Rakuten LinkShare today announced it has been ranked the performance marketing industry’s top affiliate network for the third consecutive year. The ranking, based on a survey of more than 20,000 online advertisers, publishers and agencies in the affiliate marketing industry, was conducted by media entity mThink, publishers of Revenue+Performance magazine.
“Now in its sixth year, the annual rankings recognize the efforts of affiliate networks to support and drive successful online campaigns while also providing deeper insight into the pulse of the industry,” said Chris Trayhorn, CEO of mThink. “With Rakuten LinkShare having earned the top spot for the third year in a row, it’s clear the company is dedicated to its global network of advertisers and publishers who consistently and vocally share their vote of confidence.”
The survey, known as the “Blue Book,” is an annual ranking that identifies the top 20 CPS and CPA performance marketing networks among more than 500 in consideration. An external panel of industry experts, which represent every aspect of the affiliate marketing industry, provides additional input into the survey results.
“Being recognized as the world’s top performance marketing network yet again is both an honor and a challenge that we welcome,” said Yaz Iida, chief executive officer, Rakuten LinkShare. “While we’re grateful for this award, we’re also aware of our responsibility to maintain our leadership position by continuing to deliver the best tools and services to our thriving community of advertisers and publishers.”
