    Here's part of a post from Whiznot on another topic that got my attention --

    "...there's indications that Overture is removing affiliate sites from their bids, Inktomi is kicking more affilate sites out and Google has indicated affiliates are not welcome."

    Does anyone have any information on what Inktomi is doing that might be negative to us?

    Some listings seem to end up mysteriously buried!!

    But then other affiliate pages rank very highly--I haven't really seen rhyme nor reason to it yet... most of my pages rank very well at Inktomi but occasionally one drops like a lead brick!

    I haven't got the patience to try to tweak them out of the pits yet because I have many other URLs I can just list instead. Once I get them all listed then I may fiddle with it more...

    I'm yet to be convinced that Google has it out for affiliates -- I'm not saying they aren't, just haven't seen evidence of it (and I don't take that snippet from the AdWords agreement as evidence... not until somebody clearly defines what it mean -- from a legal standpoint).

    Haven't seen evidence of any problems with Inktomi, either.

    One would think thta our trusted affiliate networks would LOOK into this matter for the millions they make off of our SE listings.

    It is all in how you do it. I'm on page two for amazon album covers. The key is to call yourself a publisher and publish.
