    I've had bad luck with google raping my adsense earnings (click bombed by a bunch of azzholes and then banned for too many clicks form the same ip) They didn't decide to ban until I was well over $9k in earnings and within a few days of payday..............

    Anyways, anyone using their affiliate program? Having luck with CS?

    The google raped you once and you're thinking of going back for more? "Things that make ya go hmmmm."

    Seriously, there are just so many other aff. networks out there. Why even bother? I wouldn't touch anything labeled "google" with a ten foot pole. I think they're evil and greedy. Of course, that's my own opinion, your mileage may vary.

    I also got my AS account shut off for the very same reason, with no consideration for my explanation and no second chance to block the ass pirates that were click bombing me. I went to the trouble of securing another account but decided against enriching the google any more and haven't used it.

    yeah i completely hate them too, i guess i'll go ahead with it and report how it goes (just adding links to my CS flash script will be about 5 minutes of work so i really don't care if they start drooling on my azz again)

    glad to see people realizing what a nasty machine google is
    multi - billion dollar corporation and no phone support to speak with?
    no personal contacts to talk to even over email?
    no legitimate reasons or proof of allegations for a ban?

    I was very close to throwing a subpoena in their face just so they would settle and give me my money, but you never know who they would love to use as the next "example."

    What stopped you? That would have been awesome. I am getting to the point that I hate Google as well, but Yahoo and MSN do not provide enough traffic. So I guess I will have to put up with the shit until something better comes along.

    Just use a better affiliate network like Hydra, Xy7 etc. You will be thankful you did in the long run. Don't go back to big G
