    Hey guys,

    So, I was thinking about saving up for an affiliate storefront, but I came across this article which strongly convinced me not to.

    Top 3 Reasons to Abandon Your Affiliate Storefront in 2012

    My main question I guess is, how are we affiliate marketers going to survive?

    Is sounds like the only way to get some G00gle lovin' is to start making and selling your own products.

    This whole article is "Google...google...google...blaaaaaahhh" and most isn't accurate.

    Sure, abandon your affiliate sites if you believe every blog post you read, or remember that there are plenty of sources for traffic that don't start with Goo.

    Find other sources of traffic than just the Big G and i am sure you will have some kind of success with affiliate websites.

    Target longtail keywords and redirect the traffic towards your storefront.
