I just bought Pretty Link Pro yesterday, and never tried the Lite first; it was the first time I looked at the program and bought it right away when I saw that it's been what I've been looking for. It looks great!
I'm a Commission Junction affiliate, and when I grab a link from their site it has the following checkoffs:
Encrypt link? Yes or No
Set link to open a new browser window? Yes or No
Hide tracking code in link? Yes or No
SID _____ (Fill in if you want to give it a code for your purposes)
I am not sure how I should answer the questions when using Pretty Link Pro. I am fairly new to affiliate marketing also, so I want to be careful not to break any rules (especially on CJ). I also don't want to upset or slow down Google by incorrect links.
Can you please help me get started with PLP and suggest how I should answer the above? I don't know if by saying Yes to encrypt the link, if this would be double encrypting in PLP. Same with hiding the tracking code.
Also, can you please explain what 'Parameter forwarding' means and give me a little example of how you use it? I think it relates to my question above and would like to understand it so I know how to use it in PLP.
Thank you for your help,
