Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
Google Search for "aol" [google.com] ... be sure to look all the way to the right, so see MSN's new AdWords in action.
But, with all of the legal situations flying around, can this possibly continue to exist? Something tells me Gates and Case are totally unaware of something like this... But would LOVE to take it up over a friendly conversation.
I DO feel badly for the individual responsible for it... Because if word ever got back to AOL or MSN... I think someone may get a bit heated...
GoogleGuy... Perhaps you could shed some light on how these things work?
Andrew, thatnks for the screengrab.
...No, I don't...
Though, I wouldn't put it past them! I've worked on affiliate programs and all, and I bet man of us have. However frusturating they may become, I don't think I would ever resort to something like that - even on an obscure site - nevermind google!
Can you honestly imagine the legal ramifications that would arise based on this individual being found? I think Gates would hire his firing squad, and wait until after the lawsuit was cleared before taking action...
Just my $0.02... And that poor sole's financial future if found! ;)
It does go through a commission junction url - or is that part of adwords itself?
Too bad we all know about it, and have the screenshot thanks to Andrew! ;)
Who says forums aren't powerful?
Good job BT on keeping this forum so popular and lively. Obviously, the readership extends beyond those who participate.
Maybe, Google never caught on to this at all. Maybe, just maybe... That affiliate in question lurks these forums as well.
It's no secret, many of the most successful optimization people make some side $$ on affiliation programs like that.
Thankfully, the TOS here prohibits the linking to them!
I still think that it could be a possibility... No?
