    If You Don`t Know This, You Might Lose Your Commissions!

    Are you aware that using certain tools to protect your affiliate
    commissions might in fact cause you to lose them?

    Let me explain you how than can be and what you can do to
    protect yourself from commission loss...

    The other day a good marketing friend of mine, let's call her
    Eva, send me an email, telling me about a service that she
    believed me to be interested in... and in fact, I was.

    She wrote: "If you want to take a look, the link is:
    http://www.herdomain.com/mon"

    When I followed her URL, I noticed on that page, that her
    affiliate ID was missing on the main page, as well as on the
    order form page.

    Since I wanted her to get credit for this, I emailed Eva:

    "Your link will not earn you commissions as your affiliate ID
    doesn't show at http://www.companiesdomain.com.

    I recommend to use a forwarding link instead of placing the site
    into a frame."

    She answered me that it worked fine when she followed the link
    herself. How was that possible you ask? Very simple.

    When she originally got the affiliate link, she must have used
    the link one time directly and this way saved the cookie on her
    computer.

    So I replied to Eva:

    "I checked it again... if I visit their site through
    http://www.herdomain.com/mon, your ID is not shown anywhere.

    But if I visit it through
    http://www.companiesdomain.com/index.php?affiliateID=0210040924
    I can see your ID everywhere.

    In general... cookie based systems often have a problem if you
    place the site into a HTML frame on another domain."

    This time Eva replied to me:

    "Well that's got me stumped... I used Covert Affiliate to
    generate that URL and I just cleared my cookies and tried it
    and I do not see my affiliate codes on the main page..."

    I actually noticed that problem of promoting through a frame
    already quiet a while ago. Also e.g. when I use Mike's
    MyViralWebsite system or any other system that displays your
    affiliate URL inside a HTML frame... it's the same problem.

    The tricky part about it... some programs work if called through
    a frame (meaning: your affiliate ID will be used) and others
    don't.

    My rule of thumb is: If I don't see my affiliate ID on the other
    page, I will not use a HTML frame.

    But for the reason I described before, make sure that you delete
    you cookies before you give it a try!

    This is also the reason why I always use my own Add2it Go-To Pro
    tracking links whenever I promote another program.

    The Add2it Go-To Pro links look e.g. like this:

    http://www.add2it.com/go/to.pl?l=ListDotCom

    To make that shorter and easier, I created and uploaded another
    tiny script called see.pl. Now I can use an even shorter link:

    http://add2it.com/see.pl?ListDotCom

    The last part, the "ListDotCom", is what changes depending on
    what program I want to promote.

    The advantage... not only do you get stats on how many people
    click that link every month, it also simply forwards to the URL
    you want to promote, prevents this way the "frame" problem while
    still hiding the ugly long affiliate link and this way it REALLY
    protects your commission.
