    I tried to sign up at CJ but got the following message:

    ********
    Dear ......
    We regret to inform you that your application for a publisher
    account in the Commission Junction network has been denied
    due to ineligibility for membership.

    Only bona fide business customers may apply and Commission Junction reserves the right to reject any application that does not meet
    reasonable Internet business standards, as such standards may
    evolve over time.

    Regards,...............

    ********
    I don't understand why they think I am not bona fide. Anybody who can give me an explanation, please?
    I applied with a website about the Great Pyrenees dog breed [up since 1995], which is getting quite good traffic and has a Google SE ranking of 3 0ut of 287,000, www.greatpyrenees.com

    thanks for listening :-))

    Email the advertiser and ask them to reconsider.

    Probably rejected because of your residence in netherlands.

    but CJ bounced him -- does the url look like a personal homepage?

    I tried to load the site but I'm getting an error message. I looked at Google's cache and the site looks very nice!

    Maybe CJ couldn't get into the site and that's why you weren't accepted. They can't accept what they can't see. In the meantime check out some of the other networks. Good luck!

    Yes, both the sites listed load for me and are very nice sites! CJ is missing out on a publisher that can send qualified pet traffic if they are rejecting this site and others like it.

    It doesn't look like a personal site. Perhaps they clicked on the CafePress store instead of the main web site. In which case they need to be educated on the amount of traffic these targeted premium stores can send. I have stats

    Did you apply at BeFree? They have the PetSmart program. But the Pet Care Central program at Commission Junction is the best

    Hey Deborah,

    thanks for the compliments :-))

    Akiva from Pet Care Central sent me a contact e-mail address of somebody from CJ. I mailed them and will see what the answer is. So far I only applied for CJ and Shareasale. But will have a look at BeFree.

    Thanks, Urs [esquiou]
