I find it amusing that people are blaming CJ for their own failures.
Just because CJ is failing does not mean the affiliates that left are failing. Many of us are more than making up for any losses elsewhere.

Before the changes CJ was by far my top earner.

Now they're _way_ down on my list... (Still a $$$$$ affiliate on
both my accounts, but that doesn't really mean much...)

Luckily I've been able to compensate with other income sources and it seems I'll have an "all-time high" month in August in terms of affiliate income :-) (It took me more than a month to be able to compensate for the "loss" in CJ earnings, though)

Personally, I mostly used CJ for "low-value" CPA programs and CPC, and this is the reason why I saw this huge drop in income from them. (I do more CPS programs now than I ever did before, but none of them are on CJ)

I'm sure it's very possible to still do great with CJ, and I think those mainly using CJ for CPS programs weren't as much affected by the changes as the rest of us. (In fact, I'm thinking about going through their merchants one of these days to see if I can find some good CPS/high-value CPA programs.)

So, overall I do better than I ever did before, but the changes forced me to "break out" from the "comfort zone" CJ had provided for me from the 1st day I became an affiliate of theirs :-)

I definitely see why the cheap cost per lead programs could not survive on CJ. That was because of CJ changing rates. Low paying high converting programs.

HOWEVER....

These programs are usually not that profitable for their owners, and often they are repackaged CJ offers in themselves.

Now that these have left, CJ has a much cleaner atmosphere.

I think another network would definitely be a great enviornment for these now "homeless" programs but the problem is no other network really has good tracking or reliability. Compare CJ's reliability to Clickxchange, linkshare, fineclicks, shareasale, and affiliate fuel. CJ is the clear winner. Affiliate Fuel looks pretty good though. Some are OK but none too special.
