    Does anyone know if there's a problem with the Coldwater Creek datafeed? For the past couple weeks the number of items has been about 30% of what it used to be. I don't want to update it if this is a problem.

    You mean Coldwater Creek is dropping from LinkShare? Didn't get any email about this, when was it sent?

    Got it, thought "them" was Coldwater Creek. Still didn't get that email, though. Did they give a cutoff date?

    The email didn't mention datafeeds and it wasn't anyone using dynamic pages. It was concerning the Dynamic Rich Media links that you get from Linkshare.

    Here's a copy of the email rec'd 2/2 -

    At Coldwater Creek we consistently look at tools and opportunities that help our affiliates. During the last few months, we've determined that the Dynamic Rich Media links aren't as successful as we had hoped. The feedback we've seen shows that they have produced a small amount of sales relative to the large amount of resources it takes to keep them up to date. Therefore, we are removing these link types from our programs until we can streamline the process.


    If you are using the Dynamic Rich Media links, please replace them with banners, text links, or individual product links as soon as possible.


    Our affiliate program and your participation are very important to us. We will continue to test and adopt new tools and ideas that will help you be more profitable. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.

    Thank you!

    Thanks for posting that Linda.

    We did terminate our dynamic rich media links. We just weren't seeing enough affiliates use them to justify them.

    As for the datafeed, let me look into it. We haven't stopped sending the feed and haven't done anything to make that feed smaller. I'll get back to you as soon as I know something.

    While I am here is there anything else that needs to be addressed or that I can help with?

    The number of produts in your feed has definitely dropped.

    When I first started using it, it had almost 1800 items. In October, that dropped to about 1400. On December 27, it dropped to 857. It has gradually dropped since then. On 1/18, it dropped below 500. The most recent feed had 426 items.

    Jamie, any news on this? The number of products is down to 433 from 1,223. I don't want to update it if it's not correct.

    Sorry it took me a few days, but everything should be working again. We had a minor problem that took most of the premium products out of the feed. But you should see around 1500 products in there as of a few days ago.

    Thanks for bringing this to my attention.
