Affiliate fraud is any type of illegal activity designed with the intention of cheating merchants, other affiliates or buyers. The merchants are at a loss by fraud affiliates that mislead them into paying commissions that they shouldn't be paying. The extent of such practices ranges from repeated clicks on income-generating links of CPC (cost-per-click) programs to using sophisticated software that will simulate human activity.

Latest news: The Starz streaming service is newly available on DirecTV Now for $8 per month. The much-anticipated series “American Gods,” based on the Neil Gaiman book, is now available on the service. Newer original series include “Sweetbitter,” about a 22-year old arriving on New York’s restaurant scene, and “Vida,” about two wildly different Mexican-American sisters returning to their old neighborhood.

I absolutely see the value in affiliate sales (and Pay Flynn is one of the masters at doing this authentically and openly), but I got really turned off it when I saw a lot of bloggers I read and respect writing junky “How to set up a blog” posts that didn’t seem relevant to their audiences purely so that the could get the sweet Bluehost commissions in.
Who it’s best for: Showtime fans. Like HBO Now, this service lets you watch a cable network without the cable. You get all of Showtime’s movies, plus original shows such as “Billions,” “Homeland,” and “The Affair.” If you subscribe to Showtime through your cable provider, Showtime Anytime lets you watch Showtime fare on your phone, tablet, and other devices.
Unicast protocols send a separate copy of the media stream from the server to each recipient. Unicast is the norm for most Internet connections, but does not scale well when many users want to view the same television program concurrently. Multicast protocols were developed to reduce the server/network loads resulting from duplicate data streams that occur when many recipients receive unicast content streams independently. These protocols send a single stream from the source to a group of recipients. Depending on the network infrastructure and type, multicast transmission may or may not be feasible. One potential disadvantage of multicasting is the loss of video on demand functionality. Continuous streaming of radio or television material usually precludes the recipient's ability to control playback. However, this problem can be mitigated by elements such as caching servers, digital set-top boxes, and buffered media players.
There are also software programs -- for purchase and free -- that can submit the same video clip to multiple video-sharing sites simultaneously. Tubemogul is a free Web site that'll submit your clip to all of the major video-sharing sites, then track how many viewers watched the clip on each site. This tracking service is useful when a video clip is part of an advertising or marketing campaign.
The second claim by the plaintiffs was that Napster was actively contributing to copyright infringement since it had knowledge of widespread file sharing on their platform. Since Napster took no action to reduce infringement and financially benefited from repeated use, the Court ruled against the P2P site. The court found that “as much as eighty-seven percent of the files available on Napster may be copyrighted and more than seventy percent may be owned or administered by plaintiffs.”[33]
Don’t put all your eggs in one basket. If you only promote one merchant’s products, you are stuck with their commissions, their landing pages, and ultimately, their conversion rates. It is important to work with many different merchants in your niche and promote a wide range of products. This affiliate marketing strategy will diversify the amount of commissions you make and create a steady stream of revenue when building an affiliate website. 

Well, the way Launch Jacking can be beneficial to you is that you be one of the first ones to release the product(s) before we do. Those who sign up for our Mailbox Money Program will receive a newsletter via their email to announce the latest product approximately 30 days before we actually announce it to the public. This will allow the Jacker at least a month to put up a website and promote the affiliate links that we will provide you in your email.
Latest news: A new Amazon original mystery series called “Homecoming” stars Julia Roberts as a former government caseworker struggling with the truth about her old job. You can also catch a 10-episode anthology series, “Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams.” The company has picked up the sci-fi epic “The Expanse” for a fourth season after its cancellation by the SyFy channel. But perhaps the biggest news is that the company is working on a new “The Lord of the Rings” prequel, which should hit Prime Video by 2021. Also on tap: “The Hunt,” from Oscar winner Jordan Peele, and “Utopia,” from “Gone Girl” author Gillian Flynn.

