Adware and Parasites - CJ (Commission Junction) Cleans House?

    Just blogged about this yesterday but its good news to know so thought I would post it here.

    According to a recent article in MarketWatch CJ dropped the infamous 180Solutions earlier this year and is tightening the noose around other parasite and adware type affiliates. Jeff Pullen, EVP says only 5% of revenue at CJ comes from download applications (ie. adware). I think many affiliates and managers would dispute that number.

    "180Solutions was in violation of our code of conduct," said Pullen. "They were kicked out," earlier this year… An affiliate of 180Solutions, Seismic, was sued by the FTC for unfair and deceptive marketing practices…"

    Here is the MarketWatch article about it.

    Great news! Nice to see companies realizing they could get in trouble for dealing with them.

    Out with ALL parasiteware, the affiliates will be much happier and the merchants will benefit lots as well. It's a win-win situation but I can't see a total eradication anytime soon.

    It's kind of odd that they let 180solutions stay for more than a week, their stuff sucks. :(
