If you're unable to confirm that Skimlinks is working on your site using the test link, then you can follow the instructions below to conduct a manual analysis. (example below is running on Google Chrome, Mac. Please see relevant browser settings to re-produce the results).
Method 1 - Copy Link Address
Place a link to a merchant on your site, right click the link, "Copy Link Address", paste the copied link into your browser search bar. If the link shows as http://go.redirectingat.com/... (followed by a long referral link) this means that Skimlinks is now operational and your links are being tracked & affiliated. If the link doesn't show go.redirectingat, this means there may be a problem with the installation. Please see the relevant installation guide. As a side note, It's worth mentioning that installing the Skimlinks Code more than once can cause Skimlinks to fail, thus causing the go.redirectingat conversion to become ineffective.
Method 2 - Inspect Element
For the second method of manual testing, right click on a merchant link, click "Inspect Element". This will then bring up a box showing the URL that has been placed. If part of the URL shows as "data-skimlinks" (or something similar; data-skimwords, data-skim) then this shows that Skimlinks is currently operational and your links are being tracked & affiliated.
If you require additional assistance, please submit a ticket here, giving as much detail about your specific installation and site as possible and we'll get back to you within 24 hours.
Please be advised that having more than 1 line of the Skimlinks code installed causes the instillation to fail. For this reason, please make sure that only 1 instance of the code has been placed on your site. Having Ad Blocking technology (or any other link blocking add-ons) may also cause Skimlinks and the Test link to fail.
