Default Re: ClickXChange Help

Hi all, first time poster, long time reader ... I was hoping someone could give me advice regarding ClickXChange Affiliate programs. I started up an affiliate program there about a month ago, I've approved over 20 affiliates, but none of them seem to want to put up my links, save one site. The set rate is .05, which I thought was pretty good ....

Is this normal ? I've been pretty selective regarding which sites I accept, usually only about 1 out of 7 or 10, so maybe I just need to be less selective about matching my content to the content of the affiliate. I've been mostly only accepting humanities-related sites. To accept more affiliates though I would probably have to lower the commission rate.

Thanks in advance for the advice ...

My feelings are that affiliate networks/program managers should "not" reject/cancel sites except maybe adult sites, those committing fraud, promoting hatred, etc..

You create bad Karma and potential negative word-of-mouth by rejecting/canceling sites. I personally build sites around affiliate programs or themes thus I often even don't even have a site built when I apply for an affiliate program. I honestly feel that affiliate programs/networks that reject sites left and right "just don't get it".
