    Setting up Affedit with CJ - Question

    Hi,

    I am using affedit to track my conversions. I am editing the JavaScript network rule for the CJ link and wanted to make sure I was doing this correctly (I don't want CJ to not recognize my referrals). I was hoping someone with more experience could help direct me. Here is what I was thinking...

    The CJ link I have looks like this:

    HTML Code:
    <a href="http://www.kqzyfj.com/click-#####-####">
    So I was going to change the JavaScript network rule to look like this:

    HTML Code:
    // cj  
    else if (h.indexOf('kqzyfj.com') != -1)
      return h.replace('click-','click-'+ref_id+'-');
    But I'm not sure if that will mess up my referral and make me miss my commission. Here is the example they give for Commission Junction...

    HTML Code:
    // cj  
    else if (h.indexOf('kqzyfj.com') != -1)
      return h.replace('SID=','SID='+ref_id+'_');
    Unfortunately, that is not how my link looks. If anyone with some experience could help direct me I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you,

    Jason

    Why don't you use Google Analytics to track your "click throughs", you won't be able to track your conversions if your code isn't placed on the site the link leads to, you can only track out going links.

    I would like to try affedit. I like the idea of having a backend with this information in it (without having to do extra work to load data). It allows me to mine my performance database for valuable information.

    I'm just curious if someone with experience knows for sure how to set it up. If not, I will just use trial and error to make sure my affiliate ID is working correctly.
