I noticed dating websites pay best commissions (but only those who pay per signed up members and not those who pay a commission according to biught memberships).
What is your impression?
I have the feeling 99% of tradedoubler programmes are worth less as nobody is interested in those.
If there are any really good ones out there I don't expect anyone is going to tell you which ones they are, they don't want other decent SEO people competing with them if they can help it.
You just have to jump right in and try them and see which work best for you. If something isn't working after a reasonable trial, dump it for something that is, concentrate you efforts into those that do work and work more on testing others, until you can establish a base of programmes that work for you. Once that's done keep testing all the new programmes and other networks and keep going that way.
Which affiliate programmes are best? The ones you find that work for you.
