I know you can select "for use in email"
for use in email
hide tracking code in link
Then I tried using the first part of the code starting with [...............and...] stopped at the long number (right before "target="_top etc. etc.)
I copy and pasted in my browser and it took me to the correct page but I wonder if I did it right as far as tracking with my affiliate number.
Does any body do this that can guide me along?

I also have another cj merchant that I want to use and they do mention ppc rules only to not use their name but encourages you to bid on their item names. Their "keyword link" section is active and I just tried it. Thanks for the heads up on the enabled search marketing. I went through the steps and it gave me a long link. I put it in my browser and it took me to the home page. I guess we put this long link as our url destination. Right? This is my first time trying the keyword link at CJ. I don't really get how it works. If you change the keyword does it take you to a different page on the merchant's site? It ends in =Keywords%3A+(the word for the merchants type of item) Does it only take you to the home page?
You also mention "ONLY use keyword links to direct traffic from MSN" Couldn't you use the email link like in my original question especially for those merchants who do not have PPC rules?
Mikeog: after I encrypted and used that link...it did go to the correct landing page and I saw the hits in my stats the next day so I would think my pid got in ok, right?
A big thanks to both of you for taking the time to reply!
As for your display URL, merchants are specific about that as well, so get reading.
Unfortunately, most times we are stuck with an ugly URL that may cause people not to click.
Maybe someone can help in this regard?
As it is, CJ's UI is about as incomprehensible as they come.
Almost as bad as adCenter.
Put the 2 together, and it's a long bumpy ride trying to do anything.
