I hope Im not pissing anyone off with this thread
I was always aggressive with affiliates and one day they simply stopped paying.
Perhaps it was cookie washing, I have no clue, but anything from CJ died despite having millions of impressions a month and tens of thousands of clicks.
They couldn't tell me why, if they replied at all, so I dumped it all and replaced it with AdSense which paid off immediately and had no way 3rd parties could game the system after the fact by replacing my cookies.
Lately I've been re-introducing affiliates but only dedicated direct affiliates, nothing from a large affiliate site that's easily a target and not-so-surprisingly, these programs are paying off like CJ used to pay.
So lumping everyone using AdSense as "lazy" while there is so much affiliate fraud going on is a crock and a cheap shot IMO.
