Email Links


Email links are text links with a different tracking variable to enable you to analyze their performance separately. We do not detect if you actually placed the link in an email.

Creating Email Links

You can create an email link from a text link directly in the Publisher Dashboard. When viewing an advertiser’s text link, open the Link options drawer and set the Link type to “Email link." Doing so will only change the &type= value in the link code. This value indicates the link type:

  • &type=3 indicates a text link
  • &type=1 indicates an email link

To use the email link in an HTML email, click the Copy link code button and paste the link code into the HTML as you would for an ordinary web page.

Changing the Copy

You can customize the hyperlinked text displayed for both text and email links. To do so, you need only alter the text in the center portion of the code. For example, a text link has a link code similar to:

<a href="[11-digitcode]&offerid=xxxx& type=3&subid=0">Merchant Name </a><IMG border=0 width=1 height=1 src="[11-digitcode]&&bids=xxxx&type=3&subid=0">


The hyperlinked text will appear as it is in the code, for our example: Merchant Name. If you would like to change it to read, Shop at Merchant Name Today, you need only replace the "Merchant Name" in the code with the new text. Your new code will appear as:
<a href="[11-digitcode]&offerid=xxxx& type=3&subid=0">Shop at Merchant Name Today! </a><IMG border=0 width=1 height=1 src= "[11-digitcode]&&bids=xxxx&type=3&subid=0">
