Affiliate Glossary (SEO / SEM)

I am very much thankful to all you people for appretiation. This is my next series of SEO glossary. I have tried to add terminologies more related to SEO field as well as for Affiliate Marketing and Google Adsense.

This is first part of terminologies used in Affiliated Marketing.

Affiliate Agreement - Terms between a merchant and an affiliate that govern the relationship.

Affiliate Fraud - Bogus activity generated by an affiliate in an attempt to generate illegitimate, unearned revenue.

Affiliate Information Page - A page (or pages) on a website that explains, clearly and concisely, what the affiliate program is all about.

Affiliate Link - A piece of code residing in a graphic image or piece of text that is placed on an affiliate's Web page, notifying the merchant that an affiliate should be credited for the customer or visitor sent to their website.

Affiliate Manager - The manager of an affiliate program who is responsible for creating a newsletter, establishing incentive programs, forecasting and budgeting, overseeing front-end marketing of the program and monitoring the industry for news and trends.

Affiliate Merchant - The advertiser in an affiliate marketing relationship.

Affiliate Program (also an “associate,” “partner,” “referral” or “revenue sharing program”) - A plan where a merchant pays a commission to an affiliate for generating clicks, leads or sales from a graphic or text link located on the affiliate's site.
