    Hi,

    I would like to know how does CJ actually manage to track the impression of the link when all I need to do is to paste the html link on the page.

    In addition, if I cloak my link, say
    hxxp://www.myprod.com/product/abc
    and sent to
    hxxp://www.cj.com/aff-id

    Wouldn't it be my CTR be 100% because the page may be displayed many times but only when it's click, the stats will capture it?

    If this is the case, will CJ actually take action against account with such CTR?

    Thanks for any advice.

    you can ask the network you are with within cj if you can alter there links. if its so you use a meta refresh you can tell them you dont like the long URL in the loading bar and you have found it puts of users clicking your links and you will have a better conversion rate if you change it to something like http://www.mydomain.com/dell.php or wateva. they usually say this is ok.

    oh ....

    Do you mean I have to use the exact link they provide?
    I have never did so before.

    I simply take the ugly link and cloak and place it in my sales page.
    But, of course, my sale was rather pathetic, so maybe they can't be bother with a few hundred bucks account.

    Will I get kicked out if I continue to do it this way?

    Thanks.
