    Have you looked at the Performics affiliate demographics questionnaire at the Performics web site lately? With all the discussions about merchants dumping affiliates that compete with them in the Search Engines and Directories, isn't it interesting that they are now asking how you (the affiliate) markets your website(s)?

    <BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><font size="-1">quote:</font><HR>How do you generate traffic to your web site?:

    Offline direct mail
    Online marketing (banner or click buys)
    Search engine optimization
    Affiliate marketing
    Co-marketing initiatives

    (one of those "check all that apply" forms)<<my comment<HR></BLOCKQUOTE>

    Please notice the fourth choice "Search engine optimization." Now, Performics claims they do not share this information - but it makes me wonder.

    Am I being alarmist? It is just a very curious question to ask. I would think with all the nifty ways that the programs "Use" us, wouldn't learning how we succeed be high on their list?

    I think they already know how the successful succeed -- or they wouldn't know what to put in the list. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif[/img]

    Seems harmless enough, really. That list covers pretty much every option for marketing a website and I, for one, would be interested to see how high SEO is on the list of ways to market a website.

    I remember reading somewhere that Performics themselves was one of these networks that hired SEOs for particular merchants. 'Bout time they gave me a call !
