can someone explain why the link that will refer you when clicking an add is that cryptic?!
ex. when I type 'casino' in google.com, the second result is something like this:
http:// www.google.com/pagead/iclk?adurl=http:// affiliates.islandpoker.com/SmartLink.asp%3Faffid%3D1733&sa=l&ai=BUiB853K4QfPPEa-KiwG4hfSfCrH8twjrv7ubAdbQxwWAtRgQAhgCKAI4AECIEEidOaAB6cu-_gPIAQE&num=2
The first part http://www.google.com/pagead/iclk?adurl= is quite obvious, but then ...
Why isn't it something like http://affiliates.islandpoker.com/SmartLink.asp?ref=google&campaign=123 ??
Or is it google that encrypts the link?
