What's an affiliate link and where do you see it? The link only had "?string".

Beat you to report tongue

An affiliate link is a tag on the end of a URL identifying who provided the link. It's how the cashback sites work when they pass you to the proper URL.

This one had a url of the form url.../uixxxxx

User Id. So he would get a payback, possibly a couple of pence whenever anyone clicked it, or more likely a few quid whenever anyone signed up through it.

Only Bill can say which of us reported first tongue. Your post wasn't there when I went to the Report, and my report was the affiliate link. Plus it being pestilential in this forum.

I didn't bother to check tongue

Multiple reports about a post aren't a problem- I'd rather have that than nobody reporting one because they all thought someone else would/had!

Yes. I thought it was like that, but in this case it was the top-level, of the web server, filename of the page being displayed, as in http://domain.name/?uixxxxx.

Or where in the URL can it get the page filename? Is it done by look-up?

EDIT: OK, I get it! The "?uixxxxx" is/includes an indirect reference to the actual page.

I see what you mean smile. Quite neat that.

The "ui" of course is just how that site works it. They all vary, but I always examine links in that style of post. The style of post being the first alarm signal.

If you examine my TsoHost link on this page you see their method. Interestingly, I see that has a ? as well. I wonder if that's always the case?

Amusingly I didn't know TsoHost did affiliates, until I saw an affiliate link to them on here in a sig, by someone who joined them on my recommendation. I was miffed, as they could have notified the site manually. That was when I got a code and added it there, but not here.

I'm not a Web programmer (much) but I'm just trying to understand it.

The diff is your TsoHost link leads to their home page whereas OP's leads to a specific subsidiary page w/out specifying it in his URL. Is that your neat trick?

HP does it with ".../home/?p=nnnn".
Nectar does it with ".../?clk_rvr_id=xxxxxxxx". .... Oh no, it doesn't! It does it differently with diff sites, not all involving "?" frown
