    How did you test it to definitively conclude that it is not functioning correctly?

      I set it all up. Then I created some new threads used words like iPad and stero and newegg
      and then I logged out and tried to look at the thread ... I dont see any links and I dont see any words highlighted.

      Is there a way to test this?

      I also dont see any clicks on the skimlinks site

        Hi Tommac12
        If you are using SkimWords Premier, it can take a little time to index your site to target keywords. Pages with more traffic get indexed faster. However, you could test that it is working by switching to SkimWords Lite: it operates in a different way so you will see NewEgg turned into a link (SkimWords Lite just looks for unambiguous merchant names and domains written as text, and converts them to merchant links).
        Switch back to SkimWords Premier and if in a day you don't see links on your page, then email support and we'll investigate. Words like NewEgg and amazon.com for example will definitely work.
        Hope that helps, and sorry you didn't have a perfectly smooth experience!

              Hey Tommac12,

              We've investigated your account, and we can see that Skimwords Lite appears to be up and working - say, if you search for ebay.com in one of your threads, you'll see it has been turned into a link. When you hover over, you should see 'Shopping link added by Skimlinks'?

              If you're still unsure as to whether it's working, or it's not working the way you expected it would, please, email me directly hannahATskimlinksDOTcom and I can make sure we clear things up for you immediately.

              Thanks!
              Hannah @ Skimlinks
