Yahoo Affiliate Check

Yahoo Affiliate check dialogue

I just received this from the Yahoo Affiliate Team:

Hi SMO Blogger,

We wanted to let you know that your commission payments from Yahoo!, will be delayed one month. Rest assured that this only affects your Yahoo! commissions and all other advertiser commission amounts remain unaffected. Commission Junction has addressed this issue and we are currently working on a resolution to make sure this is an isolated incident.

We are sorry for any inconvenience this has caused you and appreciate your patience.

Yahoo! Affiliate Team

Did you or did you not receive your Yahoo Affiliate check? Well, I have been a member of the Yahoo Affiliate program for years, making good money with other programs like Google AdSense, Commission Junction and Linkshare. But… Yahoo hasn’t panned out for me in terms of revenue. I keep waiting to see some results before I invest time in testing programs. What about you, do you use Yahoo Affiliate?

Weird Google

Weird Google Search Results

I got the above when I was searching on Google for a SMO product I heard about on a podcast called knowem. It basically helps companies reserve their social media profiles across the multitude of social sites, keep away squatters, that type of stuff. Apparently my desktop brought up a page that was intended for mobile.

Weird Google Search Results2

I have no idea what this error means. It seems to be saying that a previous page (a google search results page) is sending me to a TechCrunch page. Why would Google provide a warning about a redirect from google.com?

I invite your opinions about these two screen caps.
