I've been a TripAdvisor affiliate for a while now. Not making millions, but I was cruising along earning about $2 a week. For the past six months all clicks have been 12 cents apiece. About two weeks ago my account reached $99.91, 1 click short of the payment threshhold. Haven't had a single click since, or so they say, despite the fact that my traffic numbers are way up as the summer approaches. I also notice on their site that they are no longer accepting new affiliates.
Has anyone experienced any problems with TripAdvisor?

As they are owned by Expedia, I don't see the site closing anytime soon. You situation looks a bit strange...I guess TripAdvisor don't make much money from affiliates. Have you contacted them to ask if there are any problems with tracking, etc?

I just used them to help choose a hotel in Texas. I find the user reviews really helpful.
