Merchants receiving a large percentage of their revenue from the affiliate channel can become reliant on their affiliate partners. This can lead to affiliate marketers leveraging their important status to receive higher commissions and better deals with their advertisers. Whether it’s CPA, CPL, or CPC commission structures, there are a lot of high paying affiliate programs and affiliate marketers are in the driver’s seat.

Affiliates were among the earliest adopters of pay per click advertising when the first pay-per-click search engines emerged during the end of the 1990s. Later in 2000 Google launched its pay per click service, Google AdWords, which is responsible for the widespread use and acceptance of pay per click as an advertising channel. An increasing number of merchants engaged in pay per click advertising, either directly or via a search marketing agency, and realized that this space was already occupied by their affiliates. Although this situation alone created advertising channel conflicts and debates between advertisers and affiliates, the largest issue concerned affiliates bidding on advertisers names, brands, and trademarks.[39] Several advertisers began to adjust their affiliate program terms to prohibit their affiliates from bidding on those type of keywords. Some advertisers, however, did and still do embrace this behavior, going so far as to allow, or even encourage, affiliates to bid on any term, including the advertiser's trademarks.

A browser extension is a plug-in that extends the functionality of a web browser. Some extensions are authored using web technologies such as HTML, JavaScript, and CSS. Most modern web browsers have a whole slew of third-party extensions available for download. In recent years, there has been a constant rise in the number of malicious browser extensions flooding the web. Malicious browser extensions will often appear to be legitimate as they seem to originate from vendor websites and come with glowing customer reviews.[32] In the case of affiliate marketing, these malicious extensions are often used to redirect a user’s browser to send fake clicks to websites that are supposedly part of legitimate affiliate marketing programs. Typically, users are completely unaware this is happening other than their browser performance slowing down. Websites end up paying for fake traffic number, and users are unwitting participants in these ad schemes.
Some merchants run their own (in-house) affiliate programs using dedicated software, while others use third-party intermediaries to track traffic or sales that are referred from affiliates. There are two different types of affiliate management methods used by merchants: standalone software or hosted services, typically called affiliate networks. Payouts to affiliates or publishers can be made by the networks on behalf of the merchant, by the network, consolidated across all merchants where the publisher has a relationship with and earned commissions or directly by the merchant itself.

Ad esempio, se io avessi una pagina Facebook che parla di ciclismo, potrei iscrivermi al programma affiliazione di Amazon e iniziare a fare recensioni di vari prodotti che interessano agli appassionati di ciclismo. All’interno di ogni recensione potrei inserire il link per acquistare il prodotto su Amazon. Se i miei fan cliccheranno sul link ed acquisteranno quel prodotto (o anche altri prodotti) entro 24 ore, Amazon mi riconoscerà una commissione proporzionata all’importo dell’acquisto.
Fatto ciò, l’affiliate network si premura di trovare affiliati che vogliono promuovere l’ecommerce in questione offrendogli una percentuale, ad esempio, del 12% su ogni vendita. In questo modo, il network ha un 3% di guadagno su ogni vendita che l’affiliato realizzerà. Il guadagno dei network di affiliazione, infatti, è generalmente il 20/30% rispetto alla commissione pagata dall’azienda per l’affiliato.

Invece di essere un servizio che offre prodotti che un sito web o un blog può promuovere, Google stesso è responsabile per la scelta dei prodotti che sono promossi sulla vostra pagina attraverso il suo algoritmo. Tuttavia, ricordati che puoi bloccare la pubblicità di alcuni siti web e prodotti e scegliere in quali spazi Google inserirà gli annunci.

Il secondo soggetto è il publisher o affiliato che partecipa al programma iscrivendo il proprio sito web, portale o web property inserendo il codice JavaScript che ospiterà le inserzioni. Il publisher successivamente tramite attività di promozione search engine optimization (SEO) e search engine marketing (SEM) acquisirà traffico sul proprio presidio web promuovendo le inserzione del merchant insieme ai propri contenuti.
