Incredible, it's really a verbatim copy!
Now that's something i'd never seen. Maybe the people at bitsdujour should be warned?
I'm not sure if it's bad for them, though :)

I *guess* the owners could turn out to be the same persons / company.

I do't think it's necessary... read the About Us page. It's powered by iconico.

Here's the details... http://www.bitsdujou...om/partnerStoreInfo/

Hm... is it just me, or is that pretty lame? Why wouldn't you just go to BitsDuJour? I hate the whole idea of "resellers" >_<

f0dder: it's a way for them to get market on audiences that they might not get without this partnership.
I guess that if DC asked them for that partnership, they probably wouldn't accept because they already get people from DC to go directly to their site. (on the other hand.. that's only for forum readers, and this partnership would get them site/blog viewers too).

Not dissimilar to showing the headlines of some News Site on your site though? Why wouldn't you go straight to the news site?

As jgpaiva said: it's all about greater audiences. It's putting the baited hook in front of people who may buy because they see it (rather than searching for it because they want it): and obviously the more people that see it, the more may bite!

- yes, of course. If the visitor clicks the top head mounted "Buy Now" (not the big green button) he will not be offered to purchase today's offer, but the WiseCleaner Pro products.
