    The href= shows this: “http://www.ultimatebet.com”

    And the image source shows this: “http://affiliates.ultimatebet.com/banners/bnrimg.php?id=13&cmpgn_id=745&prdct_id=1”

    I am being told by Diego at the UB affiliate program that this code will track, I never realized that if the affiliate ID was in the image source, it would track even though the href shows the UB default link.

    I’m having a hell of a time with Danielle form Chipleader these days, she ignores me, comes up with excuses not to call me, emails me back without actually answering the problem…I’ve been bitching about this code for a month now, I’ve been inserting my own affiliate link into the banners, now she has Diego email me (if she would of only done this a month ago I would of gotten somewhere).

    Any help is appreciated, I just don’t see how this code can be tracking.

    hmm
    Well what is then if you would like to add your own banners
    or serve them yourself
    I know some are doing this and me too sometimes.

    I beleive the tracking must be in the href.
    Never seen it anywhere like that.

    Yep, I agree, but what I need is a few people to confirm this so I can come back to them and say it’s not correct and won’t track. I don’t want to give them hell and find out later it does track correctly and look like an ass. :)

    Any of the coding gurus around to help??

    I’m not a coding guru, but I know why they do this.

    they set via the banner-php a cookie in the visitors browser. means, the Player must accept cookies, if not, the player gets not tracked. But most of the players have cookies enabled, so it works in up to 99% of the cases.

    the reason for this way : the want use the fresh and code-free links from the affiliate sites to ultimatebet.com – this are free backlinks to them.

    an affiliate link with a redirector do often not give any pagerank value…like

    banner-redirect.casinoxyz.com/?affcode=xyz

    thanks metaxa,
    Are you saying that this will track properly if cookies are enabled? Even though the url does not have the affiliate link?

    yes. I checked with your banner-url, the cookie was set with your ID.
    when I would click now on the ultimatebet (or type in the address in the browser) site to signup, they check for this cookie and I should appear in your stats.

    Sorry to be so “blonde” about this, but does this way increase my chances of losing players more than if it had the affiliate code embedded in the href?

    Not sure how to check for you in the stats unless you downloaded and signed up, or am I missing something?

    No it doesn’t. It depends on the cookie duration and how your cookie interacts with other affs cookies (i.e. under what circumstances you cookie will get overridden). Wagershare has the worst tracking via a tracking url. It’s session tracking which means players you send there need to sign up straight away. If they close the browser and go to spinpalace for instance 5 minutes later you won’t get credit.

    right, I checked Ellens Cookie, the duration is until 2008-02-10. One month, seems to be fair for me.

    thats true. what we’ve checked here, is just the tracking cookie.

    We posted about this before – can’t find the thread now. We also posted some replies from UB, who pleaded total ignorance and kept on arguing with tus that it was failsafe.

    If cookies are off, it won’t work.

    Also never seen it before, and that includes the big mega affiliate programs.

    That they still haven’t changed it is nothing short of amusing.
