An update on the LinkSynergy issue:
Later that day I received an email from Apple saying it was a mistake & she didn’t know why it was sent and would reactivate my account. I had already deactivated my LinkSynergy account and I don’t plan to re-activate it. If the program was administered directly by Apple, I would use it, but LinkSynergy is just too much of a pain to deal with.
The iTunes, Apple Store, and .Mac affiliate programs haven’t been profitable for me and they don’t seem to be worth the time & effort it takes to keep up with them. I’ve had great success with Google AdSense, MacResQ, and Amazon Associates, all of which require a lot less time & effort to maintain.
