WP Links FWD to this affiliate link- why?

    This wordpress blog has links on the About page:



    When links on the “About” page are clicked they FWD to some other affiliate links Share Sale MERCHANT33066- not our links…

    This is really obvious in firefox…

    Links FWD to this affiliate link- why?

    This code?

    <script type=”text/javascript” src=”http://b.scorecardresearch.com/beacon.js”></script><script type=”text/javascript”>try{COMSCORE.beacon({c1:2,c2:7518284});}catch(e){}</script><noscript><p class=”robots-nocontent”><img src=”http://b.scorecardresearch.com/p?cj=1c1=2&c2=7518284″ alt=”” style=”display:none” width=”1″ height=”1″ /></p></noscript><script type=”text/javascript”>

    Is this coming from the New Twenty Eleven wordpress theme CODE? or what?

    Kind Regards,



    The blog I need help with is christianrapture.wordpress.com.



    When I click the links on that About page they are all linked to this site > w.freewebs.com/christianlinks/thebrideofchrist.htm I suggest you clear your browser cache and cookies first and if the issue still persists please contact Staff and describe your details to them as we Volunteers cannot help you.




    Another possibility could be that the link you are pointing to could be a result of advertising but I hasten to add I don’t know if this the the case or not. Staff will be able to ascertain if this is a correct guess or not.

    WordPress.com has been running advertising on our free hosted blogs since 2006. Many bloggers do not know this because despite the fact they ticked the box required to get a free blog, they did not read the ToS. Many also do not read features page, or advertising entry in the support documents after registering their username and blog(s). Also note that as the ads do not display to us when we are logged in, and as many use browsers with ad blockers when logged out, they may not realize they are there at all. The only way to get rid of all advertising on our free hosted WordPress.com blogs is to purchase an annually renewable No-Ads upgrade.

    If you feel an ad is inappropriate please take a screenshot of it and send it to Staff by emailing support@wordpress.com or upload it into your Media Library and let Staff know it’s there for them to view.


    Thanks for they fast reply, and no there’s no ads via my links. We make a point not to advertise on the Ministry…


    I did clear cookies, and sometimes when links are clicked on the About page they FWD, and cookies are kicked via cloaked affiliate links…

    or when links are clicked on About page a glitch happens, and error links show up such as: http://christianrapture.wordpress.com/about/-3

    Anyways, I really do like WordPress, and have a great day!


    I did upload a pic that shows the blog WordPress Stats- with the affiliate links- keep in mind there’s no ads on our links…

    I’m not seeing it myself, and even so it wouldn’t come from us.

    I’d hesitate to guess that this might be something that freewebs.com is doing. They do need to make money someway.
