    Hi,

    Is there a way to encode thousands of hoplinks using ClickBank HopLink Shield?

    Why do I need that many? Let me explain. I am an affiliate having ten "cbmall.com"-like websites and I am using 10 CB accounts with them - one per website. CB has about 10,000 unique active vendor usernames in their marketplace. Currently I am using a standard hoplink format (http://affiliate.vendor.hop.clickbank.net/) and want to switch to the encoded hoplinks. So this means that I have to encode and add to my databases over 100,000 hoplinks.

    I could write a php script that will send requests to the "hoplink shield encode" form and then record its response into database but I afraid of being considered by clickbank as a spammer/attacker/hacker etc.

    So, how to do that in legal manner with no fear of being penalized or blocked?

    Is there an API for this task?

    Any limitations?

    Thanks,
    Kent

    P.S.: Don't offer any third-party link redirectors/encoders please. My question is about native clickbank hoplink shield service only.

    If I may ask - what is your reason for doing this ?

    Sure. Each website gets over 400-600 unique visitors per day from google search results, in the clickbank analytics I see 30-60 order form impressions, 10-15 order form submits, and getting 0-3 sales per day, some rare days up to 10 sales, per account.

    I know this is not a lot, and I know that the CB storefront sites is just like hunting for mosquito with bazooka. But I want to encode links with CB hoplink shield and see the difference. Smile

    So the sole purpose would be to check whether customers
    are purchasing under their own link. Correct ?

    Not only that. As you know, there are a lot of different adware/malware/spyware tools living on potential customer's machines, designed to replace affiliate nickname in the hoplinks with their own and steal my commissions. So I am interested in overall result, want to see if this really can take any effect, any sales increase.

    That would be a good reason to check it out.

    If it would be to check if customers buy under their own
    link I would suggest that the only ones who know how are
    IM people with ClickBank knowledge - typically
    affiliates.

    And they would not be looking at a ClickBank mall. That
    is for the end user (customers not affiliates).

    Affiliates would be looking at the ClickBank Marketplace.


    I'd also say that there's nothing unusual about these results

    400-600 visitors ==> 30-60 order form impressions ==> 10-15 order form submits

    and even this is not too unexpected

    ==> and getting 0-3 sales per day

    Adware/malware/spyware type theft would only affect the first part (visitors ==> impressions)

    I agree, there is nothing unusual - I am using clickbank for a few years now, but I just want to check if encoding hoplinks would make any change to my current sales. That is why I am asking for a way to encode all hoplinks. Is there a normal way to do that?

    Hi Kent,

    I'll ask around and see if there's a way to do a mass encoding, but I don't believe you can. I'll check with IT and verify that, though.

    Hi Beau,

    I appreciate your reply!

    If there is no way to do a mass encoding, then can you ask your IT as for how many requests per minute will not be considered abusive? So I could write a small utility that sends limited amount of requests to the hoplink shield encoding form and encode all links within days/weeks/months.

    Thank you very much!
    Kent

    PS: I am not very good in English. Sorry Smile

    Kent,

    I checked and there's currently no way to do what you're asking, though because of your request it's been noted as a possible future feature. I couldn't get a solid answer on how many requests per minute would be considered abusive, so it's up to you whether you want to try your second option, but I do have to warn you that there's the possibility of being blocked if the hits get out of hand. Sorry I can't be more specific.

    Beau

    Wow this is old. Yeah since I'm scraping the new template they launched broke it. I will have to find time to fix it.

    I'm wondering why you did the 2 changes in yours?

    PS You can pay me to do it quickly. PM an offer if interested. I will release it afterwards.
