There are a lot of affiliate programs out there but its not about how many you can apply to (because it really easy to get excepted to any) but its all about how you use them efficiently.
LinkShare is a large affiliate program and has a lot of known brands like Macy's, Toys R Us, Overstock just to name a few. These online stores can make you a lot of money. They pay good money to affiliates and are well known. Through LinkShare you can get banners links and best of all coupon codes and that's where the money is. Millions of people each and everyday are looking for ways to save when shopping online and coupon codes are a great way to build a site/blog. Here you can see the best way to build your site around LinkShare at The Coupon Geek.
The way it is set up and built with online coupon codes and deals is the best way you can use all of LinkShares stores. It's a lot of work keeping up with all the coupons and deals yet the pay out is huge. People that are looking for a online deal/coupon are clickcoholics (if there is such a word) which makes it so much better for you. Why? because of the cookie duration if that person clicks on a link today you will get credit for that sale weather its today or 3 weeks later (depending on the agreement for that particular store) as long as they don't click on some other site, so the last place they click that site gets credit for it.
