i'm new to affiliate marketing and i hope someone can answers my questions. i signed up with linkshare and while some companies approved me, some reject my application upon applying because i don't have the "necessary requirements". unless those companies want a crapload of traffic, i don't see what else it would be other than being based in canada. i'm going to e-mail these companies personally, but i don't expect much from that. another canada-related question: some companies have canadian websites, and are signed up with linkshare both with the usa website and the canadian one. it's unspecified in their profiles, but should i assume that if i sign up with the canadian program, then only sales from the canadian website count, and not the american one? if so, how do you get around this? seems ridiculous to me. i couldn't apply to the usa company. these are my main concerns so far. thanks to anyone who can help out.
