Default Going direct?

Anyone know if you can just dump your affiliate link in the adware network?

I noticed that they frame the landing page. Does that bust anything? Does all this have to go through your server?

Thanks,

- Mike

Why not? I don't get what the problem would be. More to the point, if there were a problem, I don't get how redirecting it through your own server would help.

Oh, the problem would be that. (see I don't know anything yet).. that the adware networks I've noticed frame our landing page offers when serving them. Well, I was wondering if that breaks those cookies.

Thanks for the help.

Two thoughts:

1. The cpa networks such as hydra, azoogle, primary, only use pixel tracking, not cookie tracking; iframes sometimes can break the pixel tracking, but I don't see how that could happen here, and I don't understand what you mean about framing.

2. More to the point, more traditional affiliate networks (CJ, Share-a-Sale) that do use cookies generally do not allow contextual since it creates a cookie-stuffing situation.

You can definitely go direct. No website needed.
