    Affiliate link types
    For affiliate links, which generally work better, banners or text?

    99.99% of your sales will come from text links.

    I basically just use a small (120x80 or 90) banner or two to add a little color to the page.

    You do need to show images of the products with the text links. That's what works best for me.

    Banners or buttons or product images draw attention, text links under any of the above are what gets clicked on. Too many banners on a page are distracting. If you are making recommendations of places people should visit, they will click a text link, if you are showing products or deals, they want to see an image in addition to having a text link to click on.

    Both work. It depends on your site.
    I would rather live my life as if there is a God and die

    isn't and die to find out there is.
