    Adding a new website
    Hi Everyone,
    Sorry if this has been covered-I searched and found some info from pre-Goog,but it was vague at best.
    I would like to add other sites to my account, but can't seem to find the way.
    I was just turned down for Guess,which I wanted for my handbag site.
    My account site is a jacket site. Not sure if this is the reason, but I'm sure it doesn't help. I have other sites I would like to add-car sites, but I'm afraid the same thing might happen until I can list them.
    It was so easy in CJ,and I am hoping for the same here-if I can figure out how to add them.
    Thanks,Ron

    It could be the reason , in addition to other reasons like low traffic levels and other issues that the merchant has. But some merchants permanently reject an application and there's almost no way to re-apply if they permanently reject. May be if the merchant is contacted directly they may approve. But at least there should be a temporary rejection and not a peramanent one which would allow rejected affiliates to reapply after a period of time.

    Under - Account Profile look for the section called " Publisher Site Description" , this is the only place I can find in the account interface where multiple websites can be specified.

    There doesn't seem to be a way to add individual websites. You could write to them affiliatesupport@google.com and make that request.

    Here's an email from Google about adding websites

    Google Affiliate Network publishers can use as many sites as they like.
    However, ConnectCommerce only allows one site to be associated to each
    account.

    You have three options to use multiple sites in Google Affiliate Network:

    1) Create separate Google Affiliate Network accounts for each site you want
    to have advertiser links on. You will have to submit separate applications
    for each site you want a Google Affiliate Network account opened for.

    2) Use member identification (MID) tracking.

    MID tracking is a system where you give certain links separate codes so you
    can tell which site the click came from. MID tracking is necessary if you
    wish to keep track of commissions made from each site separately.

    To utilize MID tracking, append your standard Google Affiliate Network
    tracking link with an additional URL parameter beginning with the characters
    mid=

    For example, a standard Google Affiliate Network tracking link looks like:

    http://clickserve.cc-dt.com/link/tpl...00000000000000

    where lid is the unique ID of the link assigned to you by Google Affiliate
    Network, and pubid is the unique number that identifies each affiliate
    publisher.

    To use MID tracking, add the MID parameter (&mid=) to the end of the link,
    such as:

    http://clickserve.cc-dt.com/link/tpl...000000&mid=xxx

    where xxx = a unique identifier that corresponds to the website that you
    need to track separately. MIDís can be up to 256 characters long, and all
    special characters must be HTML encoded.

    Publishers should not be passing any personally identifiable information
    (such as email address, social security number, banking information, etc.)
    in the MID field. If this is done, Google Affiliate Network will purge the
    information from our system and it will not be recoverable.

    3) Use one Google Affiliate Network account. You would use the same link on
    all sites and track all activity in aggregate.

    If you are going to use option 2 or 3, please also make sure to list all of
    the sites that are associated with your account in the "Publisher Site
    Description" section of your account profile in ConnectCommerce.

    Please let us know if we can be of further assistance.

    Thanks,
