For those of us inrepparttar Adwords and Overture business, we all know how Google and Yahoo have changed their practice of allowing pharmacy related advertising to any program not approved by squaretrade.

Apparently, they took some heat fromrepparttar 131582 US government, as well as some publishers onrepparttar 131583 issue. Here is why it not only is costing Google and Yahoo money, butrepparttar 131584 little guy lost big.

1. Squaretrade charges $200 + $50 a month for an approved seal that will allow you to sell prescription drugs via an affiliate link to an approved pharmacy.

2. Squaretrade does allow Canada pharmacies and affiliates to join, but they must have a disclaimer stating thatrepparttar 131585 FDA does not reccomend ordering drugs intorepparttar 131586 US from Canada.

3. The little guy now has two problems. The first is to find a pharmacy that is approved. The second is to payrepparttar 131587 outrageous fee.

4. Google still shows thousands of unlicensed websites in their search listings, so obviously it does not care that much.
