The truth is much more complicated. It’s true that affiliate programs can be sources of phantom revenue and off-brand promotion. But managed properly, they can also make up 5-15 percent of online revenue and have an ROI among the highest of any online channel. CMOs are realizing that affiliate marketing can be an important part of their arsenal and are integrating the channel into their overall marketing strategies.
Spam is the biggest threat to organic search engines, whose goal is to provide quality search results for keywords or phrases entered by their users. Google's PageRank algorithm update ("BigDaddy") in February 2006—the final stage of Google's major update ("Jagger") that began in mid-summer 2005—specifically targeted spamdexing with great success. This update thus enabled Google to remove a large amount of mostly computer-generated duplicate content from its index.[29]

Not so sure on that, yet, Stuart! I need to do the research first to make sure there are enough products to be showcasing in any niche I'm considering.Thinking about maybe IQ/Brain testing, teasing and training games, devices, gadgets, tricks. Tons of freebies to share in this area, all sorts of questionnaires, interesting visual oddities and quirks, optical illusions, etc. What there'd also need to be are really enticing products to click the merchant site links on. Or sex accessories, just the really bizarre ones. In either case (or any other), I'm thinking (building on what you said about how people don't buy, but they share, and the idea is to get them onto the merchant site - e.g. Amazon) that if people click through to product sites, well, I myself have experienced being drawn to something strange (and expensive), shying away from purchasing it, but having some of that purchaser glow translate into my buying something cheaper and more basic from the site.
