Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 22.214.171.124
The company's welcome email contained a link to a CJ page where it appends my PID and their AID to one of CJ's tracking/forwarding domains and spits out some HTML (a link and a 1x1 pixel).
The company said all I have to do is add "&url=" and then the url of any page on their site, and it will be tracked properly.
I noticed, however, that the link with my PID & their AID also has a 1 pixel by 1 pixel gif that goes with it. This gif also has my PID and their AID in it. I'm just curious if I need to add the "&url=" to the name of this pixel as well, or if I should leave it alone (meaning it would be the same for every product). It appears to be a "fake" pixel, as I can name it anything I want and it displays properly (some .htaccess voodoo no doubt).
I tried asking the company but they said I didn't need to update the name of the gif - just the link. CJ hasn't responded to my requests, and I'd just like to make sure I don't deliver commission-free sales to the company.
Does anybody have experience using this kind of link?
They just said to replace the number after "PID-" with my PID. Is this a scam or will CJ be able to track any sales even without the AID number or a beacon gif?
