    Can somebody breakdown this link to emplane what is going on:

    esd.element5/html?affiliateid=00000000&publisherid=00000&target=http%3A%2F%2F product URL

    I'm just trying to get my head around an adwords account that I have inherited. I want to link directly to the product landing page (I have replaced that with product URL at the end and removed my aff ID) would it be enough to place the product landing page URL at the end of this? and would it still place the cookie?

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Most of the time, you should be able to get the answer from your affiliate/cpa network. If links aren't automated, there's at least an explanation.
    Also, if your affiliate side has tracking (why would you even consider working with something that doesn't have tracking), you can see if the cookie is being placed, and clicks from your AdWords campaign are counted.
