    Google Analytics can track clicks to your affiliate site but not to the merchant site as your code is only on your site. You would use the network reporting to measure the clicks to the merchants site. Zero conversion means you made no sales on your clicks. Click through rate (CTR) is the measure of how many visitors to your site clicked through to the merchants site.
