    Hello,

    I have done a few searches here on this forum but wondered if there were aspects that I am over looking.

    I want to start looking into what affiliate programs to join in my genres. before I do I want to make sure I am on solid ground. What key things make you sign up or run away?

    Also I read in a prior post and asked/posted on this but never got a reply:

    How do you detect/realize that an affiliate is parasite free or utilizes BHOs?

    Thank you in advance,

    Brian

    Reflect-

    Any merchant on Shareasale is parasite free, as they are a parasite free network.

    RE: what to look for. Product/service should be a match for content. Should be fairy priced, and a reputable merchant/brand. Should have a responsive Affiliate Account Manager.

    Know obviously, I'm on the merch side here too, but I'd say don't worry too much about "doing it all just right." Just do it. Learn. Then make it better. 1,000 clickthroughs to merchant A earned X, and 1,000 clickthroughs to merchant B earned Y.

    Knock em dead.

    I agree with NZ you needto just do it...

    the reason you didnt get an answer to your question is the answer is different for everyone...

    there is no correct answer....

    this si what makes Affiliate marketing such a challenge and lots of fun at the same time...

    just pick a niche that interested you ... and go for it.. at first pick only merchents that have parasite free sites... if you do read in the affilaite FAQ that the merchant is committed to runing a clean program.. ask them before you sign up...

    These are some of the things that I check lately before I join another merchant.
    -------------------------------------------------
    Who and what about the merchant.
    How much they pay. (%)
    How long is the cookie duration.
    How many times they will pay on the same cookie.

    And I check on ABW if that merchant is mentioned on any forum as a good or bad merchant, before I make my final decision on whether to join or drop any particular merchant.
