USFreeads Bans Affiliate Marketing

Last Update: January 03, 2015

So formerly friendly site USFreeads (as of January 1st 2015) is no longer accepting affiliate ads of any kind on their site. A few years back they banned straight re-direct ads to clickbank, so one would suppose an all-out ban would be possible... but yeesh! They are after all a subscription (pay) advertising site... and affiliate marketers are some of the best customers of that business model... I guess that won't be the case anymore. Adios USFreeads, wonder how long the new business model will be viable for you.

I hadn't heard of this yet but reading this and the discussion, especially your comment that it is owned by Google makes it an interesting and thought provokimg subject!

It's an idiotic move if you ask me. Somebody just has a boner against Affiliateering, and is making a poor business choice based on prejudice.

One need only remember that USFreeads is owned by Google to understand the reasoning behind the new stand against affiliates there...

Will have to see what they do about grandfathered content... once those ads start getting deleted I think their revenue stream is done for.
