    I just noticed today that an affiliate of Zappos is bidding over Overture for the two key terms, Zappos and Zappos Shoes and they are using the direct link to Zappos from the bid. The text clearly states that it is an affiliate, but they are masking their site name with the Commission Juncion qksrv.net url.

    How on earth does this get through and isn't this a violation of COC at CJ???

    DO a link search at CJ for "advertisers","zappos".

    That'll tell you all you need to know about whether CJ is concerned about this. Apparently Zappos competitors are allowed to use "Zappos" as a search keyword in the CJ link interface.

    I realize advertiser are allowed to bid on those terms, however, they are not allowed to list direct links (affiliate) to Zappos via search engines...

    Zappos allows bidding on ppc and placing direct affiliate links there. The only concern is that there is www.qksrv.net masking placed
