Affiliate Network To Fork Over $2 Million to FTC for Acai Ads
Wanted to send along another warning to affiliates to be careful who you partner with AND be careful how you promote affiliate products. There was a big rash of crackdowns and busts a couple years ago on Acai affiliates, many of whom were using those fake news sites to promote their wares.

Get Wise Affiliate Marketing âItâs Googleâs Way or the Highway
Google controls so much of the Internet marketing ecosystem. Like it or not, affiliates have to play Google's way or it's the highway. I recently had an affiliate program manager contact me to say they needed to cancel their 5 Star affiliate promotion campaign and close their affiliate program because their affiliates were hit so hard by Panda. So there is a trickle down affect to Google's actions and it affects everyone, even me. So I thought I'd share a couple recent articles that may be helpful in learning to play the game Google's way.

Major CPA Affiliate Networks Crashing and Burning âHere are some Reasons Why
So what is shaking up the industry and causing all these problems?

I've really never liked the CPA industry much because so much of it is spammy, scammy, get rich quick offers, incentive offers and freebies.
