Just What Are Affiliate Programs?

Affiliate programs are where a website has a product to sell and they offer you a commission when you display their product on your site and someone buys the product.

You can do an online search for affiliate programs and you will get a lot of links to different affiliate programs. However you also have to be careful. There are a lot of good and legitimate ones out there and of course that has spawn those that are not so good and not so legitimate.

Before you think about joining any of them you should do some research online and find out what others have said about the program - especially if its something bad about it.

When you join an affiliate program you are given a number and that is how your affiliate earnings are tracked and you can check your earnings by signing into the affiliate page with your account information.

With the exception of Adsense's program I don't like most of the other affiliate programs - but hey, that's just me.
