We have implemented an update where we remove all affiliate tracking from links to iTunes and Apple Music, which has fixed the problem with broken links. We continue to monitor the status of links with affiliate tracking and will revert our change when the issue is resolved on Apple Music.
Be aware that for the duration of this incident, no affiliate commissions or iTunes / Apple Music attribution data will be recorded. This will return back to normal once we revert our change pending a resolution on Apple Music.

There is a current issue where Apple Music links that include any affiliate tracking result in an error page. This issue is not caused by Linkfire, but we have identified a fix by removing affiliate tracking from links. We are implementing and deploying this fix.
We will then continue to monitor the situation with Apple Music links and revert our fix when the issue has been resolved on Apple Music.
For the duration of this incident, no affiliate commissions or iTunes / Apple Music attribution data will be recorded.
