    Hey, as I recall, back in early december you challenged ecomcity to set you up with a datafeed for his suspender's site, and you would check out his conversion rate. I was just wondering how conversions are working for you? Did you get some sales?

    Just want to know how the story turned out, I hate an unfinished story........

    Probably nothing. The merchant already has all the top SE spots, no need to start paying commissions on them. Isn't Mike Anti-Feed? Or are they OK as long as he makes the rules for everybody else on how to use them?

    It's not Happypoon!

    And for the enquiring minds...

    What does the COC stand for? Crooks Overwriting Commissions.

    Poon will get his custom hand made feed shortly as I informed him on Monday. I have to make 164 product images in both a thumbnail and full image size so it fits nicely within a 550 pixel wide table for each suspender category and the jeans. Feed will also be used to power Akivas offer to have a PSC display for non-feed sites like Nova's.

    Datafeeds are evil..Just a tool for those wanting to pretend to be the merchant and use tricks for clicks to fool the visitors.

    Mike has come full circle. Now along with the coupon section on his site, he's now an SE spammer too. What next?

    I work in lounge pants

    I require a mugg shot and ID with any request for a datafeed in this private program. PS: even poon gets no pricing info although it would probably take him 5 minutes to furnish his own. Therefore each category description will have the standard price info with the pre-sell spin to make this redundent.

    I'm sure Nova (Mrs Poon) will whoop his butt in sales anyhow with normal links and the PSC displays. Too bad on the coupons as that feature in the cart was disabled years ago. Have to push the free freight offer which is most appealing to the masses anyhow.

    Definitely Poon is the Ad Whore in the family and he permits Nova to B-a-HO only in his bedroom. Then again they might be doing kinky stuff online with web-cams and running a Far East combo escort & bridal service...

    Trust, you crack me up.

    Since folks are meeting in Vegas, maybe some bets should be placed on Happy or Nova? Who can sell the most by 5/1? I'd bet on Nova selling more ! at Happy

    Nova could cheat, she would give Poon tons of extra chores around the house to keep him busy so he wouldn't do as well.

    Mike do not bother with making a datafeed for me as I will not bother with implementing it so save yourself some time.

    My views on this industry and the many practices that are openly allowed as our commissions are openly raped in so many ways has changed our opinion to the point we are no longer doing new development on affiliate sites and are only doing maintenance on existing sites.

    Affiliatees are in big trouble IMO going forward and I have no desire to waste my time and energies on a deck that is so clearly stacked towards the search engines, the networks, the merchants, the parasites and the many affiliates who will be drawn into attempting tactics that I consider as foul play in order to "TRY" and limit the abuse on them.

    I've got better ways to compete than following the path that is currently paved for affiliates to follow.

    Nope Connie. Horney Poon can crank out this datafeed site in 20 minutes and leave it alone for 1 year. Then bug Nova for a back rub telling her to throw up a few links and let the darn merchant close the shoppers.

    Both rely upon the fact I'm the laziest AM in the business hand picking only high conversion niche' merchants. Only e-mail they get from me are responses to commission payout requests.

    I'll still make the feed for you Poon because I want it for driving Akiva's PSC and Froogle. Throw up some interior page links/banners on an existing site rather then let Nova gloat.

    Damn shame the cookie stuffing tactic works on my 100% parasite hijack proof concept and tracking not even the merchant can fudge. Maybe the great cookie stuffing war game will bring some to their knees if the merchant's revolt.

    I don't think affiliate marketing will be gone
    for a while yet. Sometimes we need to change
    to stay ahead. I have been reading in the
    Warriors forum about a new service that will be
    coming soon which wants to give Clickbank some
    competition, they will have many features that
    Clickbank currently does not have, and they will
    not be using cookies for tracking. It sounds
    like they have many good things planned and it
    seems like they know what they are talking
    about. I am not no technical whiz but will be
    keeping an eye on this.
