    Question Where can I research about an Affiliate ToolBar
    Where can I research about an affiliate tool bar?

    Somebody contacted me and wanted to join my program and he told me that he promotes it via a tool bar.
    That is usually a red flag for me but I want to find out more about the toolbar before I make a judgement call.

    From the website. Name of company has been masked to protect confidentiality and abide by the ABW rules.

    That's more than just one red flag, the word toolbar is most of the times enough to click the reject button. if you need motivation to reject the applicant, just re-read what you included in the quote box!

    Hey Eric,

    I posted this thread http://forum.abestweb.com/showthread.php?t=79580
    on Cleaning Resources, all (except SiteAdvisor) should have information on known affiliate toolbars and help you make the decision on this particular affiliate.

    Just for those who are following this, I rejected the affiliate but did not announce it till I spoke to somebody from AffFairPlay:-

    The domain is
    SHOPBIZdotCOM

    The software is
    SearchEssistant
    E-ssistant

    Date of Origin
    August, 2006

    Research about the software:
    http://research.sunbelt-software.com...threatid=43865

    The domain was very popular at one time and was sold and bought by major corp before the dot-com bust.
