This is a short post with some research I’ve been doing into affiliate sites. Not much information to add other than I wish I started these sites and I wish I’d bought uswitch in 2006.

I can’t see auto generated shopping sites having much value since they rely too heavily on Google but the others are going from strength to strength. Confused.com has even been able to switch away from getting paid for sales and now gets paid for every quote instead!

Money Supermarket

confused.com

uswitch.com
