It’s been almost 2 year since we did the last survey of CPA Networks. It seemed at the time that the industry was changing so fast and that networks were falling off left and right. The idea that continuing to do a survey, when it was possible that one of the top 10 would disappear right after the results were published, was borderline ridiculous. Now the industry seems to have hit a point of maturity (at least for the time being) where a lot less networks are going out of business and more importantly, affiliates are a lot smarter.
Again, we decided after much discussion to continue with ranking the networks purely based on votes. It seemed to me that while some companies and publications were doing this surveys with insider panels, giving preferences to advertisers first, and even stranger allowing months and months to vote and manipulate the system, we’d do things a lot differently. We released the survey to our readers and only allowed the networks two weeks to promote to their affiliates. This wasn’t about how many affiliates they could drive, or how many friends in the industry were on some secret “panel” of experts that tipped the scales. It was mainly about what our readers and the affiliates felt of the network they were working with.
The results are interesting to say the least. Here are the top 10:
