    Is This O.K. or Not
    Hello there. I am sort of new to all of this affiliate stuff with SAS. I am just curious about something. There is this company on SAS called Postcards Galore. If you go to their site through the SAS link, a big page with Sponsored Listings comes up. Sort of Google Ads on steroids looking stuff. I am actually an affiliate of one of the companies listed in the Sponsored Listings. That company is rather large. So, what is up with this? We would like get paid if someone visits their sponsors? It seems like this would be sort of like an affiliate working for an affiliate or something. I just think there is something wrong with this picture.

    This has been a constant problem at SAS. That domain is up for sale -

    Welcome to ABW and SAS Snowfinch! It is a good idea to visit each merchant's site before you sign up with them to ensure that it is not a leaky site like that to take your traffic and send it off to who knows where. SAS offers a way for merchants to block ads from traffic that comes in from an affiliate, and they also offer a way for phone-in orders to be tracked.

    If you visit a merchant site through an affiliate link and see ads and big prominent 800 numbers for phone orders it is always best to ask the merchant about these issues. Sometimes they are not aware. Sometimes they know very well what they are doing.

    Good luck

    ? This is a case where the domain is for sale and that's a parked page full of ads. Just like this one, which took about about 40 seconds to find in SAS - http://www.yourcellphonebooster.com/free/

    So if you have links to that one, might as well pull them down as well.

    This is the reason you always need to visit a merchant's site. In this case the domain is merely up for sale but there are others that require more monitoring.
