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)

Hi there -- Anna here w/ VigLink. If you are testing the two solutions, we recommend you test each separately because the two services act on links within your content in a similar way (and both are javascript add-ons). Long-term, it's rare (if not non-existent) that a site would run both in parallel.

Let us know if we can be of help in getting you set-up -- or answering any other integration / testing questions!

Cheers,
Anna

Anna are you from the company? If so I have a question it's not really related to this mod, well more about your product.

I run skimlinks on the main site but have viglinks associated with tapatalk, are they able to run alongside each other like that?

Yes, Anna here again and I am with VigLink. In the scenario you describe above they will be able to run alongside each other -- the implementations are distinct and will not interfere with one another.

Let me know if we can help with anything else (or if you ever want to test VigLink on your full site)!

Best,
Anna

Doesn't seem to be working on vbulletin 4.1.11 Patch Level 1

API key is correct in my settings but VigLink's installation check still says "VigLink was not detected"

Any ideas?

Nevermind. The installation check is now showing it to be installed correctly. I suppose it takes a while to start working?

Is there a conditional I can use so it excludes the reputation link in the postbit legacy? We're using it on a vb 3.6.8 forum and it breaks the javascript from e-steki Karma version 2.2 in Opera. Thanks.

I use this Plugin... was on Driving Revenue but switched over to this plugin and removed the old Driving Revenue Plugin a long time ago.

Anyways tonight I got the following email from Viglink.

Hello,

We are reaching out as we noticed you are still using the DrivingRevenue JavaScript, and unfortunately this feature will no longer be supported after July 1st, 2012, due to changes outside of our control.

So, we very much need for you to implement the VigLink JavaScript on satelliteguys.us and use this instead of the DrivingRevenue JavaScript. After July 1, clicks will not affiliate through the DrivingRevenue JavaScript, and you may get errors as a result of its use. We expect that you will see performance improvements from using the VigLink JavaScript anyway, so this move should be beneficial for multiple reasons.

If you have any questions, please let us know. Otherwise, you can obtain the VigLink JavaScript bootstrap by navigating to the Install tab of your dashboard and installing it directly onto your sites by pasting it just before the closing body tag in the site's HTML.

Thank you in advance and we appreciate your attention to this important update.

Best,

Brian
I can not find that I am running any of the old Driving Revenue script, the only script I am running is the one inserted by this plugin.

Does this Plugin need to be updated?

Yes, this plugin probably needs to be updated. Viglink bought out Driving Revenue a long time ago. I'd update the code to the current one from the Viglink site and you'll be good to go.

I'd go to Viglink's web site and let them know. I don't think they get on here much.
