Affiliates get their linkcodes on the

Affiliate Link Code page. There are two types of link codes: encoded and unencoded. The difference is depicted in Figures 1.1, 1.1a, and 1.1b:

Figure 1.1 - Link Codes Explained
Figure 1.1a - Unencoded Link Codes Explained
Figure 1.1b - Unencoded Link Codes Explained - Default Campaign

As you can see, encoded linkcodes provide the most affiliate protection: the affiliate, campaign, program, and site information cannot be altered in the query string.

Redirecting to the Correct Page

When NATS turns a linkcode into a tour URL, it automatically appends a slash (/) to the end of barewords. You can prevent this by appending a question mark to the end of the URL. For example:

Tour URL Where Linkcodes Go
http://example.com/tour http://example.com/tour/?nats=natscode
http://example.com/tour? http://example.com/tour?nats=natscode

Qualified Link Codes

If there's a extra "t" in your linkcode, you probably grabbed the wrong link code from the top of the Sites edit page.

http://join.site.com/ttrack/<?=(!empty($_REQUEST['nats']) && !preg_match('/[\'\"<>()\\\+\[\]]/', $_REQUEST['nats']))?$_REQUEST['nats']:'MDowOjE'?>/page.html

The ttrack is used for qualified clicks; track is used for normal hits.
