    Angry Miles Kimball & The Home Marketplace Abusing OrangeLinks
    They uploaded nearly 300 links each into the feed and most of them were generic words like "Bath" etc, these were also doubled up many times.

    There is no need for merchants to abuse this great service, I deleted every single one of their promotions after I seen this plus none except only one promotion from each had an expiry date.

    This should only be for promotions and not generic terms and there is really no need for them to do this. I wonder who their affiliate manager is, they should be disciplined by the company manager for this.

    I'm tossing up whether to even continue to promote both of these merchants now who obviously must be managed by the same person who must have absolutely no idea on affiliate marketing.

    Maybe Performics can offer another Orangelink feed for generic links.?

    I'll find out what happened there. Was there a promo type for those links? If so, what was it?

    You can filter your feed so that you only receive links with a promo type. That might reduce the volume of these types of links.

    Are OrangeLinks supposed to send all new links (if you select everything), or just certain types? I always assumed it was all.
