When Google announced that their affiliate network would be shut down, it sent ripples across US, UK and India. Today, Google has sent another mailer to all the bloggers using the Google Blogger platform that GAN is shutting down on 31st July 2013. 

Here is the release by Google:


Dear Google Affiliate Ads For Blogger User,

We’ve made the difficult decision to retire Google Affiliate Network (GAN), which means we will no longer offer the Google Affiliate Ads for Blogger product to Blogger users. According to your Google Affiliate Ads For Blogger Online Program Terms and Conditions and AdSense Terms and Conditions, we will suspend and terminate all Google Affiliate Ads for Blogger services on July 31, 2013.

Publisher payments will be disbursed for your Google Affiliate Ads For Blogger activity generated through July 31, 2013. For clarity, the last day that new activity will be tracked through GAN (including conversions) is July 31, 2013. However, we may remove the ability to create new affiliate ads before July 31, 2013 and, if we do, we’ll let you know.

Blogger users can continue to monetize their blogs through the AdSense network. Thanks for your support of Google Affiliate Ads for Blogger, and we look forward to helping you grow your business in the future.

The Google Affiliate Network Team
