What happened to SEMRush BeRush Affiliate Program?
If you were a SEMRush affiliate or tried to sign up for the SEMRush affiliate program before 1st October 2020, you may have noticed that the affiliate program was called BeRush.
BeRush used to be SEMRush main affiliate program. SEMRush Affiliate Program on ShareASale has replaced BeRush as SEMRush main affiliate program since 1 October 2020. The reason for this is that BeRush attribution model and the tracking were outdated and not to industry standards.
BeRush is still available but it became an invitation-only program. You can join only if you received a unique invitation code from one of SEMRush Affiliate Account Managers.
