All Affiliate Warning - Adblock impacting aff links

Post by thePOGG »

I've just been alerted to a serious issue that has major implications for many affiliates.

Adblock - one of the biggest anti-spam browser plugins - has just been updated to prevent any link with an affiliate tag opening in a new tab/window. When a user with Adblock clicks on such a link, the window/tab is just auto-closing. This has huge implications for ThePOGG - all our aff links open in a new tab - and we've seen our conversion drop significantly due to this change. Fortunately it should be an easy fix, but this is serious enough that I wanted to warn other affiliates.
