What rule applies to affiliate program revenue on your site?
Last year we conducted a poll asking where your revenue comes from in terms of customers. This week we thought we'd ask what ratio applies to affiliate programs you use on your sites? Do 10% of the affiliate programs you work with generate 90% of your revenue? Or do 20% of the affiliate programs you work with generate 80% of your revenue? Or something else?  View poll
Last week's poll results: Do you believe in diversifying your affiliate revenue to other industries? View poll
