    Will be culled across all AMWSO merchants for using Zango to target traffic that had already arrived on the Mondera domain and insert tracking.

    Cheers

    Nice move for whacking this one page banner farm web site. Guess they also employed PPCSE blind cookie setting redirects as they sure had no visible landing pages. No PR ramking either so their just the typical sleezey greed drive affiliate seeking to rape merchants pockets from nothing but traffic and cookie hijacking schemes.

    Gee whiz Chris,

    You're keeping the Internet from being free with the zero tolerance stance you've taken.

    I see zZounds on their site. Linda, any way of seeing if they're pulling the same tricks there?

    I believe Zango have said they are keeping it free so I'll be sure to invoice them for my connectivity too! And while they are at it I want a free content on SearchEngineWatch

    Cheers

    Hello Everyone, Wayne,

    Dealsavings is no longer a zZounds affiliate. We had been investigating
    this issue for a while, and were attempting to verify this affiliate'
    sources of traffic. Now that we have come to these conclusions (as you
    all have) we terminated this account immediately.

    Our affiliate agreement is pretty clear about our restrictions against
    this kind of activity. We are employing many tools to catch parasiteware
    and similar unethical marketing practices.

    If anyone ever notices acticity like this in regard to zZounds.com, feel
    free to shoot me an email. If you should have questions about this as
    well, I'm always here to help.

    Have a great week everyone!
    -Mike P.

    Sounds like a Music instrument merchant has stepped up to the plate making it a level playing field for value-add domain bound affiliates. Mike ...send me a PM containing your affiliate signup link.
