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!
