what is redflagdeals.com affiliate link
When you hover a link sometime it says "redflagdeals.com affiliate link"
What does this mean? and why do some people do it while other links don't? am I giving people money when I click these links?

If the retailer is within our affiliate network the link will be automatically converted to that. It's a way for us to earn a percentage of the sale to help keep the lights on.

I'll send this over to the team that works on this stuff. Hopefully they can get it fixed up soon.derass wrote: ↑ Is there a special way to link them correctly? Tirerack links never work. Here's one for example. Instead of taking you to the article, it takes you to the Centric Brakes product page. All Tirerack links do this.

Link shorteners are normally prohibited (no way to know what's behind the URL other than by clicking them) but I'll make an exception here.

Yes, we've had an ongoing issue with our Sport Chek affiliate links. I believe the problem affects every site though and it's because they only want people being directed to their main webpage.

It is kind of scummy, however it makes sense though, doesn't it?
