    No Growth for CJ As ValueClick Takes A Pounding
    Good article on Mthink: No Growth for CJ As ValueClick Takes A Pounding - mThink

    “Analysts were a tad obsessed with Google Affiliate Network revenue. Giuliani, the CEO, let out a clue to the potential of these affiliate advertisers by saying they didn’t get the service level at Google that they do at ValueClick’s own Commission Junction. Hence, the pricing potential of the $30 million Google Affiliate Network business that ValueClick inherited is weak. It may be time to start thinking GAN revenue is inconsequential for the overall growth of ValueClick.”
    You can't just flip a switch and transfer programs to another network and expect instant affiliate sales. Its hard damned work to more links even for datafeed affiliates. I generally expect a 90 day ramp-up period when launching a new program and didn't this all take place more in Q2 so wouldn't reflect new sales until at least Q3?

    Some of those merchants, for whatever reason, may be "forgotten" by affiliates altogether.
