Default Copeac and contextual

I am browsing through Copeac to create a campaign.

I am blocked when choosing an ad being contextual
To date i cant find any contextual ad permisions after searching several categories

Failing that I then ticked contextual in the box "banner types" which has several options
Nothing there either!

I realise I am missing a step somewhere - but cant see where.

The Video shows coach using copeac in the auto catergory and the permission for contextual comes up easily -

Whats happening ?

Regards Lennie G

They do offer contextual, but due to fraud they have removed all links for general viewing. Talk to your affiliate manager and he/she can help you with finding offers that support contextual.

I just talked to my rep at Copeac about this very issue. I thought I was blind cause I couldn't find any contextual links anywhere.

He told me to just use the very last link, the "text" link. It's the same one I used to use for PPC.

I was told they are 2 different links.

You can use a text link as a replacement for a contextual link, but you still need to make sure the merchant allows contextual advertising. Basically, the text link is a handy thing to use if your aff. manager has confirmed the offer supports contextual, but just hasn't supplied you with any links for it.

I wouldn't run the text link in place of the contextual one, you might get in trouble for that. Direct track networks have to pay for bandwidth and contextual is treated differently. PLUS you're really messing up their overall epc numbers for the offer if you send contextual to the regular links.

Hey guys, I'm just telling you what my AM at Copeac told me. I got in contact with him again b/c of this thread.

And it wasn't just at Copeac. I've had several other networks tell me that using a plain ole text link is fine. Don't know what else we could do because even when an offer says it allows Contextual traffic there is no link. And Copeac is not the only network not showing me contextual links for ANY offer.

Of course Contextual Traffic has to be ALLOWED for the offer, so make sure you look at the Campaign Description.

Yeah, my aff. manager told me I could use the text links as well, but I think that's just because they're being lazy and not wanting to compile the list for you. Coach makes a good point about screwing up the epc. Really, it should be the aff. managers getting in trouble for even suggesting it in the first place.

I can tell you that the network would be pissed if he found out his affiliate managers were encouraging usage of the regular links. But if they said it's ok and you do it, make sure you have record of it for when they try to throw you under the bus in the future.
