‘Sites’ allow you to create ads using affiliate sites other than Amazon. You can even make your own custom HTML code to use instead of Amazon links/ads.
Commission Junction (CJ.com) and Clickbank.com support has been included. If you use either of these sites in your ads, be sure to set your affiliate ID on the ‘Settings’ page.
If you want to create a new ‘site’, you will need to give it a name, image link HTML and text link HTML. The CJ.com and Clickbank default ‘Sites’ will give you an idea of how to do this – be sure to read below about site tags.
Site tags allow you to integrate your new site with the Product Style system. Tags can represent affiliate ID information that is stored in ‘Settings’ (CJ & Clickbank IDs) or it can represent information from a specific ad being shown.
Supported Site Tags
When you are using another site, that same field is then used for a Product ID that is passed along as a tag.
If you decide to create new, custom ‘Sites’ HTML code, keep in mind that this AID field is limited to 255 characters.
If you set it up properly, you could use this field (which is entered for each created ad) for link cloaking – Just create the HTML code using <
<> – This is the “Image URL” address, which is a saved value from each individual ad.
Although you won’t be able to create new site tags for affiliate IDs for new sites, you can just have that affiliate ID entered directly into the custom HTML code for each ‘Sites’ entry that you create.
‘Site Name’ – A name to help you identify each site. When you create an ad, you will have to choose from the site names in a drop-down box to select a site to use for the ad.
‘Image Link HTML’ – The HTML code to be used for image ads for this site. This field accepts all of the supported site tags except for <
‘Text Link HTML’ – The HTML code to be used for text ads for this site. This field accepts all of the supported site tags except for <>.
