

Also, how often and at what time are the Commission Juntion reports updated?

Thanks in advance guys!
John

look on the Get HTML page for "Advertiser allows URL redirects," if you see this you should be okay. However not all advertisers allow it.

All you really need to track is the click url from the tag generated on CJ (unless it's a more complex content link with parameters imbedded in form parameters).

So yes, you can pull the link apart and reassemble it. If you break it, however, you're going to lose sales and they're not going to be able to get them back for you. Test it. If you see clicks for your link in reports, then it's working.

Gabby's talking about something different. Some merchants allow you to deep-link to any page on their site by putting that url at the end of the click in a url= parameter. That's visible in the advanced options when getting a link. That's not really pertinent to your question here.

thanks a lot, that answers my original question perfectly.

just out of interest though, what does "image redirects" mean? i understand the "url redirect" term now thanks.

an image redirect allows you to reference a different image on an image link. Since the images served also register an impression, this allows you to link to a different image and still get the impression counted.

Much less useful than the url redirect.
