Google Affiliate Network Closing

Google Affiliate Network was set up to connect publishers with advertisers.  Publishers could use the network to promote products to earn a commission from sales, and publishers could earn a percentage of each sale from a link generated on their site.  Google has recently announced that Google Affiliate Network is closing soon because they are concentrating on different products and services for both publishers and advertisers.
