You don't have to use the freebiestuff.com page, it's completely up to you, it's just an extra service that we offer.
You can also instruct your freebiestuff.com page to use your own logo instead of the regular freebiestuff.com logo, you can also add your own text hyperlink back to your own website.
When you log into your account we recommend that you check the the "NEWS" section, this will give you our latest feedback on which offers are working best for people.
Cyberbounty has worked hard on ensuring that your URL's are as short and easy to use as possible. Long URL's can cause problems with certain email clients, as they break them up, causing incorrect URL's, this will not happen with a Cyberbounty URL.
For your information, this is how they work:
All URL's contain the following
Next you will add your "variables" so that we can identify which sponsor to send the user to, which banner they clicked on (which helps us track which banner is most effective for you) and also your unique ID number, which tells us that the click came from your site.
Your unique ID is :3958
Variables used in the URL are:
'A' = [A]d ID, this is the ID number for the particular sponsor
'B' = [B]anner ID of the particular banner used.
'C' = [C]lient ID, your unique ID, which is listed above.
So a typical URL would look something like this. A - Let's say the ID for this sponsor is "1" B - You use banner number 2
C - Your ID - Always, 3958
The Question mark is required, so are the ampersands.
Confusing ? Don't worry, ALL URL's are on the site anyway.
We look forward to working with you and would like to take this opportunity to wish you the best of luck.
