    eHobbies jumps ship
    Probably nothing new, am learning from these forums, but I seemed to be have been doing well with their datafeed ...

    don't we get a notice if they're changing affiliates?

    btw: jumped to performics!

    : Welcome to ABW!

    You're lucky that you were doing well with them. I don't think anything I ever got from them stuck. I dropped them a long time ago, heard too many negative things about them.

    No loss for CJ, in my opinion.

    My hobby web site is now 100% Adsense. Between eHobbies and Hobbytron, we are lucky to get a sale in 500 clicks. I'll take Adsense nickels and dimes over this any day. I might add eBay to my Hobby site too.

    Yeah, would've been nice if they'd informed their affiliates about the move, especially since I emailed a question earlier in the week and then was promptly terminated from their program without any courtesy of a reason (which I now find is because of the move). I have found another merchant to fill their space and they convert better and pay higher too. eHobbies will never grace my web pages again.

    Well over 15,000 clicks to eHobbies and Hobbytron over 6 years and these wanks couldn't convert 1/1000 between them from dedicated hobby pages. Then they reverse the few sales 6+ months after their made. The shankiest AM's in this industry are all associated with Toy and hobby merchants. Good riddence as they've stunk-up CJ for way too many years, when counting their pathetic performance at Befree.

    They are now at Performics. I sent them an email with a nice note. Nice time to pull out Christmas. They are hoping all the links don't come down.

    Did they leave CJ or are they just in both networks? There are a few merchants that run their programs from 2 or 3 different networks.
