Google Affiliates retiring

Hello,
I have been at this for over a year and the one company I have made money with is unfortunetly with Google Affiliates and when I e-mailed them to tell them Google Affiliates is retiring and to ask what they are doing to replace them I have had no reponse.

I am thinking of applying to another company. One problem I have with that is that most of my traffic comes from backlinks in their discussion group. I was wondering if I would be eligible for a commission from a consumer that comes to my website from that discussion group and then clicks on my link to purchase something on the site they were just on before coming to me?

Hi tcoco_architect,

You get a commission each time a consumer purchases through your link, regardless of where they came from or which link the clicked on to get to your site. I suggest you look at other affiliate networks, like Commission Junction, ShareASale or Clickbank.

Hope that helps. Have a good day!

Is the company still paying you? It's always best to contact the affiliate company first. If they are unreachable, I suggest you look for alternatives just like what Cecille suggested.

Commission Junction or CJ has so many merchants that you would have every opportunity to choose the best ones (based on the pay per lead criterion) and upload their banners on to your website.
