How to Confirm that VigLink is Installed

You can install Ghostery extension for Chrome. When you load your page, you should see VigLink as active on the purple popup that is displayed to the bottom right of your page.

You can click a link to a merchant page, such as this to JCWhitney.com. Once you click it, check in the browser url field and see if the page redirects through api.viglink.com. You can also download a chrome extension that shows redirects such as Ayima Redirect Path and make sure links are going through VigLink.com.

Last, you can check to see that the javascript is installed on the page. Go to a page where you expect it to be installed, right click on the screen and search for viglink or vglnk within that page. The javascript will look something like this. The key: will be different for you.

<script type=”text/javascript”>

var vglnk = { key: ’1b293995b7b5a0ec05d64a93f7004cac’ };

(function(d, t) {
var s = d.createElement(t); s.type = ‘text/javascript’; s.async = true;
s.src = ‘//cdn.viglink.com/api/vglnk.js’;
var r = d.getElementsByTagName(t)[0]; r.parentNode.insertBefore(s, r);
}(document, ‘script’));
</script>
