    LinkShare nominating him for advocate did make me snicker! I think his best advocacy work was getting CJ, LinkShare's main competitor, to rethink LMI.

    He deserves to be nominated - smart dude, used his voice wisely during that LMI thing and more. I hope to see him win it, think very highly of him in many other ways as well.

    Scott Jurango could suck up to the former winners who blazed the trial he now walks upon. An industry vocal advocate shouldn't be championing moves by affiliates that break/bend network & merchant TOS. He's a well recognized voice and has shown some real moxie by coming to ABW over the years to take some lumps for his network.

    I remember him congratulating me here on making 1185.00 in comish from TigerDirect a few July's ago. Never made more then 100.00 from them since the date of that announcement. I'll assume everyone can spell.... data mining, traffic diversion, BHO targeting, and site scraping, PPC keyword targeting of any successful campaign. So what allowed me to get away with some banner and text and individual network generated product links selling enough computer gear to make that comish in a off month.

    Now a vocal advocate would explain the hows and whys so all could duplicate this task for any reporting merchant. No traffic secrets and no TOS violations as all got to watch it happen.

    Linkshare should be ashamed of themselves for this one. Any publisher who has ever been terminated from a network, as these have, should NEVER be eligible for an award of any kind.

    I agree! Don't know how I missed seeing him there on my first pass, must have had some Belcaro stuck in my eye.

    Mike, pulling for you and Jangro alike!

    Bring it home babe, bring it home.

    It was funny when Rand exposed FabulousSavings' link farming practices.
    That was a year ago and little has changed.

    "Best Integrated Lead Generation Campaign
    Chase

    Isn't Chase a sponsor of the Golden Links awards? Seems like that would disqualify them...

    Shoppers determine what has value and they like coupons. Stop manipulating who set the cookie just because you do not like coupon and promotional sites.

    Excellent point except Linkshare and conflict of interest are not allowed in the same thought or sentence. Linkshare certainly has the history to prove that.
