    What a LS Rep Said About Synergy Analytics
    "LinkShare's rep Liane Dietrich's answers were careful and measured. There wasn't a lot of talk about their technology outside of another mention of their Synergy Analytics -- which she downplayed as a solution designed for affiliates and merchants and instead used a great deal by their internal team to mine statistics -- an odd admission I thought."

    Totally odd. Maybe because Synergy is crap....

    Trust, thanks for the links to the blog. Very interesting. Always thought the SA was more for them than me.

    The old reports were simple and gave me just want I needed to know.

    I put all my data in my own data base once a week and it gives me the info I need in a format that I like. Also across networks. So SA is redundant for me.

    I think there's just too much there personally. It's not a bad tool, it's just daunting and looks like it would take more time to master than I have to devote to it.

    It could be a phenomenal tool for analytics. Unfortunately, most of us just need reporting.

    The main interest of LinkShare was to build a tool for them, not for us. A tool allowing them to datamine our clicks. These people are making a living from our work, they charge us (or our merchants) for this service but instead of helping us, they just lie and steal from us. Nice job, LinkShare. We know why SynergyAnalytics is such a monster.

    Now if they could take some of that brain power that produced SA and focus it on faster payments to affs, better link inventory management and distribution and figuring out that my email works and doesn't need revalidating every few days...
