    I spent a couple of months late last year building an affiliate site for a niche I am interested in.

    Didn't do much at the time due to other commitments so I just let it sit there for a while and thought I would just get back into it in the new year, how wrong was I.

    Logged into my affiliate account this morning and the site I planned on promoting has closed their affiliate program!!!!!!

    Now I understand why people just stick with amazon and their lousy commission rates rather than independent retailers. Gotta update all my links now.

    :(

    It's quite common.

    A lot of companies will run an affiliate offer for 6 months, work out what the top affiliates are doing, clone it then end the offer...

    Get used to it :)

    Nice try to know OPs niche.

    @sturose you should have some way to update your links, e.g. you should set up a redirect page on your website and link to it whenever you want to do an affiliate link. Or just use TDS.

    You forgot the shirt off my back!

    @joe15 It was a small independent retailer so not really of interest to post here. The affiliate site I use has been going for years but affiliate programs come and go.

    But it hurts so bad!!:D

    I'm working on it now, shouldn't take more than a couple of hours but the commission rates being offered were far better than amazon.
