Just would like to open up some discussion regarding this. I was one of the affiliates a good few years ago that was partly (amongst other variable correlations) hit by this. Do some of you not touch anything to do with Google? Even with privacy on domains? Or is it something of the past? I'm really thinking about money sites. Is it necessary to be a part of Googles system? Or is it for the best not to be. Conducting some research at the moment but would love to hear others opinions. An old friend of mine didnt even use Gmail he was that against any data being possibly used (5 years ago). Thanks in advance for any debate or evidence.
