After seeing the success of CJ.com, Linkshare.com, ShareASale.com people were expecting that Google would be launching itself in this domain in the near future. Google took its first step by acquiring DoubleClick Performics Affiliate operations in March 2008. Performics now acts as part of the Google Affiliate Network.
If you would like to apply for the Google Affiliate Network then please make sure of the following main points:
1. Your website should have considerable traffic.
2. You should know how to convert visitor traffic.
For more details you can head off to their page and read the FAQ.
How should I know if my website has good traffic?
Easy! You can check the amount of traffic on your website using Google Analytics. It gives you complete details on the pageview, hits, unique visitors etc.
Google may just be entering this field but seeing the success of Adwords, Adsense and other products I feel that they will give a good run for their money to the giants.
Let’s see what happens.
