Links and Pixels

What exactly is the link doing?

First and foremost, the purpose of the link is to track traffic to the landing page by affiliate. This is why every affiliate in your system has a unique link for them for every campaign. In order for us to track, this link has to be the one that is used to drive traffic to the landing page.

Every time an affiliate link is clicked, four things happen:

  • We create a click in the system
  • We drop a tracking cookie on the browser
  • We create a hit ID for that user
  • We redirect the link to the advertiser's landing page link you have assigned in the campaign that was set up.
