    Default What's your worst affiliate task?

    Hey guys,

    As mentioned in other posts some of us AM's have side projects. Mines is a blog.

    I was wondering - as webmasters, what's your 'worst' task that you have to do?

    At the moment, mines is naming images and adding alt text. I hate doing it, i'm not sure why but when I started out I was really lazy and never bothered as I really disliked doing it.

    I'd be interested to see what other people don't enjoy doing

    Checking that affiliate links still work and aren't going to a dead page. Sadly a diarised job now for the worst culprits...

    Yeh updating bonuses and programs that change their bonuses too often is definitely one irritation!

    But I would say my worst task is probably article writing. There's only so many ways you can describe the same/similar betting sites, I literally sometimes have to drag the content out of myself, it's quite draining sometimes, I can waste a lot longer time than I should on these articles because I find them so boring and therefore they drag on, I tend to get bored and find myself doing other things to break it up.

    I haven't yet got to a point where I'm happy farming that key content out to a writer either, as I can never find one that writes to a very high standard.

    Redirecting URLs from a changing site structure. A while back with an old project I had to manually redirect about 300 URL's, not the best time.

    Definitely changing out of date information, links, offers etc as it's so time consuming yet you feel like you have done no work at the end of it

    Same as the consensus here.

    Changing affiliate links (I need to implement a better system to reduce the amount of manual labour)
    Changing bonuses (why oh why must these change so often)

    The casinos don't make life easy for us do they!!!
