Services like AdBlock or Poper Blocker can sometimes block Affise tracking links due to the huge amount of advertisement. Links get blocked if they were installed right in the browser and worked as pop-up links.

Below, you can find solutions on how to avoid link blocking on the AdBlock side.

Custom tracking domains

If you use a tracking URL with a default tracking domain, update it to your custom tracking domain in the following way:

From  https://rocketcompany.g2afse.com/click?pid=1&offer_id=896

To https://bestoffers.tracking.com/click?pid=1&offer_id=896

AdBlock has a public list of blocked values. If you see your default tracking domain there (yourcompanyname.g2afse.com or yourcompanyname.go2affise.com), it means AdBlock blocks traffic coming via this domain because of the big amount of advertisement. So, it's recommended to change the domain name to the one absent in the list of blocked values.

⚠️ Note that the values in this list periodically change.

Parameters swapping

In your tracking URL, swap the pid and offer_id parameters.

From   https://rocketcompany.g2afse.com/click?pid=1&offer_id=896

To https://rocketcompany.g2afse.com/click?offer_id=896&pid=1

AdBlock has a public list of blocked values. If you see the conjunction of two parameters in the way presented in the tracking URL (pid=*&offer_id=*), it means the Affise tracking URL can be blocked by those parameters. Don't confuse those parameters with others, which look similar (for example, aff_id=*&offer_id=* are not Affise parameters).

⚠️ Note that the values in this list periodically change.

Shortlinks

You can convert your tracking URL into a shortlink. To do this, you can use the special Affise shortlink feature or free tools available on the Internet.

Shortlink example:

https://rocketcompany.g2afse.com/c3WWuu

Shortlinks contain a unique set of symbols, which AdBlock most likely ignores. Shortlinking is the most efficient way to avoid blocking links by AdBlock and similar services.
