    Where do you actually put affiliate links ??
    Is there the option to put a piece of code in the website source that means that all links that get clicked through is counted as an affiliate link

    OR must all affiliate links be part of the link that is clicked through in order to work??


    thanks.

    Two different things, here:

    That would be a service like Viglink, and others, where links/keywords on a page get overwritten/created and you get some form of payment when people click and/or buy. Basically a sub-affiliate. Not all merchants allow sub-affiliates.

    Conventional affiliate links come from the affiliate network the merchant belongs to (or if they have an in-house program). You receive 100% of the commissions when someone clicks through and purchases within the terms set by the merchant. You're not sharing your revenue with anyone else.

    Data Feed services, like in your other post, requires you to be an approved affiliate for each merchant. Some services charge you for their services - either by a monthly fee or what they they call "4th click model".

    Most of these feed services offer simple javascript code to show products on your website. However, they suck for SEO purposes. Some offer PHP implementation which requires some skill sets - with PHP you do get some SEO benefits.

    Having a bunch of links on a website, WITHOUT A PURPOSE, does nothing for you and chances of success is slim. You need to offer a perceived value to your visitors and, of course, the search engines. Whether it be writing unique content, offering cashback, offering coupons, price comparison, reviews, etc. Just being a link farm doesn't cut it...

    Remember, as an affiliate you should be a problem solver. In other words, you help with someone's problem, and then offer your solutions via your affiliate links. Until you convince your visitor that you want to help them and offer a good solution, why would they ever click on your link. The role of an affiliate is to add value to the transaction, for both the customer and the merchant. Put yourself in their shoes.
