Affiliate Program Directories

By , August 13, 2010

My old list of affiliate-program directories, last updated in 2005, was very stale. I checked each of these Affiliate Program Directory web sites on August 9-13, 2010, and added some ranking factors and some comments (the sequence is roughly based on quality, with the best appearing first)

    This is a wonderful resource for affiliate managers. Thank you so much for putting this together. A number of listings say “No privacy policy” – what does this mean in terms of listing your program here? Does that mean that they can sell your information to other companies?

  2. Mark Welch says:

    That’s such a good question, I’ve posted my reply as a separate blog post:
    Why Is a Privacy Policy Important?

    Note that for an Affiliate Directory (or any content web site), the presence of “essential links” like “Privacy Policy” is probably less important than “indicia of authorship,” or the name(s) of the individuals and companies responsible for the content. Anonymous content is much less credible than content with a clearly-identified author or editor.

  3. Hi Mark,

    Thanks for the link. Tell me, with over 3,000 programs listed you describe Global Affiliate Programs as ‘skimpy’. How many would you like to see?

    George

    I assume that I clicked on one or more of the category links on your site (and either saw few listings, or I recognized some omissions). Looking at the site today, it’s definitely not “skimpy.” I’ve removed that note and pushed your site higher up on the list.

    FYI, your “Google site search” appears to be configured incorrectly — when I try to search your site only, I see external web results, not any links at your site.
