FAQ

What happens if for some reason the We Can Track service goes down, will my links break?

We have developed a fallback to the original link for these situations.

This is a rare occurrence, but it could happen if the redirect is being done on the client-side or if the redirect plugin is not using the WordPress redirect function.
Not to worry, we’d be happy to help you. Just contact us at support@wecantrack.com with information about your redirection plugin and other relevant information and we’ll check for possible solutions.

Reviews

February 1, 2021
I have been an affiliate marketeers for 7-8 years. + This has some major pros like; freedom, additional income, opportunities and creativity. - But it also has some major cons like; being depending from 1 traffic source. And all tools seem to be build for advertisers/webshops which causes tracking issues. For this reason I started to explore drop shipping. Which turned out to add a lot extra things to worry about. Like; ease of being copied, product qualities, returns and customers service. Last year I discovered We Can Track which opened up a whole new world of opportunities. Before I only did affiliate marketing with SEO. And now with We Can Track I could optimize my SEO pages based on real revenues. I also started to use my drop shipping skills in Google Ads and Facebook Ads to start promoting my best converting pages with PPC campaigns. After 3 months of testing I decided to shift my focus back to affiliate marketing. I even put my freelance work on-hold to focus more on the affiliate domains, pages and campaigns i'm running.
