Maxbounty takes a Stance on Myspace Promotion

Posted on October 31, 2006 in Affiliate Information, Affiliate Networks  

I received this email from Maxbounty today.

 I am sending you this e-mail today to update you on MaxBounty’s position with respect to advertising on MySpace.

While we have been allowing affiliates to advertise MaxBounty campaigns through
their personal MySpace profiles with the provision that they were not phishing or
spamming other MySpace profiles, our recent efforts working with MySpace directly
has shown that too many people are breaking the rules. Coupled with the fact that
MySpace expressly forbids commercial activity of any type in their terms of service,
we have decided to change our position on MySpace advertising.

Effective immediately, MaxBounty’s affiliate terms and conditions will be updated to
prohibit advertising of any type through MySpace accounts. This includes, but is not
limited to, advertising via bulletins, comments, mail, profiles or any other area of
a MySpace account. Any affiliate caught violating these terms run the risk of having
their MaxBounty accounts terminated.

Looks like no more myspace promotion of Maxbounty offers, plain and simple. So if you did or use links you may want to remove them immediately.

    It was only a matter of time – any other affiliate programs who aren’t do this soon will. Myspace is a spam wasteland these days, which I’m sure they’re none to happy about.

    This just means can you cant link directly from MySpace to an MB offer, but if you have re-directs. You should be fine?

    No this mean you cannot use maxbounty offers for promotion on myspace even if you use a redirect url.
