    I'm considering switching my featured links for new books from Amz to B&N for several reasons. Anyone know the current status of B&N regarding parasites?

    I see mixed messages coming from Amz. with Igive being dropped but Huntbar and other toolbar spyware being featured as associates. From strictly a parasite viewpoint, does B&N have a tough policy/track record?

    Thanks.

    Adam,

    We did try Powells. I wrote a script to access their data and featured their links without a single sale for about a month. I don't know if any commissions were hijacked. They don't offer much of a stats function. I suspect the poor response is due to less name-recognition and higher prices. I like Powells but reluctantly had to put Amazon back as the primary link. (We do have to make a few bucks to keep the sites afloat, even in a sea of parasites.)
    Now I'd like to give B&N a chance if it doesn't mean opening us up to more parasite risk than we currently enjoy.