I’m doing that right now but only got a two day head start. I’m still hoping to make page one of Google. I think it’s going to be big. A website building platform that does everything – including capturing email’s and being able to send unlimited emails out. No need to pay Aweber or anyone else anymore. One site that does everything for one low price. Can’t beat it! This is also my first campaign so I have no email list so I’m relying on Google.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which took effect on May 25, 2018, is a set of regulations governing the use of personal data across the EU. This is forcing some affiliates to obtain user data through opt-in consent (updated privacy policies and cookie notices), even if they are not located in the European Union. This new regulation should also remind you to follow FTC guidelines and clearly disclose that you receive affiliate commissions from your recommendations. 

That’s a great tip Sean, thanks! I was thinking about what you said in your post about some companies not putting that they have affiliate links and you having to do some digging and there are couple of companies/authors who made products I love and keep using, but I’m not sure how to go ahead and ask about the affiliate link. I read the post you linked below about asking for guest blogging, which I thought was a must-read, and so, if you think of doing a follow-up on this one, would love to read some of your tips and do’s and don’t about this. Thanks again, Sean, you’re doing some very inspiring work here!
Technical Document Released by the Alliance’s Privacy and Protection Working Group; Alliance Continues Advancement and Growth with Addition of New Board Members FREMONT, Calif., July 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — The Streaming Video Alliance (the Alliance), an industry forum solving challenges to improve the video experience, today announced the publication of a technical document that provides considerations for implementing forensic watermarking

Parma Video Player can play files of various formats and also supports video streaming via its ‘Open URL’ tool. The video player also supports touch controls like swipe gestures, which makes it a joy to use Parma Video Player. Apart from that, you also have the facility to view your media files during playback, which is also a very useful addition. And hey, you won’t experience any lag or stutter while using Parma Video Player, so peace of mind is an assurance. However, the only trade-off for a slick and fast UI is that customization and deep playback tools are missing from the software.


Video sharing is a doorway for imaginative and gifted people to put their ideas on display with the help of their video cameras or video enabled digital cameras. Web Video or online video sharing, as its commonly known, has become so popular these days that any information (be it personal or otherwise, pertaining to music videos, travel, science experiments, comedy, TV shows, film clips, sports clips, blogs, etc.) can be shared with Internet users by uploading the files to free or paid services. Surveys indicate that reading traditional media, such as newspapers and books, is significantly down due to the proliferation of video sharing software on the Internet. Who knew that video sharing would become even more popular than reading!
The natural evolution on the Internet from text and pictures is to video. Video quality and video sharing software on the Internet has improved by leaps and bounds as underlying technologies like operating systems, browsers and browser plug-ins have evolved. Fundamentally, video delivery on the 'net involves streaming the content live or storing it as files for later playback. While stored video files that can be downloaded and played later have been around for a while, improvements in bandwidth have made streaming video sharing software a well-established technology.
I love You-tube it's full of varied videos lot's of different content but it seems google are trying to upset 90% of it's you tube users by forcing them to have a google plus pages , I can no longer comment on you tube videos until I accept the T&C's of having a google plus page which I don't even want , it's seems not enough people were using google plus so they decided to MAKE people use it ( not really the way to go )
IP Multicast provides a means to send a single media stream to a group of recipients on a computer network. A multicast protocol, usually Internet Group Management Protocol, is used to manage delivery of multicast streams to the groups of recipients on a LAN. One of the challenges in deploying IP multicast is that routers and firewalls between LANs must allow the passage of packets destined to multicast groups. If the organization that is serving the content has control over the network between server and recipients (i.e., educational, government, and corporate intranets), then routing protocols such as Protocol Independent Multicast can be used to deliver stream content to multiple Local Area Network segments. As in mass delivery of content, multicast protocols need much less energy and other resources, widespread introduction of reliable multicast (broadcast-like) protocols and their preferential use, wherever possible, is a significant ecological and economic challenge.[citation needed] Peer-to-peer (P2P) protocols arrange for prerecorded streams to be sent between computers. This prevents the server and its network connections from becoming a bottleneck. However, it raises technical, performance, security, quality, and business issues.
In this short post today I'd like to answer someone's question. He asked me “what is product launch jacking?” I was also asked how you can do it for yourself to get a fair old slice of affiliate marketing action. Product Launch jacking is a term used in the internet marketing industry that people use when they want to describe a method of promoting brand new, as yet, unlaunched products (or services) and making commissions from them.
Hulu impresses as one of the best all-in-one options for cord cutters, given its diverse set of streaming options. In addition to quality original programming, a strong library of classic shows, and a good selection of anime series and movies, Hulu now offers a robust live TV option (more than 60 channels of news, sports, and entertainment programming). Still, Hulu trails some top competitors, given its limited HD and 4K selections. Hulu subscribers also cannot currently download content for offline viewing (an ad-supported solution is supposedly in the works.) However, unlike Netflix and Amazon, which typically get new TV series months or even a year after their TV debuts, Hulu gets some content almost immediately after airing on TV thanks to its big studio backers.
Napster, a peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing network where users could upload and download mp3 files freely, broke all music industry conventions when it launched in early 1999 out of Hull, Massachusetts. The platform was developed by Shawn and John Fanning as well as Sean Parker.[25] In an interview from 2009, Shawn Fanning explained that Napster “ was something that came to me as a result of seeing an sort of an unmet need and the passion people had for being able to find all this music, particularly a lot of the obscure stuff which wouldn’t be something you go to a record store and purchase, so it felt like a problem worth solving.”[26]

