Info:
VigLink is the easiest way to monetize your outbound links. You get paid when visitors click from your forum to a retailer and buy something. The VigLink analytics dashboard tells you which outbound links are clicked most, which are making you the most money, and more.

You've created something special. Your community is a place where people congregate to discuss their passion. It turns out they also make decisions about what to buy and where to buy it–and that's valuable. VigLink helps you capture this value, effortlessly.

In fact, VigLink is second only to AdSense as the most widely used monetization technology for vBulletin. Don't take our word for it, here's the breakdown.

This add-on will install the VigLink javascript on your forum, without the need to edit templates.

VigLink Convert
Your members are constantly posting links to retailers. If any go to over 35,000 retailers, VigLink will automatically convert them to monetized links that pay you a commission.
Learn More >>

VigLink Insert
Forum threads often reference products, brands, and retailers. VigLink can automatically link these references, making sure they always go to the most valuable destination.
Learn More >>

Controls
Version 2.0 now gives more control over how VigLink runs on your site. You can enable or disable VigLink Convert and VigLink Insert for specific user groups and forums.

Tested On:
4.2.0
3.8.7

Installation Instructions
  1. Import the XML file
  2. Go to your AdminCP and edit the VigLink options
  3. Enter the API key from your VigLink account page. (If you don't already have a VigLink account you can sign up here)

Any former Driving Revenue users notice that payments continue to slip from month-to-month since the acquisition by Viglink? I used to get payments every month on the 20th. That continues to slip...last month it was the 26th...this month, I have yet to receive my payment (and it is the 29th).

Viglink - Etsy.com

Does viglink convert Etsy.com links? I am looking for a way to monetize these links. My members post lots of things from Etsy.

No, according to the Viglink "Merchant Coverage" tool. Are you sure Etsy.com even has an affiliate program? I looked on their site and it doesn't look like they do.

Octavius, see my post #30 in this thread. The links won't show as affiliated when you hover over them, but they are getting converted.

I have installed VigLink on my 4.02 (Problem?) forum, now.
So far, if I post a public 'normal' link to a merchant, the target link will be not converted if I click on it. Do I have to wait some time to bring this system to work?

regards,
Jimmy

LOL I was checking to see if the links actually get affiliated and I was looking for my personal Amazon affiliate link and after a while I understood you guys are using your own links and giving me a share of the profit LMAO

One question though;

www.wisehyip.com when you look at the bottom right I've added the Links monetized by VigLink like I'm supposed to do, but when I mouseover the link it just says: http://www.viglink.com/corp/ftc?vgtag=badge shouldn't it be saying http://www.viglink.com/?vgref=9350 like I see in my account ?

Or does it happen one some other way?
I took a look at your site and could not find the badge. However the vgref and affiliation takes place at click time, so until the link is click, you wouldn't see the vgref

How do I obtain my number?


The API Key should be in the account page once you login to VigLink.com If you are still having issues, please contact us at support@viglink.com

Our payment terms state the following:

When do I get paid?
Payments are made on or after the 25th of each month. You are paid for the previous month's Net 30 amount and the two month prior Net 60 amount. For example, the payment made October 25th includes the Net 30 amount from September and the Net 60 amount from August. These amounts can be seen on the calendar report page.
We haven't sent out payments on the 20th since eBay changed their payout date to the 25th, which was in April of 2009.

November's payment was after the 25th because of our Thanksgiving break.

The links are converted into affiliate links once the link is clicked.
