    Slight Change in Title--a hassle?
    If I want to change part of the title of my main site or one of my other sites can I just do that without notifying CJ, LS, SAS, etc.?

    I would be keeping the same url[s] in tact.

    I feel if I keep the same url and a major word within the title that it doesn't matter if I alter the title just a bit.

    I think that notifying one of the companies that I either truncated or expanded or worded a title slightly differently would be a hassle. So I'm just going to go ahead and not worry -- unless someone in the know urges me to do otherwise.

    Any change I make would be in compliance with any TOS etc...

    This question btw is inspired by the convoluted forms at LS and the mistake on their part back in October -- I don't want to go through that again.

    Is that supposed to cause problems?????

    I recently changed url and title of my main site on all 3 networks.
    Maybe I got lucky or maybe I am so low under the radar that no one noticed.

    . It worked without a hitch.


    PS.....I did not bother to notify any one.

    Thanks, Witzer. One of the networks includes a title change line in its form but I'm afraid to use it

    I'm going to follow your example

    They don't really keep up with the titles etc. of your sites. I have a site called xxxxx and the links are for site yyyyy and show up as if they were referred from the xxxxx site. This was because I changed domains and never changed the links.
    I don't think this is a big deal at all Rhia.

    This question seemed familiar:

    Nothing to worry about anywhere.

    AM's primarily look at the URL when approving affiliate applications. If there is something weird about the title I may look deeper. I would warn about a redirect going to a different URL in the application. That would raise a red flag.

    From what I am reading here I would say you shouldn't have any to worry about!!

    Thanks, Chuck. I don't think my titles are weird.
    I never publish pages that are X-Rated or anything that I would object to.

    Linkshare still seems to group merchants (for link creating) according to original titles I gave my sites and I don't want to complicate things -- I hesitate to modify any form at LS because last October they accused me of a voluntary deactivation (false, I never intended to deactivate myself) -- so I guess that's the subliminal fear.

    Also, I'd just like to take my sites and give each a different focus than what was in the beginning (in terms of content).

    Thanks for the encouragement. I also like knowing what the AMs "primarily" look at -- thanks again.
