    I only heard about how adsware are stealing affiliate sales in the forum. After some reading, I know what are they and what they do. So, I have a question.

    How do I know if I am being affected by adsware?

    One can only guess.
    If you KNOW for sure that you are sending targeted traffic to product pages , the price is right , and the clicks continue to be recorded, yet few or no sales ever show up ,
    it's a safe guess that some of your sales are being stolen somewhere in between the point of your visitors exit, and the shopping cart .

    Ohh, so do any web site provide a list of merchants which are popular targets of adsware?

    Most all theftware domains like www.ebates.com have a list of their merchant sponsors. So check out gator.com and iWon or even whenU.com to see who monitizes their BHO plug-in. Haiko has www.parasiteware.com with a list of merchants for certain B-a-HO's.

    We and the merchat AM's need to put pressure on the networks to publish a list of known BHO affiliates.

    If they won't adopt and feed a bird ..flip them one! BBQ some Gator and remember to flush WhenU..
