Hi all

I was hoping to pick your brains about an idea I have.

I run a travel business with a limited product inventory. ie the product is my own and when we are full on a particular day we cannot sell more product. Our product is suited best to travel companies who can query our database and offer our product if it's available for requested dates.

However, having said that, we run a successful in-house Adwords campaign which gives us a good ROI. This gave me the idea to look for external adwords professionals and offer them a white label site to bid on. The budget would be their own but they would receive commissions for sales.

A few questions then:

- How would Google react to seeing several identical sites (apart from the custom banner and contact info, appearing in adwords listings?

- Is there any place on the net you know of where adwords pro's look for new products to ply their talents on? Is this even someting they do?

- Is there a market for something like this within the adwords community? Or do Adwords professionals prefer to work on fees and use someone else's budget?

Here are some answers to your questions:

Q: How would Google react to seeing several identical sites (apart from the custom banner and contact info, appearing in adwords listings?

A: It will be very hard to get a good quality score and low bid on these types of pages. Here is Google's official word on travel sites like you suggested:
[adwords.google.com...]

Q: Is there any place on the net you know of where adwords pro's look for new products to ply their talents on? Is this even something they do?

A: Most pro's make use of companies that are listed with: CJ.com, LinkShare.com, TradeDoubler.com and Zanox.com

Q: Is there a market for something like this within the adwords community? Or do Adwords professionals prefer to work on fees and use someone else's budget?

A: The CPA model was around even before Google started offering CPC advertising, so its a well established industry, which most of the pro's started with, especially the old ones like me.

Thanks for the feedback.

So in that case I will market all our affiliation methods on affiliate forums.

What do you look for in an affiliate program from an adwords perspective? i.e. If I were to get you interested, what kind of details would you like to see in my pitch?
