Has anyone tried advertising CJ products. If you use the link do you still get credit for the sales? I know CJ is not very clear about this issue.

yes and yes
you should check terms of any advertiser though- some do not allow this type of ad. I would encourage you to make good use of the SIDs if you go this path so that you know what is successful

Yea you can do OK with CJ/Linkshare etc.. and AdWords. Only problem is lots of merchants just have a few creatives and its tough to set things up so you know what keywords are pulling sales.

Thanks. I am going to try them. Just wanted to make sure I would get credit for the click thrus just using the url [qksrv.net...] instead of the whole bit.

You shouldn't have any problems getting credit for click throughs if you just use the URL. It probably makes CTRs for creatives and even EPC for creatives meaningless when you need to link to a specific landing page for a specific keyword and the only thing in the merchants list of ads that goes there is a banner.
