    Convergence I linked your post so it gets picked up quicker. Would be a huge win for affiliates if a Priceline made a change for them. On the other hand its not a big deal to set affiliate referred links to not show contextual ads.

    Are they ethical now and this thread gets moved back to CJ forum?

    They're showing Adsense ads again. Banners at the top of the page.

    We see some affiliates with high clicks but no sales and offer to help them hone their pages. Well I guess they have figured out how to monetize affiliate clicks by making advertising dollars from their traffic. I complained to Travelocity's AM when I was using the site and it was popping ads for TravelZoo. I thought it was adware but looks to be the same as Priceline.
