How to find affiliate URL for any product without signing up.

November 4th, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

There are many affiliate programs online and many of them require you to signup for their affiliate program while you are not required by the payment processor like CLICKBANK. They enforce you to signup to their affiliate program by not giving you the actual affiliate URL or the Vendor id. If you manage to find out the vendor ID then you can construct the URL easily. Because the url for any Clickbank product is: affiliateID.VendorID.hop.Clickbank.net.

Now if the vendor will not give you the affiliate URL then you are required to signup to get your advertising URL. Signing up is not a bad thing but what I hate is that from that day on your email account will be swarmed with promotional emails. The more affiliate products you sign up for the more emails start to fill your email account. This is frustrating.

The solution I am giving here is partial and you need to read it as a whole because you may even loose your commission if you do not have the right information.

This is the trick I use. I make a query in Google like this:  site:product.com and see the search results. I will look at the URLs in the search results to find any word like affiliate, JV, affiliate tools or JV tools. If I get one I click it and Voilla! There I will get the promotional materials and my affiliate link. This method works partially because you will find those JV tools pages only if they are indexed. If not, you can not get them. If you can not get the JVtools page that way then look for another method below.

Before that I want to give you a warning though.

1st  Some Clickbank products DO require permission to promote and for those products you HAVE TO signup and get permission to promote and get paid if you make sales.

2nd  You cannot always construct the URL correctly even if you get the vendor ID. Because a vendor can have different products in the same account and when constructing your affiliate URL as you know how, the URL doesn’t  direct to the product you want to promote. So in this case, finding the Affiliate tools page is essential.

Now the other method I use to find affiliate URLs is using firefox. First open firefox and search and install the firefox add on Verify Redirect. After restarting Firefox, make search with Google in the product name keyword. Click on the first page search results one after another to find out if they have affiliate links. And if they have, then when you click on the affiliate hyperlink in that page, the Verify Redirect addon will show you every URLs that redirect from one to the other. Keep your attention here to see if any Clickbank affiliate URL appears like affiliateID.VendorID.hop.clickbank.net …

If you see any link coming like that then copy it and paste it in a notepad and remember to change the affiliate id with that of yours.

You got your affiliate link because someone somehow managed to get the affiliate link and posted it on his blog. May be that guy has contact with the vendor or something. Getting the affiliate link like that you can continue marketing those products.

Sometimes it gave  me a headache to find those affiliate links because even Clickbank will not list those products if the vendor chooses his product not to be listed. Sometimes you can not get the JV page in any way you try but you may find it with the verify redirect firefox addon.

Sometimes you see an incredible offer in your email and want to promote that offer but could not get the affiliate URL. Then use this Verify Redirect addon in Firefox that reveals every turn of redirecting URLs. I hope this helps somebody. You can give me your ideas below in the comments section
