Last week I posted a note how my Amazon.com account ended. There I mentioned my attempt to set up a Barnes and Noble account as a substitute. Well, that didn’t live long. I received this email from them today:
Thank you for your continued support of the Barnes & Noble Affiliate Program. Barnes & Noble has made the decision to terminate their Affiliate Program with Google Affiliate Network effective Tuesday, August 9, 2011. An email from Barnes & Noble with additional details regarding the program transition will be sent shortly if you have not received communication yet. As part of that transition, please be sure to remove all Google Affiliate Network Barnes & Noble creative and/or links from your website by this date.
Barnes & Noble has a session based cookie duration so you will not receive commissions for any activity generated through your links after August 9th, 2011.
Thank you for your valuable participation in the program and for being a great affiliate partner. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Barnes & Noble.
Barnes & Noble
I might sign up when they figure out how to do it without Google.
