What is VigLink and why does ProBoards use it?
VigLink is a company that helps ProBoards earn money from links to online merchants. When you click link to a website outside of your forum, VigLink checks to see if that website is a part of their affiliate program. If it is, VigLink will make sure that ProBoards gets credit for visitors that have clicked on the link. This means that if a purchase is made through the linked website, ProBoards may earn some revenue from that purchase. We believe this is a good experience for both ProBoards members and ProBoards itself because the process is seamless and does not involve adding any extra banner ads to the forum.
Why am I seeing every link on my forum as a VigLink link?
If you are using an ad-blocker or script-blocker, we detect that and automatically fix the links on the page to ensure we get credit for them going through VigLink. ProBoards makes money from advertising, so we appreciate if you can disable your ad-blocker or script-blocker while on our site.
