Keyword Bidding

Keyword bidding on search engines such as Google, Yahoo, MSN, and others is a great way to gain instant traffic to your website.

The only request of you that we make is that you do not bid on our trademark names or renditions thereof. We police keyword bidding on the below terms regularly, and in order to remain in compliance with our terms of service, we’d like to remind you of the following restrictions on keyword bidding:

Restricted Vendors

Some of our vendors are extremely sensitive about how and where their brand names are marketed, and for this reason have demanded that their products are not marketed on affiliate websites. We take a proactive approach to dealing with this by making sure that these restricted vendor products are never included in our datafeeds, but we also need your help to make sure that you do not market them on your website/s. We value our relationships with these vendors, as we value our relationships with affiliates, and by keeping the list of restricted vendors updated, we hope to avoid losing any business partners.
