    Deactivation...
    Just wondering if there was an am or two here who can lend me some insight on why a program would deactivea an affiliate? If you aren't converting, do they deactivate you just to save the per click stats? Site is not offensive or anything so I can only guess it is for nonactivity or such...links are up but no conversions. And there wasn't a reason given for the deactivation...

    that is correct, if you do not perform over a period of time you will be deactivated by some advertisers.

    And yes it is because of performance stats.

    However, if it is an advertiser that you are actively working toward getting sales, just drop them an email and they will probably reactivate you.

    and if that doesn't work, look for their competition . . .

    Strange things can cause "deactivation notices". I bet I'm the only one ever canned from a program, where I helped them grow from 2500 irrate affiliates to over 25,000 mostly happy campers, when trying to challenge & fix their program's plunge back into the toilet. Some AM's take exception when their value-add affiliates challenge them to prove their program converts 10 times worse from targeted affiliate traffic then it does for general SERP and CPM Ad traffic. Most deactivations, without cause, are efforts to coverup poor program performance.

    I got deactivated without notice or explanation from Crucial. Mighty impolite of them. I just let it go and removed all their links as I never got any sales from their banners despite (or perhaps because of) a 1% to 2% click through rate.

    I'll try a Tiger Direct banner in that spot and see how it goes.
    My click through rate with Tiger is ~2+%, sometimes 3+% or higher.

    Hi, ADesertRose

    Your former affiliate merchant may have been a fast-buck money-grubbing
    artist who wasn't willing to stick it out with an obviously new web site.

    Be glad that you are rid of those weaklings.

    By the way, I lived in El Paso for six years until I got grad school fever.
    It was the best time of my life! We used to go to visit the Gila Wilderness
    every chance we got. There is something about New Mexico that is
    very special and good!

    Good luck on your web site at:

    Thanks everyone for the posts...I need the extra encouragement at times.

    Radarcat~The New Mexico site is being built right now and that is what we are looking to promote on is the special presence and beauty of NM. It is a very diverse and interesting place to live or vacation in, and I have done both as I am originally from Texas! We live near NM tech.... folks come here for an education and fall in love with it.

    I love NM. We moved to Ohio from NM a few months back to be closer to family and such . Now all I can think of is getting back there.

    It is the Land of Enchantment! They sure got it right when they picked their slogan.

    Suz,
    I have lived in Ohio before, Dublin, and it was beautiful...
    Here in NM I always marvel at the clear open skies and the clean air...I lived in the midst of the chemical refineries in Texas and it was quite different weatherwise as well. I almost laugh here when people say it is so humid! You don't know humid until you live in southeast texas!
