Can I Modify The Anchor Text Used In The CJ Affiliate Links?

Discussion in 'Commission Junction' started by bad_bob00, Jun 17, 2007.

    Hi there,

    I want to refer people to join a certain website just from a simple text link, but I don't want to use the exact same style of text-links for these sites in CJ.com. Am I allowed to modify the anchor text to whatever I like? Or will this affect the tracking of the sign ups?

    Thanks for any help.

    Anchor text is just text. Its modification will not affect the tracking of your link. Alter the text as you please.

    Yes. It won't affect tracking or anything else.

    Fiddling with the anchor text doesn't matter, but if you want to track impressions, you'll need to leave the 1x1 pixel image included in the "cut and paste" code.

    That is for PPC bidding. They dont want you to bid on their trade marks. Normally, they wont mind what you put on your website.
