Google Affiliate Network Closing
Google Affiliate Network was set up to connect publishers with advertisers. Publishers could use the network to promote products to earn a commission from sales, and publishers could earn a percentage of each sale from a link generated on their site. Google has recently announced that Google Affiliate Network is closing soon because they are concentrating on different products and services for both publishers and advertisers.
Google feels that other products will be more beneficial to advertisers and publishers, so they want to devote more time and resources to developing different products with hopes of better results.
GAN closing will take several months, and Google will continue to support their customers during this period of time. They are offering AdSense as an alternative to Google Affiliate Network, and they encourage publishers to use AdSense to earn money on their blogs and websites.

Overall, Adsense is one of the better choices, but there are some different options.
