Check Your Links

If you’re in the affiliate game, I highly recommend that you take 20-minutes and double-check your links every once in a while.

I finally was able to debug an anomaly in recent site earnings to discover that I was using an invalid affiliate link. A wee mishap that has left me missing out on ~$575 of revenue. Very sour experience indeed, but a valuable learning lesson nevertheless.

Update: The amazing folk at Glispa were able to do some of their own investigating and reassign some missing sales to myself – an amazing service. Special thanks to Brian & Andre.

what was wrong with your links?

Nothing big – just had the wrong ruddy affiliate ID in the link. A bunch of sales would have been generated, but not tracked back to myself :(
