Learn how to mange the settings to prevent Convert, or Optimize from working on certain parts of my site.
Publishers can access their Settings at https://publishers.viglink.com/publisher/settings.
Note that changes to your Settings can take up to 24 hours to take full effect.
Reaffiliate Affiliated Links
If you have existing affiliate links on your site, you may want Sovrn //Commerce to overwrite them or bypass them. To overwrite the links, make sure this box is checked. To make sure Sovrn //Commerce bypasses them, make sure this box is unchecked.
By default, Convert will only automatically affiliate existing hyperlinks. If you also want Convert to turn plain text URLs into affiliate links, check this box.
The Optimize Links feature will allow Sovrn //Commerce to transform links into affiliate links for a different merchant that is carrying the exact same product. Sovrn //Commerce will optimize the merchant in cases where one merchant is paying a higher commission rate or where the publisher is not approved to work with the original merchant.
Advanced: Link Target
Decide whether you want users to be directed to the merchant page in the current window or a new window. We recommend that you select "New window," which offers a better user experience.
How can I prevent Convert or Optimize from working on certain parts of my site?
When Convert is enabled (on by default), norewrite can be used to ensure links are never converted on specific parts of a page.
If "Optimize Links" is enabled, use nooptimize to ensure certain links are never optimized.
To ensure that Convert is disabled, please use both nolinks and norewrite in the class.
To prevent a single link from being monetized:
<a href="https://example.com" class="norewrite">VigLink ignores this</a>
To prevent multiple links from being monetized:
None of these links will be monetized by VigLink. Not
<a href="https://example.com/1">this one</a>, or
even <a href="https://example.com/2">that one</a>.</div>
If your HTML already has another class where you’d like to use one of ours, just add a space between them. They’ll both work as expected:
<div class="myclass nolinks">
My Nikon D7000 is amazing! VigLink will not insert a link on the text Nikon D7000.</div>
