So I was trying to expand my affiliate network to include a company that is very big in the US for music instruments. I went on their website and the affiliate program was under VigLink. As excited as I was I opened an account and installed the plugin to activate. Then I read more about what VigLink does and it seems to scan your content and automatically provide affiliate links for the product to whatever is the best choice in their network. I may be wrong, but that was my understanding.

I then deactivated the plugin to remove it and stuck with what I have now until I get some more feedback. Is VigLink worth using? Does it override my current affiliate links? And more importantly, does it just go link crazy and your page just has a bunch of highlighted text everywhere?

Curious to know more about it.

Thanks

Chris

Great review on it and you actually answered most of my questions there. This is something that I may revisit in the future. I don't think that my traffic is large enough to make this any value to me. Plus, one of your cons, I would rather have control at the moment as to where my links are being placed. I try to keep my articles affiliate link free and redirect from those to the reviews that contain affiliate links.

I saw that they take a 25% commission and I guess depending on if they find the highest commission this can work. Most of the programs I have seen in my niche are around 6-7% and if I can earn that on my own without them taking 25% of that, I'll take my chances on my own for now.

Thanks for the review! I will keep this in mind.

I am keeping this deactivated. Some of the cons in Jerry's review were reasons I had deactivated in the first place, the biggest for me being control. I want to have control over where and what pages my affiliate links are on. Thanks!
