Most article directories have cracked down on direct affiliate links in articles. It doesn't matter if you shorten your URL's, either way if the resulting url ends in "?hop=AFFNICK" you'll get your article declined. A great way to stop this is to use this script. In an essence this script retrieves the clickbank cookie and then redirects you to the affiliates landing page without "?hop=AFFNICK". Without script: domain/landing-page/index.php?hop=AFFNICK With script: domain/landing-page/index.php And if the user purchases the product, you'll still get the commission. I didn't create this code, but it works perfectly. Script: hxxp://pastebin.com/3BsUpeB7 - Change where it says "youraffnick" to your clickbank affiliate nickname. - Save the code with the .cgi extension and upload to the cgi-bin on a webhost. To Use It: E.g. domain/cgi-bin/link.cgi?v=VENDORNICK OR domain/cgi-bin/link.cgi?v=VENDORNICK&a=ANOTHERAFFILIATENICK You can get the vendor name from the clickbank marketplace. Just find a product and click "Promote". In the new window look at the red bar at the top, it should say "Affiliate Program: Promote Products for 'AFFILIATENICKNAME'"
