So you think you're getting rich with web affiliate schemes, and Google? You're giving away your web space in exchange for a percentage of a sale? From where I'm standing it looks like a huge rip-off to the benefit of the advertiser. If you're paying attention to what's happening, you might think different. July 23, 2015
