Lots of news from the affiliate marketing and comparison shopping engine front.

The latest issues with Google Checkout. Many affiliates aren't getting paid when Google Checkout is being used. Google's being very proactive, and putting a lot of resources towards this, so I wouldn't be surprised to see it fixed shortly.

PC World has a skeptical article on shopping comparison engines, which makes some excellent points. At this point, you'd be hard pressed to find a good comparison of any electronics under $25, and in many cases under $50, due to the high price of clicks.

As someone I was talking to Saturday, who works for one of the major vendors in that space, it really is the Wild Wild West right now. The NY Times weighs in on some of the sites trying to step into the space.
