Why Does Jon not strip out affiliate referral ID's?
« on: October 22, 2010, 10:33:02 AM »
Why is it that for all of Jon's products, he does not strip out the Paydotcom affiliate referral ID after landing on a link?

I even submitted a support ticket, and got no satisfactory answer, only that "they are not doing that", which is really irritating. 

The urls leave this code after the domain landing page, leaving the link open to ridicule by others as an obvious affiliate link, or worse, open to commission theft by someone inserting a different user id.

It's the primary reason why at least three people I know just won't promote his stuff as affiliates. They use it - they love it - but wont promote it because this looks really cheezy, like a schlocky Clickbank product. 

I've been in affiliate marketing a long time and this is one of the things everyone hates about most Clickbank merchants, that they're either too unskilled or simply too lazy to strip that out.

I'm more than a little disappointed to still see the same thing on ALL of Jons great products, and I KNOW it's not for lack of skill, or the fact that he's unaware of the importance, so what's the deal?
 
Jon, wont you reconsider and PLEASE pull those ID's out of your affiliate links?

I agree! There is a pretty simple fix for this but most people don't bother to help out their affiliates with good ground coverage. I see this a lot and it is irritating. But you know what is even worst? When you want to promote a product and so you check out the landing page and right there in big bold letters:

AFFLIATES EARN 50%!

I mean.. what the hell, right? I pass on knothead-promotions like that.  ::)
