Thanks for your response. It looks like I didn't do a very good job of asking my question though!
So I understand about the Common Hop Link that allows affiliates to refer buyers to any page I specify on my site, and Product-Specific Hop Links that allow affiliates to refer buyers to a purchase page for a particular product.
What I'm wondering, is if there is any other way to create a Hop Link? Such as a Hop Link that directs a buyer to a blog post, sets the cookie for any purchases before expiring. In essence, a way to create a Hop Link that could link to any particular page on my website permanently (i.e. not changing the Common Hop Link).
I hope that makes sense!
