    Question how do cookies tie in?
    So I'm trying to figure out when you're researching different affiliate programs how exactly cookies tie in to everything? one site says 180 days another site says 60 days but how does this effect the affiliate? if anybody knows of any good books or tutorials that can help me answer basic questions such as this one and not clutter up the forums too much I'd be greatly appreciative.

    Basically when someone clicks over from your site to the merchant site, if they buy anything within 180 or 60 days or whatever the cookie length is, you should get the sale. Some things can happen where that won't be the case, if they click on another affiliate link from somebody else, it sets a new cookie for the other affiliate or if somebody has a program that erases cookies, that kind of thing.
