Hitwise has published a list of the top shopping websites, based on US Internet usage for the week ending October 20, 2007, and affiliate marketing leaves a big imprint on the list.
Since this is where the consumers are going to shop, I’d say affiliates would be well advised to use this as a target list of affiliate programs to test on their sites.
I’ve promoted half of them in the last year myself. That reminds me – I need to review my current Dell for WeViews.tv and plug in some nice affiliate links.
