The Webs Affiliate Program strives to provide the most affiliate friendly and fair playing environment in our niche. We always patrol for adware and remove it when we find it. The Affiliate Program is proud to offer our affiliate partners:
The Webs Affiliate Program encourages success and welcomes the following types of affiliates:
Pay Per Click (PPC) is a great way to drive sales and leads with the Webs Affiliate Program. Although the market does seem saturated, many of the general words with a few modifiers cost roughly $0.28 to $0.55 per click. This is actually not very expensive when compared to many other niches. When you consider those costs for these higher traffic general terms, and then look at the long tail phrases, your CPC can go down substantially and your conversion rates can increase. Here are a few ways to find some of the keywords that might be more cost effective if you want to try PPC:
The Webs Affiliate Program does not encourage direct to merchant linking. We do, however, allow it. The reason we do not encourage it is that PPC is a great way to build traffic and brand loyalty to your own site. You are paying for this traffic and should be able to build your own brand as well. That way you can also collect your visitors’ information on newsletter lists and remarket back to them over and over. It also gives your visitors a place to refer friends to for recommendations.
Webs is more than happy to help write content and copy with or for you. If you want control over the article, though, and are stuck with writer’s block, here are a few topics that you may want to use to promote Webs’ products:
Webs is built for simplicity and affordability. We want your website visitors to have the best user experience possible which is why we offer them 24 hour support and tons of resources to get their websites off the ground. We feature hundreds of themes for them to choose from and also have tools for them to optimize and receive more traffic. Our website builder tool is fast, fun and easy to use, which is why it has been used to build more than 40 million websites.

Nothing! The Webs Affiliate Program is free to join and participate in. We are the ones paying you for promoting us, so there’s no reason why you should have to pay to join the program.
Yes. Who better to promote Webs than the people who have used or still use our services?
We use ShareASale. ShareASale provides the technology that enables us to add and manage affiliates and ensure that commissions are paid accurately and on a timely basis.
You will get paid when ShareASale pays their affiliates. ShareASale pays out on the 20th of the month for the affiliates who have met the minimum payout criteria collectively across all merchants.
Although we do not have a minimum payment threshold, ShareASale does. You’ll have to check with them by either submitting a ticket through their system or adjusting your own threshold by editing your account settings. You can always contact them as well by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Because the end user may or may not have opted into the adware you are using--but the webmaster whose site you are showing ads over never opted in. If you show an ad over the Webs website when a shopper reaches our site, you have to understand that we did not opt in to having you show ads on our site either. This is why we do not approve of this type of marketing or behavior. To us, this is essentially stealing traffic and will not be tolerated, even if your adware is not active within our program.
If you are bidding on our trademarks then you are not bringing in new customers who have never heard of us. You may also be overwriting another affiliate’s cookie if the person found us through their site and then did a search to come back and find us again. Just like from our own internal efforts, the other affiliate did the work to introduce us to the new job seeker or customer, which is why we feel they should get the credit and not someone who is bidding on the trademark.
Although we are not opposed to partnering with coupon sites, we do not want to work with the coupon sites that only want to optimize for our trademarks or extensions of our trademarks. The goal of our Affiliate Program is to reach a new audience that we cannot reach on our own. By having coupon sites show up for Webs coupons and tagging people with affiliate’s cookies that were already on our site, we would not benefit from this. Coupon sites that add us to their newsletters every month or show up and send traffic off of terms like website builder coupons do reach an audience we cannot reach and add value to us.
If your application was rejected you can always write to us to find out why. Please remember that just because you were rejected doesn’t mean that we don’t want to partner with you. A rejection is also not a reflection on the quality of your site. Here is a list of common list of reasons why some affiliate applications get rejected:
Just because your application was declined doesn’t mean we do not want to work with you. Please write to us at email@example.com and we’ll look at your application again.
We do not encourage you to design your own banners. Instead let us know what size and what you need on them and we will gladly create them for you. Please contact us by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll put your request in the graphic design department’s queue.

Affiliate agrees that any dispute or claim arising out of or related to this Agreement, any transactions or activities under this Agreement, your relationship with us or any of our affiliates, or the interpretation, making, performance, breach or termination of this Agreement, shall be finally settled by binding, confidential arbitration in the state of Maryland under the American Arbitration Association Rules by one arbitrator appointed in accordance with said Rules. The proceedings shall be conducted and all evidence shall be offered in the English language. Affiliate agrees that any claim against Webs must be filed within one (1) year of the time such claim arose, regardless of any law to the contrary, otherwise such claim will be barred forever. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Webs may seek injunctive or other equitable relief to protect our intellectual property rights in any court of competent jurisdiction. To the fullest extent permitted by applicable law, no arbitration under this Agreement shall be joined to an arbitration involving any other party subject to this Agreement, whether through class arbitration proceedings or otherwise.
The parties are independent contractors and no agency, partnership, franchise, joint venture or employment relationship is intended or created by this Agreement. Neither party has the power or authority as agent, employee or any other capacity to represent, act for, bind or otherwise create or assume any obligation on behalf of the other party for any purpose whatsoever. Affiliate is solely responsible for all of its employees or agents and its labor costs and expenses arising therewith.
This Agreement will be governed by the laws of the United States and the state of Maryland. This Agreement may not be assigned by either party without the prior written consent of the non-assigning party. Notwithstanding the foregoing, Webs may assign this Agreement to any acquirer of all or of substantially all of its equity securities, assets or business related to the subject matter of this Agreement. Any attempted assignment in violation of this Agreement shall be null and void and without effect. This Agreement sets forth the entire understanding and agreement of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes all prior oral or written agreements or understandings between the parties as to the subject matter of this Agreement (including, but not limited to, any prior versions of the Agreement). In the event that any of the provisions of this Agreement shall be held by a court or other tribunal of competent jurisdiction to be unenforceable, such provisions shall be limited or eliminated to the minimum extent necessary so that this Agreement shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable. Headings and captions are for convenience only and are not to be used in the interpretation of this Agreement. The failure of Webs to exercise or enforce any right or provision of this Agreement shall not constitute a waiver of such right or provision. The parties acknowledge and agree that this Agreement may be entered into electronically, and without the necessity of written signatures.
Webs enforces a zero tolerance policy for adware. Adware as defined by Webs is any software, toolbar or device that can set a cookie without a click, show an ad over another person’s website or take credit for a sale that was not referred off of the Affiliate’s own website. Adware can include but is not limited to toolbars, BHOs, reminderware, couponware, loyaltyware, PPV advertising, interstitial advertising, contextual advertising, etc. If found using this type of method, all sales, regardless of origin will be immediately reversed and the Affiliate will be terminated with or without warning.[Last updated: August 17, 2011]
