Very similar to Tuesday as far as contextual ad income, but back to normal in the affiliate leads and sales.
Tried out some new merchants, and dumped some that were shafting us. When will these merchants get it through their heads? Affiliates are not stupid, and when they’ re stiffing us we know it!
As simple as removing their code, giving them a call to tell them why, and adding affiliate links from a different company. You really have to keep on top of these merchants.
Your humble narrator has been burned dozens of times, by affiliate programs and sleazy merchants. A word to the wise: if you’ve sent a merchant over 150 unique, and targeted visitors, and they have not given you credit for a sale or lead, DUMP THEM RIGHT AWAY!
If they have not converted a lead and they’re honest, then they have terrible site conversion. If they have been converting visitors from your site, and have not credited you for the sale or lead – they’re scum-bags. DUMP THEM RIGHT AWAY!
You know, I think I’m going to start a category/series on all the scum-bag merchants I’ve dealt with in the past. Hmmmm….have to think about that one. Very negative Karma with a quest like that.
