Affiliate link styles

Post Affiliate Pro is a flexible affiliate application that allows you to fully customize it to your needs. It supports a variety of affiliate link styles and you can easily choose the most suitable affiliate link style for your needs, with a single click.

Redirect links, formerly “Old style tracking” work like any other link. To create a click the link always points to a script in your Post Affiliate Pro installation folder including some affiliate variables of Post Affiliate Pro:

This script registers a click to an affiliate with the particular refid and a commission computed based on the campaign to which the banner identified by a_bid variable belongs.

When the click is saved, the target URL from this banner is used for redirection. So even if you click on a link like this:


finally you will end up at the destination URL (target URL) of the banner defined in the application and having the ID represented by the value of a_bid in the link you have clicked.

This type of affiliate link is not the best for SEO. For the best SEO use Anchor links or Direct links.

Google loves these kind of links, so your tracking will win with this style. The links look like this:

We still believe that the anchor links are more effective than the SEO links; however some merchants do not like the idea of having any parameters in the URL (including anchor), so these kinds of SEO links with Mod Rewrite are the only option for them.

Example of a link:
