Concerning Zazzle

I am editing my Hydrangea invitations page and can only seem to make text links to

  • single products
  • store homepage

So is it true that links to category pages are not allowed?  For example a group of products in one design line within my store.

I know I read something about how to link to Zazzle, but have forgotten and can't find info.  Only link through the Z module?

Now with the Viglink system I can make text links without a referral code and Viglink will pick it up.. correct?  I have to say that I like this opportunity, and since the Zazzle referral system doesn't seem to do much for me - anywhere, I'm hoping Viglink will.

Sorry, but this stuff confuses me.

(Also thank you for the editor's choice award - Such a nice surprise.)

Phew!  I thought you meant you were changing your hydrangea shop on Zazzle.  I make money from your shop through referrals.  Not sure why you don't.  :P 

If Zazzle is one of their affiliates, and you can check humagaia's page to see then yes to your question.  Okay, edited to say that since Zazzle wasn't on his page, I checked, and it is a vendor, so you can go ahead.

Nightowl mentioned Zazzle as one of Viglink's affiliates, but in general I'd like to know the proper way to make links to my products / stores from Wizzley.

Paula, I'm glad you make referral money off me Kiss and I love that you promote me so well, but the only good referral money I make is through e-mail, direct links to my customers per their requests for products.

I'm really excited to see what Viglink will do.

This stuff confuses me too. I think Anne should answer this. And she will, I'm sure.  Smile

You should be able to build links to any existing page on Zazzle. Just copy the URL of the page you want to link to without worrying about anything else.

Does the page exist on Zazzle?

I could not link to a sub product page.  The link would go to a general Zazzle page that was not mine.  Example:  I wanted to link to all "Blue Moon" items in my store and couldn't, so I changed it to a single invitation and that worked.

This is the link I tried to use:

http://www.zazzle.com/bluehyd/gifts?cg=196874964084170340

I'm sorry, I must be a bit dense today. What exactly is not working? I just tried adding the above link to a page, and it worked just fine. It led me to your "Blue Moon" Collection on your Blue Hyd Zazzle store. Is that not what you want?

Pam, that link should work.  Are you trying to put it in text or a module.  I can link to it from right here.  http://www.zazzle.com/bluehyd/gifts?cg=196874964084170340

My link to the general "Blue Moon" page does not work.

It takes me to this:

http://www.zazzle.com/gifts

So, I have changed it back to linking to the individual invitation.  I don't know why, but I'm leaving it like that.  Undecided

Thanks to all.

Excellent Paula - thank you and congrats on those referrals!

I believe you get a lot more traffic to your pages and that is why you get more referrals than I do.  I know the referrals work, I just make more selling my own things at present.

For some reason linking the URL for a product section still does not work on my hydrangea page, but no matter, the links I have there will get the customer to the store.

Keep on promoting me.. pretty please...you are so good at it!!
