    I'm having a pretty tough time figuring out what to do to my site now that they've cut California out of the program.

    What can I do with it now? I just started it a month ago, didn't even have enough time to rank and make a sale.

    It's on page 2 of Google right now for my main keyword, so I need to monetize it soon.

    Setup a LLC in a state where the Associates program is still going and register a new account with them (or maybe transfer it). Problem solved.

    Yeah, it looks like this'll be my easiest option.

    Thanks.

    Why would it just be Amazon, surely Buy.com will follow shortly?

    Yes. As we saw in other states Amazon is on the ball and drops instantly but ALL of the other big boys (including CB, etc.) will drop affiliates within the month. You may still be able to promote small programs or networks where they really need every affiliate and don't mind paying a little extra and just lowering your commission but I would not invest ANY time in a big network because chances are they will drop you very soon here.

    That sucks..

    I know it won't be the same, but you could always put adsense on it - atleast you could make something

    I agree, adsense will be a good alternative
