Article proves only Market Leverage, Commission Junkie, Clickbank are legitimate affiliate marketing ad networks
According to Website Magazine, no top affiliate marketing ad network did not make their top 50 of legitimate alternatives to the big three search engines of Yahoo, Google, and MSN.

Now this makes me think, they said that these were the top click per action (CPA) networks. I always thought affiliate marketing ad networks were part of this. So…if that is the case, why are there no affiliate ad networks listed here. The only one that would come close is Clickbank and Market Leverage. I do see Commission Junkie, ShareASale, PayPopUp, and so on. I don’t see any Hydra, Never Blue, etc. Why not? Am I thinking these alternatives should not belong? Are they not part of the same category? It seems Market Leverage is the only legitimate one I see.
Personally, I would think they would be part of my marketing mix if they were to be considered. When you even look at this list, it is quite competitive as it includes Ad Brite, Kontera, Burst Media, Max Bounty, 7 Search, etc. There are so many more I don’t even know. Remember we are not even considering kingpins Google, Yahoo, or MSN.
So, if Market Leverage is the only one that is legitimate, are the others just dead wood and a waste of time? Are they garbage as they only offer spammy product? Website Magazine ranks these based on Internet search popularity.
It seems to me the affiliate ad networks that I thought were the ‘best’ did not even register on this list. That is kind of sad but based on what Website Mahazine says:
“Perhaps the most challenging aspect of assembling a list of alternative providers is they are not all exclusively pure-play ad networks. For example, one might provide services for both affiliate marketers and advertisers or specialize in a particular ad serving medium, such as mobile or pop-ups. Considering the limitations, what is illuminated here is the exposure these companies receive among their prospective clients. It is equally important to remember that most advertising networks cannot exist without content partners or affiliate publishers. In the end, the strength (quality and volume) of a network’s traffic is a key element to success, and how every network should be measured.”
So this goes out to your drug sniffing affiliate ad networks, without quality content partners or affiliate publishers you are nothing. Too bad you never got back to me when I applied. This only proves how illegitimate you all are with the exception of Market Leverage.
It seems one can conclude I was right, most affiliate ad networks have proven to be pure rubbish after all. The only ones that are legitimate are Commission Junkie, Clickbank, and Market Leverage.
