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)

I am a legacy DrivingRevenue customer who is now with VigLink. I make good money every month with this program. Absolutely LOVE IT! No ads to annoy my users and no work required on my part.

As long as your site contains links that can be affliated, you can benefit!

If I am buying from these merchants myself, is it ok to set up links on my site, and click through and buy them with viglink?

Because we are not supposed to buy through our own links for most merchants...But they are actually turned into YOUR links correct?

I initially signed up with DR, and I haven't changed the code as far as I can remember and now everthing is with VL. Your DR revenue login will work on the VL site.

This is a very good point. Although you have to realize that VL will be getting the bulk of that commission and you'll be paid for a normal link. I think that's the whole way they're able to make money.

I do realize they would get the bulk, but at least I would still get something back, instead of nothing... Just waiting on their answer I guess..

I'd recommend leaving it as is, we're migrating Driving Revenue publishers in batches. Once it's your turn, you'll be notified via email. There's isn't anything you'll need to do, we handle the entire migration on our side.

I'm not familiar with the Global ad space, but the code needs to be in the footer before the closing </body> tag. PM me a link to your site and I can verify that it's working correctly.

Log into your VigLink account, click Tools and then Merchant Coverage.

It is against the merchant Terms of Service to knowingly make purchases yourself for the benefit of a discount.

Not really sure what you're trying to say, or what "VL will be getting the bulk of that commission and you'll be paid for a normal link." means.

As standard practice, we pay out 75% of the revenue and keep 25%

It does everything transparently and on-the-fly. So all your old links are automatically converted when they're clicked. Pretty slick actually.
