Hi folks! How accurate are link trackers in capturing the referrer page URLs? If the affiliate link itself isn't enough to assign payouts, is bit.ly or linkly accurate in real-time? (i.e., not Google Analytics reports)

Are you trying to track referral earnings? I recommend that you get a software that is known in the industry like ClickMagick for this purpose or an actual affiliate platform. As for bitly I wouldn't use it for this purpose. I've had affiliate links blocked in there from different sites many times and that would definitely throw off the tracking. Hope this helps!

Thank you! This helps. I'm actually looking to identify the referring website URL more than usage of a specific link. I'll reach out to the ClickMagick folks to see if they have a means.
