Just wondering if they still are recognised by WA if shortened by Bitly or a similar program..plz :)

Yes to Mark Tait suggested below!

If you are redirecting to the affiliate link through a shortened link then yes. I prefer using a wordpress plugin to do this with my domain. EG http://example.com/wealthyaffiliate redirects to my affiliate link. Hope that helps :)

Yep, agreed - all the shortners are doing, is redirecting through another service so you can gather stats on various places your links are coming from (eg. you could have a short link on your side-bar image, but use another going to the same affiliate link - but using another short-code, within your product page.

You'd then be able to get stats from the "shortner" you use, as to which receives the most clicks etc - but they'll still go to the same place.

All the best, Mark

Cheers…understood & thank you very much indeed :)

Thank you very much for taking the time out of your day to sort that for us Mark, Much appreciated :)
