    I'm sure may of you are like me in that submissions to Overture often get rejected due to affiliate links.

    Well, yesterday I was at a small conference at Amazom's headquarters where the VP of marketing for overture was presenting and he really got torn into about this issue.

    The end result was that he was going to go away and look at a new/consistant approach towards affiliate sites.

    My impression of the way the "discussion" went was that it would lead to a more consistant way of applying Overture's listing rules to affiliate such so that affiliate links weren't a negative/disqualifying factor and so that good affiliate sites that provide original quality content could get listed in Overture aseasily as a comparable quality site that sold their own products.

    154 Yes, I'm sure that they will lighten up a little now that they are charging a minimum of 10cents per click.... SO... sure... good affiliate links = acceptable content to pay 10 cents per click.... MINIMUM!!!!!!!!!

    If we don't get some kool rules ourselves...... pronto........ then we'll just be bogus too.. ~Jeff Spicoli~

    They said they raised the .10 minmum for business reasons. I hope their editors lighten up on affiliates after this Amazon meeting they got torn into . Mark it was good meeting you I hope you had a good time here in Seattle.
