I've noticed that even as a subscriber, some new thing called "Linksmart" is being included in pages, and results in keywords like iPhone, MacBook and so on being linked to GZ price searches, eBay listings, or other affiliate-y things. Is this intentional? I thought one of the benefits of subscribing is that we don't get any of the advertising code pushed down so we get faster browsing? This smells like ad code to me...
- Viglink: automatically turns keywords into affiliate links. These are NEVER shown to logged in users, subscribers or not.
- LinkSmart: turns keywords *I* specify into links.
I am using LinkSmart to automatically link to make sure things like "telecom forum" link to our Telecom forum. Or "sbiddle" links to his blog and so on. I also made it link "Amazon Kindle" to our affiliate page or some keywords link to our Price Comparison site.
