    1800patches.com has been "shut down for Violations of Acceptable Use Policy" (a.k.a. spam)

    Check your links.

    Is that a situation that 1800-Patches can correct or do we pull the links?

    Spam has been an ongoing problem. This company had great products and CONVERTED well until they started spamming ( or an affiliate started spamming for them ) I have no clue WHO did the spam but it was for their product and it was endless. Very sad, it makes the comapny look very bad. :0(

    Yup - converted great when I first put them up. But about the same time they started poping ads on their site the sales dried up too.

    Tried putting them back up recently since they stopped the popups - have plenty of click thru but no sales. ;(

    And now they are shut down

    Guess these guys are hungry for traffic now. Got calls today from 2 seperate reps about 2 seperate web sites.

    And got to lecture them both about how clicks need to keep converting to sales
