I have just joined an affiliate program and tried sending the visitor direct to the merchant. After a few days, I got this message from Google:
Action taken: Suspended - Pending Revision Issue(s): Identify Affiliate Status
Please read below for definitions of the issues I found:
Identify Affiliate Status: You must clearly identify yourself as an affiliate or distributor in your ad text. This will help provide clear, descriptive ads so that our users understand the nature of your site and your business. Affiliate status cannot be indicated in your URL, as the URL is not always visible on our ad network sites. -----
Is this new? What do they mean exactly? I haven't seen anyone else identify themselves as an affiliate.
