    Who has the Google Rebranding Damaged the Most?
    In watching my email over the last several weeks, I've seen some pretty popular (or at least well known in this industry) names migrate either exclusively to the Google Affiliate Network, or open second, third, or eightieth concurrent affiliate programs there.

    Which network do you think the Google rebrand has hurt the most?

    In a word - EVERYONE!

    Seriously though, CJ and Linkshare ... big time. I don't necessarily think it's just because of the re-brand, per se, but more for the added tools, data and already good service and competative offering which now just has an added extra -> G!

    I don't really see Avantlink, Shareasale or Buy.at really affected - or at least negatively

    Maybe I'm the exception here
    I have had both a Google Adsense and Adwords account for about 3-4 years and was making about 2-3K a month with Google referrals. When I tried to migrate to the Google Affiliate Network I was denied.

    I quickly setup accounts with CJ and LinkShare to fill my ad space and have found some decent advertisers.

    I wonder how many other affiliates / publishers are in the same boat as me? I think CJ and the others will see a few more affiliates coming there way now. I can't be the only person this happened to.

    I don't think GAN is good for affiliates who do search marketing on Google. There's an obvious conflict of interest there.

    I can tell you that many of my top $ makers have moved over to GAN and now I'm not making diddly squat with CJ. CJ was always my best network, too.

    So it looks ot me it could be hurting CJ.

    Yeah, I would have to agree that from where I sit, I see CJ taking it the worst.

    What a shame
