    • Limit of one button in an email and it can ONLY say either "Ad" or "Sponsored Listing"
    • People working with networks have to be Google Approved as well as their third party registrants and email senders
    • Google must approve all creatives
    • Once approved, you're assigned a seed address, so Google can see every email sent
    • If you or anyone within your emailing network are found in violation, Google will rake your revenue

      Gets tougher and tougher every day. :(

    What does this mean for networks? Are they all affected by this?

    They're pushing gmail ads, ads that are disguised as email messages, so it makes sense that they're trying to make it as difficult as possible for 3rd parties to deliver promotional email.

    Remember that time, years ago, when I suggested that it would have been smart if a few of the mailers with $$$ got together and lobbied for legislation that would have made this kind of censorship a civil liability, and require that anyone providing email as a service to end users not interfere with the delivery of email? Unfortunately most of the people here are quite complacent, and from the lack of participation, most of them are now broke or close to it.

    TLD delivery is not going to get any better as long as there's no consequence for gmail, yahoo, aol and others (i.e. 90% of active email) to do things like this. Yahoo is doing the same with their inbox ads, and if aol isn't already on the same bandwagon it's a matter of time until they are.

    Huh?
    That's something completely different from what OP posted about.
    OP is talking about promoting CPC offers via email.

    It doesn't matter what you're promoting. If it's "via email" and to one of the TLDs you're competing against their own inbox ad platform. Do I need to spell this out for you? Google, yahoo, hotmail and probably AOL are now stepping up the limitations on the volume of promotional email they'll accept in total because 3rd party promotional email is competing with their inbox ads, and they don't want that. They want you to pay $5+ per click for their ads; they don't want mailers profiting by bulk mailing to recipients at any of those domains.

    This is one of those times I'm glad I use Adstation. They're actually a yahoo network so this doesn't affect them.

    They are just encouraging transparency. Look on the good side.
    It's maturing and hence compliance rules etc....

    What's wrong with seeding, If there is nothing to hide?
    Its just like the requirements of CS2003.
    Prior to that all was considered black hat whether you mailed with your own IPs/network, or peas, or relays.

    My 2cents....
