Godaddy Affiliate program changes & March 19 .CA TBR Drop Results

The March 19 .ca TBR drop featured a total of 117 .ca domains that were caught, which is pretty much in line with recent weeks.  There were a few good names on the list but nothing spectacular.

One .ca domain sale was reported last week at  After a good start to 2014 there haven't been any big .ca domain sales reported lately.  The domain that sold last week was:  -  $1,999  - sold at Sedo currently goes to a placer page, and a quick look up on Domain Tools doesn't reveal much.  The domain was created on June 6, 2013 and is registered until 2023, so someone must have some plans for it.  Hopefully we'll see more .ca sales in coming weeks, even as the new gtlds continue to roll out and likely take some of the attention away from legacy extensions (though I haven't seen any new gtld's in use in Canada yet).

As a lot of blogs have noted today, Godaddy is ending their in-house affiliate program and letting the affiliate program be run by other parties like Commission Junction and Share a Sale.  I liked the fact that Godaddy ran their affiliate program in house, I used to be a member of Commission Junction but eventually left because I wasn't getting results, it got harder to join advertisers, and banners and links required continuous updates.  I want to keep promoting Godaddy so I joined Share a Sale and will see how it goes.  I'm sure some do very well with CJ but my results and experience with them just got worse over time.  I find it better to work a few good affiliate programs rather than many mediocre ones (like I used to do when I started out).  The other drawback of this change is that webmasters have to go around and change their affiliate links to new ones, which takes a lot of time!  At least the existing affiliate links are good for another month or so.

I will leave it at that for today, and move on to the rest of the TBR.

The full list of .ca domains taken in the March 19 TBR drop is below.  Thanks to Sibername for providing the results.  I've bolded some of the more interesting or better names in the list.

  1. I agree Rob, I have always found CJ flawed, I have caught them in out right shaving, watched the customer purchase from a link, should have got a commission never showed.

  2. I have heard or read similar stories over the years. I doubt I would go back to using them.


Thank you!
