Today I got an email from a company asking me if I want to link (affiliate program) to one of their programs. Personally I donít like that program, but the real problem I found is that it looks that they have a dead penalty from Google and linking to them bring you in a very risky position. So I am wondering what other board members here think about linking to them and their program.

Hi Monus,

One of the tenets of any type of sales is that to be the most effective you gotta' believe in the product (unless you're a super salesperson who can sell anything).

So, everything else aside (Google and other SE guidelines on using these products and services, etc.), if you "don't like that program" you probably wouldn't be too effective in promoting it anyway, so why bother?
