    Deep Linking = Linking to specific pages (often product pages), deep within a site, that are much more relevant to what your visitors would be interested in (as opposed to just linking to the home page). For instance, if you have a page about fixing a busted iPhone 4 screen, linking directly to a repair kit rather than to the home page of a store that sells a repair kit.

    Conversion Ratio = What percent of visitors place an order. If you send 100 clicks to a merchant and 5 people buy, you have a 5% conversion ratio.
