These rankings are derived from our biggest ever survey of affiliates, publishers, advertisers and agencies in the performance marketing industry. Over 100,000 responses were analyzed, weighed and then allocated to the various networks, and then cross-checked with industry experts before we arrived at the final ranking positions. It is important to note that these rankings are not just a popularity contest. If we only evaluated the sheer number of votes for each network, then the biggest networks would simply swamp the smaller ones. What we try to do is also look at the quality of support for each network; enthusiasm, reputation and influence all play a part in reaching our final opinions. The result is a list of the world’s best CPA networks, with a good mixture of huge networks and small, and of boutique, invitation-only networks and million-affiliate behemoths. Evangelize the power of performance marketing. 2012 awaits.
