Why Deep Linking is Beneficial
A few people have emailed me over the past few weeks asking questions about deep linking and why some merchants offer it while others don’t. Most affiliates agree that deep linking is very beneficial when the merchant offers it directly through the network. While it is still possible to deep link using your own affiliate link management software, it is always better if you have a link you know will work. I recommend Manage Affiliate Links if you find yourself in a position where the merchant doesn’t have deep linking. This software allows you to deep link to any page.
Deep linking is great when you need to link to a certain product on a merchants site. This also provides better tracking from within the network. When you use a custom link id, the network will track it and when viewing your commission reports you will be able to see that link id.
