Time is running out for BuzzFeed, Mashable

"Web publishers can publish an unlimited number of pages and get an unlimited number of page views but there's only a limited number of people buying advertising."

More and more sites like this are mixing in more affiliate links in lieu or traditional advertising. Just in the past month we have had 3 HUGE publishers start mixing in our affiliate links into their content. Buzzfeed is one we have been trying to get on board for a while now.

Traditional advertising is drying up a bit but there is pretty much no limit to what they can do through the affiliate channel on a performance based model. There might not be as much up front money but there will always be opportunities for them.
