Help ...Explain

So, when I post a link to ebay...or someone else does, and I try to go there using my iPhone ...it directs me to some site called "Viglink.com" which only shows me stuff from Amazon. What's the deal?

Here's an ebay link:

1986-2006 Kawasaki VN 750 Vulcan TIMING CAM CHAIN TENSIONER MANUAL ADJUSTER | eBay

When this posts...I can see it says "eBay"...but it takes me to the other site. Doesn't happen to others using PC's...and doesn't do it to me on other forums I belong to.

Explain. Is this site owned by Amazon?

Here is where that link takes me:

http://www.viglink.com/shop/query/19...anual+adjuster


AND....while you're reading this....I lost/forgot my password here. Please send me an email with my password or one I can use if I get logged out.


Thanks!

Viglink is a targeted advertising/marketing company. They work with eBay, Walmart, Target, Amazon, and others, so they will likely pick up your search criteria and/or cookies from your browser and send you targeted ads. I went to their site and they have an opt-out option available, but I haven't tried it.

That opt out will work, but apparently it's viglink doing a test of a feature that's having unintended consequences. Should be resolved soon

Well hope it clears up soon.

And I need you to reset my password and send me an email with the one you used. I can't change my password unless I enter the current one...which of course I can't do...

I think it's Aliens trying to take over.

That explains alot. Now things are beginning to make more sense to me. Thanks for confirming that, DOC.

**Really not sure if the Big "C" is back right now
but having to face the fact that this is a lifetime routine
going forward. Five operations done and it still continues.
