Direct Link Tracking - Advantages of Direct Link Tracking
Direct Link Tracking allows affiliates to link directly to your site without the need for an affiliate link.
This is a major incentive for your affiliates, and may help earn you more money.
If a visitor recognizes an affiliate link whilst on an affiliate’s site, they’ll know the affiliate will earn a commission if they click that link and purchase your product. In some instances, an affiliate link may make a visitor skeptical of your site content, and they won’t click the link. A potential customer turned off by an affiliate link could mean a missed sale for you (and a missed commission for your affiliate).
By using Direct Link Tracking, visitors will be completely unaware of any affiliate links, greatly increasing the chance of clicking a link to your site and going on to complete a purchase. You’ll be happy because you get more sales, and your affiliates will be happy because they earn more commission.
An increased opportunity for more sales
Visitors won’t know they are clicking on affiliate links.
Happier and more motivated affiliates
Since there’s no affiliate link, affiliates have a higher chance of earning a commission, and they’ll work harder to get it. Visitors can’t copy and paste the link into a new window and remove their tracking parameters, because there are none!
Links to your site do not contain any affiliate parameters, so they will be more SEO-friendly.
