    Angry Merchants who don't deserve my traffic
    This is hilarious.

    I joined an indie program which has lots of products I can sell but haven't found elsewhere. They don't have product links and all their banner and text links dump traffic on their index page. Not useful to me.

    So I spent a half hour tinkering with their code to see if I could figure out how to get my traffic to a specific product page with cookie intact. I wrote to the AM (who I believe is also the owner) explaining what I wanted to do and showing him an example of the code I developed.

    ONE MONTH LATER I hear back from him. His reply...

    "Should work."

    Well I'm scratching that merchant off my list. He apparently couldn't even be bothered to test it and his two sentence reply that took a month to compose doesn't inspire my confidence. Why do these merchants develop aff programs when they're clearly not motivated to put any effort into it? And why should we bother when they don't care?

    Heh.

    I remember once I had a drawn-out message thread with the uBid affiliate manager trying to get him to see that they needed links to more than just the main uBid categories. Sigh. Never did sink in.
