    Talking Buy.com Blocks Google Ads From Affiliate Referred Traffic
    Dear Buy.com Affiliates,

    You spoke, we listened!! At last, Buy.com was able to work with Google the ability to block "sponsored listings" from affiliate referred traffic effective tomorrow. The solution has been tested and placed into production today. Since this is a new functionality, please let us know if you happen to see the ads when visiting our site from yours so that we can resolve any issues with the new feature.

    We appreciate your feedback and value your business. We are doing everything we can to ensure the highest conversion possible from our advertisements on your site.

    Thank you again for your patience and loyalty!

    If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me anytime.

    Melissa

    Last time I looked, there were still quite a few other leaks. Are all of those leaks plugged, or just Google AdSense?

    Unless Buy.com sponsors a free GoldenCan click focusing tool they aren't serious on the conversion issue. They are already a session only merchants with all their leakage and BHO's.

    Now your talking as the sub department feature splits off your huge ecatalog into specific niches an affiliate can build a nice pre-sell page around.
