How to make a link:

Addition: When you grab your link, make sure to grab the http link after the "a href" part. There may be other links that start with http. Sometimes you'll see a link after IMG. That's not your affiliate link. That's a link to an image.

If you are not seeing any links and are just seeing "iframe" then you're probably looking at the wrong code and need to find something that says "text link" or similar in order to get the right thing you're looking for.

If you're dealing with Amazon, do your best to active "Stripe". It'll make everything a lot easier:

I'm trying to capture a link for a pinterest image, and it's not working....arrrrggghhhhh. What am I doing wrong?

hi, Judy, what link are you using and what are you doing?

Rakuten offers a text/email link that I was trying to put in the URL spot on Pinterest, but it kept telling me that something was wrong with the URL.

It would be simpler to add the URL (if I can get a good working link) but I might have to do a review on my website and use the link that way.

ok. If you like you can send me the link in a pm and I'll take a look to see if I can work it out for you.

Thanks Nathan. Regarding Rakuten I always did take the whole text provided and tested it. Does that mean I could never get the commission?
