We’ve had a poll in our blog giving you the chance to pick your favourite major US affiliate/advertising networks – we hope you were able to cast your votes.

After some late voting activity, we’ve closed the poll and you can see the results on the left-hand side. Commission Junction have taken top honours with a decisive 50% of the total vote. Congratulations to CJ on being voted the most popular network; we count ourselves amongst their many fans.

Jennifer Lovette, Vice President of Client Development West for Commission Junction’s US operations, says the following about the result: “We are delighted to be chosen the best US network. Commission Junction is committed to growing relationships on both sides of the pond and we would be glad to help any affiliates who are interested in extending into the US market”. 

CJ have a truly impressive roll call of advertisers in the USA including Yahoo!, Home Depot, Buy.com and Dell. The annual CJU events, held at their sunny headquarters in Santa Barbara each year, give publishers and advertisers the chance to network and exchange marketing tips in perhaps one of the most enticing conference locations in the world!

Second place in our poll was taken by Linkshare, the ‘grandfather’ of all networks, which remains at the forefront of affiliate marketing with clients including iTunes, Delta Airlines and Walmart. Specialising in Finance, Retail and Travel, the network has made a big impact on the international affiliate marketing scene since starting up in 1996 and we recommend them as very worthy runners-up!

Perhaps most surprising was that AzoogleAds and Pepperjam came bottom and second bottom respectively, with only 5% and 10% of the votes. Both networks have gotten a great deal of publicity over recent times, but it seems that this does not reflect on how they are rated by the community.

We now invite you to vote for your favourite social networking media in our new poll, which you can find on the right-hand side bar if you scroll down the page.
