    The best way of doing it is to quit CJ, and:
    SEMrush
    a) either sign up with the same merchants on other networks, where they happen to have multiple affiliate programs (many of them do)

    b) or where you can't find the same merchant on another network, just find a similar one instead.

    Problem solved!

    New links are now live if you want to check them out and see how bad they are.

    And they are bad....

    I can't believe they would implement the links by embedding a form in the page. What idiots. I guess they don't care about ASP.NET web sites.

    One of my top merchants has asked me to add a new link of their products on my site. Since it is the first day that CJ launching their JavaScript links, I thought it might be a good time to try it out...not only it came out with a stupid looking and not match my existing page design at all but a big wasting of my time. It took me about 20 minutes just to add ONE link because the JavaScript link couldn't be previewed with my site building software, I have to publish the page and see how it looks like, and if I don't like it, make a change and publish again... Finally I gave up and used the Legacy Link which still available for now.
    What a bad bad experience:mad:

    CJ seems to be determined to have their merchants products on as few web pages as possible!

    I tried the javascript links and don't see it working at all. Click on the stupid link and nothing happened. Changed it back to legacy ones and it is ok.

    Went to CJ this morning planning to add some links from advertisers into my newer directory & ran across the javascript links being pushed at me. I decided not to add links but to start looking for other providers instead to replace CJ & I signed the petition!

    I've just tried the new Javascript links - seems to work ok in IE, but clicking on the link in Firefox does nothing.

    Nice move CJ.

    No way that cj sticks with that...
    I can't use any of their links in my blog posts anymore. Everyone is pissed off they have to change it or will see many publishers go.

    I just tried this also on a single page within my site that it still legacy link based, the banners were ok, but js text links refused to work in Firefox for me. Of course I quickly changed back to the legacy links.

    Google's timing to publicize their CPA network is impeccable. Don't know if it was intentional though.