In addition to online streaming and screen-casting, ACG Media Player also brings some rich customization features such as font style selection for subtitles, support for gesture set-ups (controls for swipe speed, swipe distance, etc.) and artistic visual effects among others. You can even customize the buttons above the seek bar and the pop-up menu, change their order, remove/add new ones and do a lot more with ACG Player. Adjusting aspect ratio, playback speed, video effects, etc. is also highly convenient, as it can be done from the home screen itself.


The term "streaming" was first used for tape drives made by Data Electronics Inc. for drives meant to slowly ramp up and run for the entire track; the slow ramp times resulted in lower drive costs, making a more competitive product. "Streaming" was applied in the early 1990s as a better description for video on demand and later live video on IP networks. It was first done by Starlight Networks for video streaming and Real Networks for audio streaming. At the time such video was usually referred to as "store and forward video",[7] which was misleading nomenclature.
Affiliate marketing currently lacks industry standards for training and certification. There are some training courses and seminars that result in certifications; however, the acceptance of such certifications is mostly due to the reputation of the individual or company issuing the certification. Affiliate marketing is not commonly taught in universities, and only a few college instructors work with Internet marketers to introduce the subject to students majoring in marketing.[41]
Affiliates discussed the issues in Internet forums and began to organize their efforts. They believed that the best way to address the problem was to discourage merchants from advertising via adware. Merchants that were either indifferent to or supportive of adware were exposed by affiliates, thus damaging those merchants' reputations and tarnishing their affiliate marketing efforts. Many affiliates either terminated the use of such merchants or switched to a competitor's affiliate program. Eventually, affiliate networks were also forced by merchants and affiliates to take a stand and ban certain adware publishers from their network. The result was Code of Conduct by Commission Junction/beFree and Performics,[35] LinkShare's Anti-Predatory Advertising Addendum,[36] and ShareASale's complete ban of software applications as a medium for affiliates to promote advertiser offers.[37] Regardless of the progress made, adware continues to be an issue, as demonstrated by the class action lawsuit against ValueClick and its daughter company Commission Junction filed on April 20, 2007.[38]
I’m not sure of the exact reasons why I started to rank, but I have a few theories. It was a very long, honest, and informative post on the subject. I believe this made it stand out from all the other reviews in which the author just wrote up a basic summary of what it’s about. It also is one of the latest reviews on the book, so perhaps google freshness has something to do with it. I haven’t done any linkbuilding on this page and it currently sits at #2.
At times, video information is too big to be e-mailed or put into personal website, which is where video sharing websites come into play. Sites like Youtube.com allow a member to upload the video which can be redirected to online video sharing page marked with certain keywords for easy search, for example, "movies", "science", "baseball", and this is all for free as the site earns its money through advertising. USA Today reports that this truly signifies as "the beginning of the age of personal media". 

