LinkShare Review

Linkshare is one of the fastest growing affiliate programs on the internet.  They have a lot of big name companies that participate with them, and they seem to be the provider of choice if a company leaves one of the other affiliate programs.

With most of the advertisers you have the option of selecting either links or products.  When you select links, if you end up having multiple websites approved later on you'll want to make sure you select the right...
