    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'"

    Others are using an image hosted on their own site and setting a redirect tied to the image after the article is approved. Also some are saying to post 15 to 20 articles that aren't so pitchy and then your articles may not be scrutinized so much.

    Here's some code for setting a redirect to an image hosted on your site:
