ClickMate provides a wrapper that you can use on any link to convert it, on the fly, to a SmartLink. This means that the link will go through our matching process, and on future clicks will work through our real time auction system and will re-route to the most beneficial advertiser.

Your account must be a member of our LinkMate program to use this feature. For more information about this program, feel free to contact us.
