This is a bit concerning.

I think it was yesterday, or maybe the day before, someone left a comment on one of my pages. When I clicked on the user it took me to a squidoo page. Now I know that this has happened to others, because I read about it in the forums. I deleted the comment because I thought it was just Spam. The thing is, when I checked my Viglink account today, it's showing two clicks to squidoo and commission paid for the clicks to their charity. I'm a bit concerned, because it's showing up in MY viglink account and I don't even write for Squidoo.

I am wondering if it showing in the outbound clicks section. I have some clicks  that show up for links that leave my pages to follow outbound links.These do not earn me revenue they just show where the reader goes to next.

2uesday, it's showing revenue that has been donated to Squidoo's charity. It's not that I'm concerned that revenue was created, I have no outgoing viglink links on that page, just that a, what I consider to be a spammer, is somehow connected to my viglink account.

It is showing up in your Viglink account because the link to it was here on Wizzley and somebody clicked it here on Wizzley and was then taken to Squidoo.

Yes. Is that usual, Sam?

That is what Viglink does, it shows you which links were clicked and any resulting commissions.

It's just that I thought the resulting commissions would be those generated by my pages. It is showing a commission to Squidoo's charity, but under my account.

Can you post a screen shot of what you see? SY

This is so confusing. A screenshot is the only way to get some clarity about this.

Do you know how to take a screenshot, Hollie?

Ah, I've just had another look, it states bloomingrose/click to give to charities/squiddo  2clicks. But when I look to the left hand side it says (symbolised by a little half moon) non-monetised. 

Sorry, panic over- I misunderstood the data shown.

Try to learn how to take a screenshot, Hollie. Google it - there are many free tools around. It makes everything so much easier for people who want to help you with such issues.

Glad this is resolved.  Smile

Hi Hollie,

There's a key on the keyboard for print screen. It should be to the right of your keyboard, right above the numbers. On my laptop it's surrounded by a rectangle, which is to say it works with the function (fn) key on the bottom row.

So what you do is press fn and that prt sc key at the same time.

Then you go into a photo-editing program, open a new document, and press ctrl + V (paste), and you'll have the Web page there as an image, ready to be saved.

Thanks Mira, could I use a programme like paint.net or Gimp?

Don't make it so complicated. Get a simple screenshot app - your browser may have one built-in - where you can drag a frame with the mouse and then save the whole thing as a .jpeg or .pgn to your hard drive.

Do you have Windows 7 or Windows Vista?

If so, there is a handy bit of kit which comes with it called the 'Snipping Tool' which allows you to quickly and easily grab a copy of any part of the screen (or indeed, the whole screen).

Click on the start button on the bottom left, use the search and type 'snipping', you should then be presented with a link to the already-installed windows snipping tool.

It was a year before I found this little beauty myself and I now use it religiously.
