Several weeks ago I received an email from Google related to some changes to Google Affiliate programs. I have a Google Affiliate account and had been approved to be an affiliate for businesses such as The Sportsman’s Guide and Cabela’s. I have not really done much with it and now I certainly will not.
Basically Google will not pay out for certain firearm related affiliate sales. This is very disappointing and along with online mega-giant eBay is another example of anti-gun policies within big corporations.
The Sportman’s Guide actually changed affiliate company’s and sent me an invitation to be involved – which I accepted.
I will no longer have anything to do with Google affiliate, Adsense or related products. It is an unfortunate reality that Google is THE search engine on the Internet….at least right now. So from a marketing aspect I have to pay attention to it.
My two cents.
