Vouchercodes.co.uk
An agency contacted me regarding a drop in sales for their Merchant, we have a generic code AFF5 (5% off), i did a google search and saw Vouchercodes.co.uk had AFF9 (9% Off).

I pointed this out to them and said maybe visitors are using the 9% off code from voucherodes.co.uk, however it turns out that AFF9 isn't a legit code and the agency keep having to ask them to take down false codes.

It's all good and well but, these false codes are still overwriting everyone elses cookies.. but does this merchant punish them by rejecting them as an affiliate?.. nope, they give them a 7% Exclusive code instead because they are their best affiliate.

RE: Vouchercodes.co.uk
Well it doesn't really, must happen a lot, first actual code I checked on the vouchercodes.co.uk site is a false code, yet merchant bend over backwards to work with them.

I wonder how well a site would do if you just auto generated codes for all merchants, I bet it would do well for unique content in google so rank better, plus drop loads of cookies, and if it made enough money networks would turn a blind eye.

It's time for we (as icodes) take action! It proves that icodes is a leading player and if the agencies continue to act in the way they do, we should boycott that merchant.

Someone needs to speak to Webgains, too and ask them not to put them in the feed, I catch most but it makes me wonder why we bother.

Going back to Micks Garage, usually they have a load of codes on the first day of the month, in February there was one (AFF5) 5% off.. The Agency need to look elsewhere for fault.

RE: Vouchercodes.co.uk
They must be brain dead putting exclusive codes in a generic affiliate feed. Can you remember when a U.S. Network did that and retailmenot actually managed to get us knocked offline by sending our hosts a cease and desist to get the code removed, instead of emailing us.. Bloody idiots.
