ProfitBite enables webmasters to make money from their site by automatically rewriting links within the posts or else where on the site.

ProfitBite combines accounts from the main affiliate networks and at present supports over 3000 merchants from 6 individual networks, so any external link could be a potential revenue stream!
Example:

Lets say someone posts a link to Play.com on your forum, recommending a new product. This script will rewrite it so if any one who clicks that link and goes on to purchase something from play.com you will be entitled to some commission.

Check out http://www.profitbite.com for more information.

Development of this product is ongoing and future versions will introduce new features such as:
  • Server-side rewriting of links
  • Redirects via your own domain
  • API integration
  • Full control of your ProfitBite control panel from within vBulletin (once the API is released)

Feedback is welcome and would be much appreciated, so if you start using this product and feel there’s something lacking, please leave your feedback here.

You can find the installation instructions within the README.txt file.

Thanks

I'll be checking this out later.. Many thanks!


--EDIT--
It's a great concept, but seems to have a quirky effect on my posted links.
I use a combination of AME and Link Icon in Posts for nicely formatted links.

After clicking a link, it does this:

If I could figure out a way of stopping it doing that, this would be installed like a flash on my forums..

If you pm/point me to a post on your forums where you have a external link I'll have a look and see if anything can be done about it.

If you disable AME does it start working?

Disabling AME make no difference. I don't think there's any conflict with it actually, must be something else that's putting titles to the links automatically..

Oh, but there is a conflict with vBSEO in private forums.

External URLs get altered for privacy purposes..

Can we get these spammers kicked out?

I'm receiving more and more email spam about this because of owning multiple vb licences.

Does vbulletin.org want to be seen to condone email spamming?

Is that email sent from vB.org? If so, please sent me the full mail (including headers) in a PM.

Otherwise, vB.org has nothing to do with these emails, and they probably got your email address from some other place.

The author of this modification has cleared this up to us. Those emails are not sent from vB.org, and the only way it is related to vB.org is that in their old text of the email they provided a link to this modification on vB.org.

We are not a party in this communication, so complaining here on vB.org would not serve any purpose. But the author has updated the test in the email to exclude the link to vB.org. If you have any more questions regarding these emails, i suggest you contact the sender directly.
