benzinha - that's a good question
I actually believe that what I did in linking the post in the comments, eliminates the registered click to my Blogit posting. I think I am right on this but not completely certain. My concerns lie primarily with outside of Blogit link stats. Of which I intend to take screenshots and write posts about.

using that link to this post from the comment area of the previous one,
and opening a new window, does that give you one more extra click ?? Just curious.

Dark_Moon - typical of all affiliate programs there is a tracking number

embedded in the eBay links I use to display the product of others.

Referred to as an "Affiliate Tracking ID number" . . . For an example: simply look in your browser's address field while on any Blogit page and you will see groupings of either 6 or 7 numbers in the link (sometimes both). Where these numbers are not associated with affiliate tracking, they are respresentative of the technology.

In the case of the eBay affiliate system, they use what they refer to as "campaign" numbers but they are much the same thing as an Affiliate tracking ID number. Following is a segment I have clipped from one of my eBay affiliate generated Javascript links:


The segment track=5306010530 is the tracking number. In the remainder of the code for this link (not shown) is a means of collecting rudimentary information such as clicks, page impressions and of course click throughs to purchase. This information is sent to a data base which matches the campaign number (Affiliate Tracking ID number) with my affiliate account. Payment is sent once monthly to my PayPal account if my earnings numbers meet the payment threshold. If not, they are rolled over to the next month until they do.

There is definitely a learning curve with this stuff but getting started is a modest level of difficulty. I would contend that if someone knows how to use this Blogit interface to post their blogs, the eBay affiliate interface is only slightly more challenging. They also have a short help video that closes the gap in levels of difficulty almost completely leaving just the understanding of rudimentary HTML as the final hurdle.

I'm not knowledgable enough to follow all of this. How do you get paid selling the other's guy's stuff on ebay? Moon
