Q: What are the definitions of the most common affiliate marketing terms?

Affiliate (also known as an Associate or Publisher)
A site owner that places links on their web site to promote merchant's products or services. For their efforts, the affiliate gets commission for all the valid transactions/sales referred to the merchant by using their affiliate link.


Affiliate Link
Is a special link containing code which tracks web visitors sent to a site by an affiliate. Each affiliate link contains a unique id specific to an individual affiliate and will record sales, visitors, and impressions generated and allow the merchant to attribute commissions.


Affiliate Network
A Site/Company where merchants can list their affiliate program/s. Affiliates can then join theses affiliate programs and promote the merchants' products and services by using text links, banners, etc. Affiliates can join and track a large number of affiliate programs from one site. All sales from each affiliate program are totalled together to give one sum. Affiliates will then receive commissions in one payment, often done monthly.


Cookie
A cookie is a small file placed on a user's PC as they travel through the affiliate link (or any other link where the site wishes to track user activity). A cookie allows sales generated by affiliate traffic to be recorded out of session (i.e. if the web user subsequently returns to the site and does not use the affiliate link). Cookies are usually valid for a set period of time such as 30 days, during which time the affiliate will still earn commission on any purchases made by the customer they originally referred. Cookies can also be set by merchants to specify if commissions would be payable on a repeat basis within the cookie period (recurring commissions).


Data Feed
A data feed is a file (usually in CSV or XML format) containing product information for a merchant. This file will typically contain url's, names, images & descriptions of products offered by the merchant. These files are used by many affiliates to create relevant commercial content for their own sites.


Merchants
A merchant is a company that sell products or services. As an affiliate, you'll have the option to partner with these merchants and help them sell their products online. These merchants normally pay affiliates/partners by pay per sale.


Pay Per Sale
An affiliate program that pays you a commission when you refer a visitor to a merchant's site and they then buy a product or service from the merchant. Affiliates usually get paid a percentage or a fixed rate of each product or service they sell.


Referrals
Affiliates send visitors to a merchant's site and if the visitor signs up to the merchant's affiliate program, advertisers program, etc. then the affiliate will either be paid a one of commission or a percentage of the referrals commission, advertisers deposits for life, and so on ...


Unique Visitors
A Unique visitor is counted every time a site is viewed every 24 hrs. E.g. If a site receives a visitor at 2.30pm and receives the same visitor at 6.30pm on the same day then it will be counted as just one visitor. If he had visited the site 2.31pm on the next day then it would have counted as two visitors.
