    Best thing about the study is a tool to see what ads gator is popping up for a site:

    http://asp-cyber.law.harvard.edu/gat...igerdirect.com

    Above is for tigerdirect.com and shows there used to be an ad for Overstock.

    Just replace the domain name with any other to get results, e.g.

    http://asp-cyber.law.harvard.edu/gat...=overstock.com

    Shows ads for ubid and Avon popping up on overstock.com.

    Excellent reference! I understand what Gator does, and how it does it, much better now!

    This should be mandatory reading for everyone with a website! Thanks for posting the URL, ipohopper.

    Making progress....

    Great job...

    We need to invite Ben here:


    Ben is a student at the Harvard Law School and a Ph.D. candidate at the Department of Economics. He previously studied economics and statistics as a student at Harvard College, and he recently finished a senior honors thesis quantifying the effect of Amazon.com's editorial discretion book advertising.

    Ben's current research agenda includes evaluation of registrations in new TLDs, a quantitative comparison of commercial and non-commercial uses of the Internet, and an examination of Internet filtering efforts by governments worldwide.

    At the Berkman Center, Ben's projects have included analyzing the formative documents and continued activities of ICANN, running Berkman Center webcasts, and developing software tools for real-time use in meetings, classes, and special events. Ben previously oversaw ICANN Public Meeting webcasts and operated the technology used at ICANN's quarterly meetings. More recently, he has written about domain name politics, particularly in the context of expired domain names subsequently used for pornography and registered with false WHOIS data.

    Ben has served as a consulting and testifying expert for a variety of clients, including the ACLU, the National Association of Broadcasters, the National Football League, the New York Times, and the Washington Post.

    Interesting!

    ****
    Gator Advertisements Targeted at qksrv.net

    Gator targets the following specific portions of qksrv.net:

    Gator specially monitors requests for the following host names, directories, filenames, and URL parameters on qksrv.net. Advertisements listed above may be tied to some or all of these keystrings.
    Keystring(s) (conjunctive)
    *

    ******

    Surely an incentive system that says it doesn't hijack commissions from Affiliate would be set to NOT intercept www.qksrv.net ???
