    Hi,
    I have currently only been direct linking with the Campaigns I have run on POF but would like to try landing pages to try and get a better ctr.
    The problem is I am not sure how to pass the sub id's from POF to the Aff network.
    I think if I put my affiliate link on the Landing Page with the sub id's then that part will be ok but I am not sure what to put in the url field on POF to get the info that I need.
    Any help would be great as I cannot find a simple explanation anywhere.
    Thank you
    Brian

    Passing your SubID from your landing page to your affiliate network will take a little programming knowledge, but basically it would look something like this:

    At the top of your landing page:
    PHP:
    <?php
    $keyword 
    $_GET['keyword'];
    $affiliatelink "http://myaffiliatenetwork.com/track.php?subid=$keyword";
    and then in your call-to-action you'd like to your affiliate link with something like:
    HTML:
    <a href="<? echo $affiliatelink; ?>">call-to-action</a>
    
    In POF you'd have your link as something like: mydomain.com/?keyword=24-40m and then that keyword would be passed into your affiliate link's SubID slot using the $keyword variable and your call-to-action button would like to your $affiliatelink.

    Edit: lol. I'm terrible at explaining programming stuff.

    It seems as if IM is still for programmers? I guess Fiverr or Gigbucks will have to rescue us.

    Knowing some programming isn't a requirement in all situations, but I find it's definitely helpful.

    Hi Luke
    thanks for your help.
    I have just read something that suggests prosper202 or similar will solve my problem. Would you agree?
    Also in my original post I meant to say conversion rate not CTR.
    Thanks again,
    Brian
