Walmart.com + Geniuslink [Updated]

Update: As of June 2019, Walmart’s affiliate program is now being managed by Impact!

If you signed up for the program before June 2019, then you’re probably participating in the Walmart affiliate program as managed by Rakuten Linkshare. Both programs are still officially supported and we haven’t heard of any plans to deprecate the Rakuten program. If you’re signed up for Walmart (Rakuten), there should be no need to sign up for Walmart (Impact).

You can find instructions on how to add in your Walmart Partner IDs in our Knowledge base: Rakuten or Impact.

Keyword research and building links.

Microsoft Affiliate Program + Geniuslink

We’re excited to announce an update to our support of the Microsoft Affiliate Program! Microsoft was originally the third affiliate program we added support for, but when Impact took over the program from Tradedoubler, we didn’t have an opportunity to update our front end to handle the new changes. With this update, full auto-affiliation support of Microsoft’s regional affiliate programs can now be managed from within the Geniuslink dashboard!

Isaac and The World Traveler’s Intro to the Global Market

Today we wanted to take a quick break from our regularly scheduled blog to introduce the newest member of our team, Isaac Maier! Before starting full-time in Seattle, Isaac was backpacking through Asia, but we’ll let him talk about that. Without further adieu, let’s pass it on over to Isaac for a firsthand introduction.

Isaac Maier

Meet Isaac

Hey everyone, this is Isaac, your newest guide on the road to success and reaching your goals.

I started with Geniuslink as a marketing intern in the Summer of 2018 out in Big Sky Country (Missoula, Montana). But this wasn’t always my home. I grew up back in the Bay Area, in California. I like to make moves, so when granted the opportunity to join the Geniusteam in Seattle fully, it was a natural choice.  Read More

Niche Site Project’s “Surviving an Audit by Amazon Associates” + Commentary


Being compliant with Amazon’s Operating Agreement for their affiliate program (Amazon Associates) is really important to us here at Geniuslink (and we write about it a fair amount!).

Avoiding being the subject of an audit by the Amazon Associates compliance team is your best bet, but if you unfortunately get the fabled email letting you know your account is in jeopardy, then you’ve got your work cut out for you.  However, before you dive in, we’d encourage you to give the entertaining and highly educational post that Doug Cunnington, of Niche Site Project, wrote about his experience below (lightly edited).

As we’ve seen a number of these audits over the years I’ve interjected some commentary to Doug’s adventure in the post below (with this formatting).

Good luck and enjoy!
-Jesse (CEO / Co-Founder of Geniuslink)