Cost per action/sale methods require that referred visitors do more than visit the advertiser's website before the affiliate receives a commission. The advertiser must convert that visitor first. It is in the best interest of the affiliate to send the most closely targeted traffic to the advertiser as possible to increase the chance of a conversion. The risk and loss are shared between the affiliate and the advertiser.
As more video is consumed across the internet via streaming services, there is increased pressure to monetize viewers, especially as the services scale to include millions of users. One monetization model is advertisements delivered in the same manner as television broadcast—the Ad pod (before, during, and after the show). But unlike traditional TV, streaming services

Although music streaming is no longer a freely replicable public good, streaming platforms such as Spotify, Deezer, Apple Music, SoundCloud, and Prime Music have shifted music streaming to a club-type good. While some platforms, most notably Spotify, give customers access to a freemium service that enables the use of limited features for exposure to advertisements, most companies operate under a premium subscription model. Under such circumstances, music streaming is financially excludable, requiring that customers pay a monthly fee for access to a music library, but non-rival, since one customer’s use does not impair another’s.
Another open-source video player which doesn’t cost a dime, UM Player is another well-equipped video player software for Windows which is rich in customization and playback control tools. However, you’ll have to make do with the app’s bland UI and its old-ish design, which can be a big red flag for folks who value functionality and aesthetics equally. However, if you can bear with UM Player’s plain appearance, the software will prove to be a really nice alternative.
YouTube TV does have a nice selection of channels, including AMC, Bravo, Disney, ESPN, FX, Fox News, Fox Sports, MSNBC, National Geographic, Turner, USA, and some regional sports networks. You also get access to the original programming on YouTube Red, usually $10 per month. Showtime, Starz, and a few other channels can be added for an additional fee. However, the service lacks programming from Viacom (Comedy Central, MTV), Discovery Communications (Discovery, The Food Network, HGTV). YouTube says it’s still in discussions with networks, so more channels could be added soon.

Not only did this development disrupt the music industry by making songs that previously required payment to acquire freely accessible to any Napster user, it demonstrated the power of P2P networks in turning any digital file into a public, shareable good. For the brief period of time that Napster existed, mp3 files fundamentally changed as a type of good. Songs were no longer financially excludable - barring access to a computer with internet access - and they were not rival, meaning if one person downloaded a song it did not diminish another user from doing the same. Napster, like most other providers of public goods, faced the problem of free riding. Every user benefits when an individual uploads an mp3 file, but there is no requirement or mechanism that forces all users to share their music. Thus, Napster users were incentivized to let others upload music without sharing any of their own files.
Launch Jacking while the term helps designate its connotation, it’s not what you make it out to be. In reality it’s really nothing more than basic sales. No matter what the product is, everyone has their purpose in the algorithm it takes to take an idea to a product to a sale. People who are so called launch jackers are really just affiliates. They are helping sell the product no matter what you think of their tactics. People that are looking into “Bro-Tastic Money Finder X” really need the extra push to buy it. So they are scouring the net for more information on the product. What a launch jacker is essentially doing is putting that same information that is available on the site, in a different form. Most of these forms are tried and true! They are very well analyzed, split tested and everything matters! Even the science of the colors and how it can lead you to certain actions. Hell it even involves psychology. It’s actually pretty genius if you understood it more. Ethically, almost all these products have a 100% money back guarantee. If it doesn’t, I won’t promote it unless…. I know the people behind it.
