Why is Flash Den advertising itself on its own site w/ a referral link?

That seems kinda wierd to me…who really runs this place?

I cant exactly give a definite reason for why this happened, but the little sentence below the ad gives me a little clue… (“Ads by Miiingle”))

He he – i can understand how this would seem weird! :D All the ads on FlashDen are also on the other Eden sites – PSDtuts.com, Freelanceswitch.com, miiingle.com, faveup.com. They are run under one system (ie. if an ad goes up on one it goes up on all).

Yesterday we saw that a tutorial on PSDtuts was going to be going up on Digg Popular so we added FlashDen to the network temporarily so extra traffic could funnel into FlashDen. We will always do this when we’re expecting a traffic spike from one of the sites, provided there is a spot available on the network.

It has an affiliate link because that’s how we track how many sales come through from that sort on initiative.

Mystery solved!! ;)
