/itm/like bug

Hello everybody! I have this link for example which is created from the findings api: http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?ff3=2&toolid=10041&campid=5337589386&customid=≶eo=1&vectorid=229466⁢em=291672280272 and when you click on it doesn't send to the product, it sends to a /itm/link url and that is some starnge ebay template or something like that.... http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/291672280272?vectorid=229466≶eo=1⁢em=291672280272&rmvSB=true any suggestions? Thanks! Ronen.

Yes, this is known behavior. We've discussed it at length over in the eBay Partner Network forum. It's not a bug and is by design. IIRC, eBay prefers those API-generated affiliate links to go to the "hybrid landing page", as it's called, because their optimization efforts allegedy show higher conversions than for the standard view-item page. If you want to send the visitor to the standard item page, or anywhere else, you can just build your own rover/affiliate links and use them, instead of the API-provided ones. To build your own rover links, first start with a standard eBay item URL (maybe: www.ebay.com/itm/123456789 ), then use ePN's Link Generator for Custom Destination URL and learn/mimic the URL syntax when building your own links.
