Anyone know what I have to do to ensure a website (ATP, for instance) gets paid if i want to buy from one of the advertisers on that website? Say Baker Creek is advertising on ATP, i usually look them up separate from ATP. But, then, BC would have no way of knowing i saw them on ATP. So........?
Also, there is only one ad at a time, do i just wait for BC to reappear, and then...........?

The ads you see on ATP are google ads. Dave earns money any time you click on an ad, no purchase necessary.

Are you sure that's correct, Jay? Cause if it is, I'll be happy to do a lot more clicking. Smiling

Does it make a difference if you access a company from their listing in the Green Pages?

Good question. But, i would guess that just because a company is in the green pages, doesnt mean they have a contract with ATP

We don't receive any financial benefit from your use of the Green Pages, but it's still not a bad idea. Some companies track where their customers come from and it's nice to see customers going to the stores through ATP.

Even if the company in the Green Pages doesn't track visitors, you could still leave them a note letting them know you found them through ATP.
