    I thought that was just another word for corporate "journalists" on television.

    LOL. I love it!

    Unfortunately, the way search engines work, if we have websites and want linkpop for rankings and traffic, we have to become Linkwhores. I can relate. uke:

    It scares me a bit that you work for an ad network and this is the first post you dug up.

    turning it around like that implies you perform something worthwhile (trick).... before the click. Guess your right as on some crowded street corners you do see at lot of Adwhore's competing for attention being paraded by their pimps everywhere you turn. In both professions (Advertising & Whoring) that's called "turning a trick".

    Now you see why both professions want to charge upfront for perceived value even if it turns out to be a case of putting "perfume on a pig" ... or drag queen

    Well, I'm new to all of this..... realized I was spending waaaay too much time in front of the computer without enough output and that I was in desperate need of help and guidance.

    I found ABW, and very shortly after, this post.

    I do believe I have found my 'affiliate support group' home!!!!! You guys rock!

    I'm amazed this almost 4 year old thread popped back up. LOL

    After working what seems like forever and not making more than a few dollars from my pages, I gave up, stopped trying, and let most of my stuff expire. Now I'm back, and I've decided I just might work on becoming an adwhore to make a little money. It's really sux being broke ALL the time.
