    I am not too family with how affiliate networks track affiliate. do they get their statistics from your landing page or from the offer page from your link?

    also, with rebill cc stuff if i am referring traffic to the offer page and it converts do i have to worry about high conversions or is that only with surveys and email submits? thanks

    Tracking works by putting a pixel on the page which is the page that fires the conversion.

    In other words, for example, if you have an email submit that converts after the first page, on the second page, you can put an 'image file' which is 1x1 size on it. The point of that is because using a coding language such as PHP, you can make your own GIF image that when executed, will track certain information of the client such as their IP address and time the pixel was executed.
