I thought Linkshare bought Buy.com? So what would be differant?

Thanks for your post. LinkShare did not buy Buy.com. We have the same parent company Rakuten. They are now our sister company.
Buy.com moved from Commission Junction to LinkShare effective 10/1/2010 and we have increased our commissions drastically to beat our competition!

I just took a look at buy.com and I see banner ads all over the place.
Are they blocked from site visitors who click through an affiliate link or are they leaks?

I was thinking of promoting buy.com as well but then when i take a look at their landing page, there are:
- 3 ads labeled "advertisements", 2 rectangle 1 leaderboard
- 1 ads labeled "sponsored links", leaderboard
- 1 ad section labeled "more buying choices" which send clicks to pricegrabber and then to the merchant as far as i can tell.
Now that's quite a lot of ads compared to amazon.
Obviously, i don't think that affiliates get a share of the ads click. But do affiliates get a share for referring buyers to pricegrabber > merchants?
