You CJ'ers might like to know that today Linkshare was sold to a japanese company :-) ....... this what i heard ......$425 million....
That sale of Snare, for that amount of money, has me thinking up angles to pitch to rich dot-bubble 2.0ers for my "tastefully svelte" affiliate sites. Makes no difference to me what country the buyers come from, as long as their money's good!
I think I'll charge $400,000/page. And another $100 million on top of that for the "transaction portal page generation system."
Since the New Dot-Bubble 2.0ers obviously have enough money to just advertise the h#ll out of it and bypass (or just eat!) the SEs, they needn't concern themselves with Google and such one way or the other.
No need for them to wonder what to do with the old owner or invent a figurehead position for me. I'll watch the upcoming Dot-Bust 2.0 from my new custom-built Hawaiian manor and wish the new owners the best of luck in finding a Greater Fool to flip the sites to!
