    Hi guys!

    Does anyone know how they deal with cookies? Like first come first serve. And/or how long they keep cookies alive.
    I read a thread about some other brands, where there was mentioned most have a certain time period like 3/6 months and some indefinite.
    So I mean like if a player clicks on your link, but has previously clicked that same link on another site.

    Cheers! :)

    RA works on 3 types of tracking. Cookies, Session and Query String.

    We also work on last referrer to each individual casino. So if the player has clicked through to a casino elsewhere and then comes through your link on the same casino and you convert the player, you get the credit.

    Also, if a player was referred by an affiliate tag, and clicks on a tag that is not an aff tag (i.e. a tag that does not start with aff, eg a newsletter tag), the aff tag will not be overridden and you will still get credit.

    If you have any more questions about this, I'd be happy to answer them.
    My email is Renee@RewardsAffiliates.com

    Considering you are still promoting our properties quite heavily on your website (allbonusbets.com), I am starting to think that you're trying to get everyone else to stop promoting us so that you have all the market share. Do as I say, not as I do right?

    I'm aware of the cross promotion tactic they use. But that's not really shaving is it, even though it's almost as bad.
    I asked this question about cookies because I was wondering if I should continue to promote them. But like Renee said they handle cookies in a more than fair manner. Thanks btw Renee. Guess I'll stick with them for a little while longer. Even though I have kinda given up hope they will stop the cross promotion anytime soon, if ever..

    There is a good explanation for that :

    1. In the beginning - not knowing about the cross promotion and Renee being nice - I added them on all sites I had.

    2. Allbonusbets has been offline for a while awaiting a major update and new template. I do not have the time to do that myself so I have hired somebody to do it for me but he is not that good with html so I probably have to do it myself as soon as I have some spare time.

    3. A lot links/banners have the wrong codes from the former Playshare, Villento brands so I also send RA free traffic too, sigh.

    Hopefully most will have different view after reading the true marketing story behind Rewards Affiliates!

    ------
    ME having all the marketshare ROFL ?!! YOU are kidding right ?!

    My sites do not have that kind of traffic volume.

    I am fighting for injustice and exposing it in the SE's will help to make others aware.

    -------

    I am not judging you, it is up to you whether you send them traffic or not.

    At least you are aware of it and that is what I am trying to achieve, to save you from adding them everywhere not knowing that they are cross marketing all brands.

    If anyone has questions feel free to ask.
