Now is the time to join a reputable, high-paying affiliate network. The longer the recession looms, the more individuals and businesses will be turning to online sources of revenue. And that means more opportunities for merchants and affiliates alike. There are millions of affiliate marketers working online right now and millions more will be coming online soon.

Affiliate marketing features few if any start-up costs, low barriers to entry, and carries with it the potential for extraordinarily high payouts. Aspiring Web publishers might have the ease of contextual programs like Google’s AdSense, or the hundreds of possible alternatives, but most will ultimately turn to more customizable options.

But do not delay. The only thing you have to fear is...less revenue. This edition of Website Magazine features 50 of the top affiliate networks on the Internet. Readers are sure to be familiar with many of those listed (either using them currently or having done so in the past) or were exposed to them through the routine course of running a Web business. If the affiliate network you use is absent from this list, fear not; what is really important is the trustworthiness of the network (whether they pay, and pay on time) and the number and quality of merchants and their offers.

As an aside, Website Magazine intentionally left out two heavy hitters in the world of affiliate marketing; Google (and the Google Affiliate Network) and Amazon (Amazon Associates). There are few programs that match these offerings in industry momentum, mindshare and reach. These programs may rule, but it doesn’t mean they’re right for you. You might also notice the absence of contextual networks, PPC search engine ad networks and MLM programs. While there may be a place for those somewhere on a list of ways to generate website revenue, we’ve included only pure-play, first tier affiliate networks — those that cater to both merchants and publishers.

Research for this report comes courtesy of Ranking.com, the Web’s largest provider of website popularity metrics and detailed website information on more than one million Internet destinations.

This is one of the most rediculous and worthless rankings I've ever seen. You put CJ.com traffic chart but what you don't realize is that their traffic goes through other tracking urls and not cj.com....Ourfreestuff is a network? Sounds like an incentive traffic provider. All around very misleading. The only thing merchants have to fear is rampant fraud issues and no affiliate transparency.

I understand why you don't include Google and Amazon. But the article doesn't even mention the eBay Partner Network, on or off the list. Why is that? It's one of the biggest and most succesful......

Peter A. Prestipino 04-17-2009 9:15 AM

Good question Sallie, we left eBay off the list as the company's primary business model is not affiliate marketing but rather auctions. The "business" of those on the list is affiliate marketing.

I realize this discussion is a little old now, but I'll ask anyway. What are the criteria used by Ranking.com to make this selection. It is not valuable information if we don't understand the metrics that they are using. If there is a link you can provide, that would be great.

- The most powerful alternative to AdSense on the web, get paid massive commissions per sale instead of tiny amounts per click
