Do you promote sites that offer binary options?
Being a geek of sorts, during setup day at the recent Barcelona Affiliate Conference, MichaelCorfman proudly wore a shirt with the saying "There are only 10 types of people in the world: those that understand binary and those that don't." Binary options allow bets to be placed on very short term price changes in things like foreign exchange rates, commodity futures, and other types of economic events. They can have a strong gambling flavor to them, and they are legal in the United States. For this week's question we'd like to find out what affiliates here think about the binary option marketplace and if it's a marketplace you already promote, plan to promote, or plan to avoid. View poll

An affiliate program says in their T&Cs (Betfred is purely for an example): "You cannot purchase or bid for keywords which include the word Betfred or variations of Betfred. This includes misspellings of our name." What does this mean? Does this mean you are not allowed to use their name in backlink anchor text? Could you use "BOOKMAKER NAME free bet" as an anchor text? read more
