Snow Team Faces Off with Cancer ASW 2017

It was not just meetings and parties at Affiliate Summit West 2017.The Snow Team took time out to support the Face Off With Cancer Charity Hockey game. Roger and Randy suited up for the black team to play in the charity hockey game put together by UpSellit.   The game ended in a tie at the buzzer with a goal by the red team in the last second. Then the game went to a shootout, where each player attempted to make a goal in a one on one face off with the goalie. The shootout resulted in another tie ( well that is what the ref said)..and finally, to rock, paper, scissors to determine if the red or black team won.  In the end, everyone had a fantastic time and raised over eleven thousand dollars for Face Off With Cancer. We would like to thank our wonderful clients and friends, who generously donated to support our team in the Face off with Cancer Charity event. You helped make this a success.   The event was such a success on its’ first try, with limited time to plan and organize, that we will make this an annual event. With more time and preparation, we expect the event to be even bigger next year!         I brought my husband, Kai with his new Cobra HD Adventure Cam to record the action from behind the glass in the nice comfy bar at the Las Vegas Ice Center.  You can see Roger making a sweet goal for the black team and Randy making an awesome save.        ...

Google has become increasingly vigilant about link manipulation or unnatural links- where websites owners are buying links to improve their link profiles and manipulate their ranking artificially. In the past year, Google has brought the hammer down on link exchanges, blog linking networks, Advertorials, guest blogging networks and paid text links that are intended to skew link profiles. Sites involved in this kind of activity were penalized and in some cases removed from Google’s index.   Affiliate Links and Merchants So the question is what kind of impact does an affiliate linking to you have on your site and what are the best practices for having affiliates link to you?
