    If any of you are in the humor market and considering affiliating with PrankPlace.com -- be very very careful.

    Today, we were kicked out of the PrankPlace affiliate program for ranking well on google.

    Did we do anything wrong? Nope, PrankPlace themselves confirmed we violated no TOS, and did nothing wrong.

    But for "technical reasons" (ie: ranking well on google) we were asked to leave.

    Sad, very sad.

    Idiots. Luckily you have some options and can just send their competition your traffic/sales.

    eh, that doesn't make sense.
    Following everyone else is a GREAT way to become average.

    Pfft. Very weird situation. We've got more information now: We are not kicked out of the program, but this was poorly communicated at first.

    There does seem to be some valid issues with Google. Stress that this is with Google, not with the merchant or affiliate.


    The lesson? Merchants: Affiliates can help, but only if you communicate with them.
