    Did anyone see this email which congratulated Buyersport on winning a GC for having the greatest increase in % of click throughs for Boscov's? Does anyone know Boscov's position on this?

    Maria,

    Wurldmedia is in 100% compliance with all the networks.

    As longg as all those clicks came from the Buyersport domain ..not mine..then let the sleeze bags using their copyright theftwarez for porn and music file sharing get some click awards. I just hope this merchant had to pay the search engine PPC click fee plus a commission to Buyersport to teach them an expensive lesson.

    I encourage you to contact you AMs when this type of thing happens. I also received the email from Boscovs, and responded detailing the risks of partnering with former and potentially future parasites.

    I explained my stance, sent references to the associated references, including the NY Times article, and expressed my displeasure.

    I did not threaten any ultamatium, I do not tell them how to run their business, I just gave the facts, and I expect the AM over at Boscovs to make a decision. Weither or not they keep them is their decision. It will help if more than one affiliate contacts them about this issue. I encourage you to do the same.

    What does this mean? (That they are in compliance with each network's TOS?)

    In my original email, I also invited the AM to take a look in here. I did not have a contact name at the time, but I was very impresed that I received a response this morning (sent the email late Monday night). In it, it was stated that they are looking into it. Every little bit helps out.

    Once again, we have the responsibility to inform our partners of these "activities." Communication is the key here, and it does not always have to always be the merchants contacting us, we can and should contact them as well.

    Just because these parasites are bringing in sales, does not necessarily mean the relationship they have with the merchant is a fruitful one. But if they do not know that this is the case, how can we hold them at fault?

    My point is here that we are all busy, if we know they have these relationships, and do not tell them, we do not have the right to complain. I know they are responsible for the partners they approve, but ask any AM how many applications they get and how difficult that is to go through.

    Maria,

    No, I do not believe that WhenU is.

    Jimbo,

    It means that they do not overwrite affiliate links.

    I emailed Boscov's and they were kind enough to get back to me, saying they are collecting their thoughts on the issue and will respond soon. It was just upsetting that out of 3 GC's they gave out, 2 went to known parasites. I'm wondering if Boscov's truly has no clue about the parasite issue, otherwise they wouldn't have broadcast their associations with these sites!
