A: Make money with affiliate marketing.
Who doesn’t want to make money while sitting in front of a computer? With affiliate marketing you can earn money online while doing nothing but publishing links, writing reviews and invitations to your audience. In this article I will tell you about affiliate marketing, what it is and how you can make money with it.
A: Affiliate cookies, what they are and the impact they have on your earnings.
In Affiliate Marketing you earn money by placing links to online shops on your website. The more people that click through the link and buy something from a merchant sites, the more money you can expect to get from that affiliate network.
For this reason, most affiliate networks place a cookie on the computers of their visitors. This way they can track whether a visitor purchased a product after clicking your affiliate link or not. In order to ensure that the amount of money you get from a merchant is correct, they need to know if a purchase was made after clicking your link or not.
However, this also means that visitors of your website who don’t have an affiliate cookie placed on their computer will not be tracked when buying products in an online store. This is why in some cases even if someone clicks your affiliate link and purchases a product in an online shop, you won’t get paid for it because there is no affiliate cookie on his computer.
