Links with Pixel Image Tracking (2 posts)

    I am trying to add an affiliate link that requires a pixel image tag to be associated with it.
    For example: LinkText
    <img src="http://www.pixeltrackingcode.com" border="0" width="1" height="1">

    How do I add the image source for the URL? It is an invisible pixel, so I can't simply add it to the "Image URI".

    When you're on your affiliate program, you have to get your link first, all the code is there. A tracking pixel sounds like LinkShare to me, though it could be B&N, Amazon, etc. If it's LinkShare, choose the "Get Links" tab, select your program, find the banner you like, copy the code under it, and paste it somewhere in your index.php file in between <div> </div> tags. If the program has selected to allow you to use a 1 pixel image with their banner, then the appropriate pixel image code will all ready be with the ad code. If they haven't, then you could certainly add another banner's 1 pixel image to your current ad code, but it won't track.
