    It certainly seems a bit silly using the company name in the referring URL without first obtaining permission. (hoping I haven't done anything similar - doubt it)

    ****At the bottom there's a headline 'Skype affiliate can keep Skyp.com' was that because they gave permission intially I wonder?

    The guy who used those tesco names should have known when his luck was up, i.e. when the solicitors gave him the offer to settle out of Court. He clearly had a "pair of 2's" up against a "pair of aces" and yet he carried on raising the pot.
    Wonder how much the costs were, I guess maybe £20,000.
    By the way, have a look at Asda names ,lol. He'll be next no doubt.

    avon4me.co.uk Sue York OV w/ext 0
    jersey-tesco.co.uk Elogicom Ltd OV w/ext 0
    jerseytesco.co.uk Elogicom Ltd OV w/ext 7
    tesco-diet.co.uk Elogicom Ltd OV w/ext 39
    (hyphen so ov inaccurate)
    tesco-diets.co.uk Elogicom Ltd OV w/ext 22
    tesco-opticians.co.uk Elogicom Ltd OV w/ext 0
    tesco2u.co.uk Elogicom Ltd OV w/ext 0
    tesco2you.co.uk Elogicom Ltd OV w/ext 0
    tescodiet.co.uk Elogicom Ltd OV w/ext 163
    tescodiets.co.uk Tesco Stores Limited OV w/ext 112
    tescodietshop.co.uk Elogicom Ltd OV w/ext 0
    tescodvd.co.uk Elogicom Ltd OV w/ext 0
    tescojersey.co.uk Elogicom Ltd OV w/ext 212
    tescoopticians.co.uk Elogicom Ltd OV w/ext 0

    So on .co.uk domains, total Ov w/ext for Elogicom was approx. total 443 (tescodiets was owned by tesco so not included).

    So OV w/ext of 443 equates to £26,000 at 2% = £1,300,000 of sales

    I don't think so? I bet there was ppc involved? but what do I know. Anyone else with figures to match?

    That's what I first thought too, but if you dig a little further, Tesco are paying 3% once you reach a certain figure in a month and up to £16 for every person who signs up to their GI Diet program. I expect most of these earnings come from the diet program in which case it would equate to about 1,668 sign ups which is a little more believable.

    I never knew there was so much money to be made out of diets, well I'm off to develop all my GI Diet domains :cool:
