CJ backsteps a little on mandating JS links

June 8th, 2006 by Chris

Commission Junction’s recent announcement that they would be mandating the use of javascript, as opposed to straight HTML, links caused a significant uproar among publishers and they seemed to have backed off the issue a little.

On June 23, 2006, JavaScript links will become Commission Junction’s default link type in the CJ Marketplace. However, we will continue to offer Legacy links through the beginning of 2007. The Legacy links will be available for all your advertiser relationships, including those joined to before and after June 23, 2006. At this time we have not scheduled a date for which the Legacy links will no longer be available or supported. We will notify you at least six months in advance of making this change and will not require the change during the 2006 holiday season.

This is a much better situation I think and gives publishers ample time to learn to use the new links while still being able to use the old links.

    That’s good news. I wonder if it was pressure from the affiliates or the merchants that caused this back down?
