What's an affiliate network? – Marco Demaio Aug 20 '10 at 16:59
An affiliate network manages relationships between publishers (content websites) and advertisers (people who want to advertise and sell product to the audience of those websites) – Michael Teper Aug 20 '10 at 17:48
As of your explanation Google Adsense ia an affiliate program. – Marco Demaio Sep 1 '10 at 13:48
Adsense is a cost per click (CPC) program, not an affiliate program. – Dan Gayle Sep 1 '10 at 16:26

Thanks Dan! Do you have personal experience with these? Pros / cons? – Michael Teper Sep 3 '10 at 0:10
It wouldn't be fare to really say, because I work for one of them :p – Dan Gayle Sep 7 '10 at 16:59
Google Affiliate Network which is a subset of Google Adsense. Easy to use from my experience with new publishers added weekly. – Gup3rSuR4c Oct 30 '10 at 20:30

I use Amazon Affiliate Program on one of my websites, and find their aStore (iframe shop in your website) especially interesting.

But in general, when you have a product that you are writing about -- try going to the company webpage and check if they have a link to their affiliate program at the bottom.

Most big companies use CommissionJunction, some smaller ones use Google Affiliate Network ... but there are hundreds of those out there. The important bit is to read the terms of service and note what will you be getting from the clicks on the affiliate links.

Adscluster: They have a wide range of publishers, tailored websites and blogs and they pay great comissions to affiliates. Contextua: They have an innovative way of advertising via linking words. Google Affiliate Network: Easy to use though comissions are poor.
