An affiliate network helps publishers to monetize their inventory by providing a variety of options, as well as all necessary tools for running campaigns (tracking links, creatives etc.). For advertisers, affiliate network services and benefits include payment processing, ad tracking technology, ad campaign reporting tools, as well as access to a vast database of publishers. Affiliate networks work on a CPA (Cost per Action) based model which means that they can effectively deliver a 100% fill rate for publishers. Some publishers, known as ‘affiliates or ‘media buyers’ will create or buy traffic using advertising specifically to promote campaigns from a network (rather than just to monetize existing inventory).
Tradedoubler was founded in 1999 by two young Swedish entrepreneurs. They have offices in the UK and multiple countries throughout Europe, including Sweden, Germany, France, Poland and Spain. Their focus has always been to provide smarter results for both clients and affiliates through technology. In 18 years, they’ve amassed an army of 180,000 active publishers, connecting them to over 2,000 merchants in Europe and the UK. Many of these merchants are household names.
Before APIs, publishers would garner a collection of images and paragraphs of content from the merchant or the affiliate network representing the merchant. This content may have been of great quality, but it could not shed the risk of becoming stale or having links become outdated. One approach to mitigate this problem required the publisher to sacrifice a section of real estate on their site for a snippet of code to render a data feed. Though possible, before APIs, the “snippet approach” made it hard for the publisher to integrate dynamic content throughout their site.
(This would make a lot of sense: Groupon itself has been working on expanding its travel and local experiences business as part of its effort to diversify beyond daily deals from local retailers. Recent moves involve a partnership with Viator to boost its inventory of local activities, and acquiring LivingSocial, which had also reoriented itself to focus on that sector after its own daily deals business took a nosedive.)
Search engine optimization, or SEO, attempts to improve a website's organic search rankings in SERPs by increasing the website content's relevance to search terms. Search engines regularly update their algorithms to penalize poor quality sites that try to game their rankings, making optimization a moving target for advertisers. Many vendors offer SEO services.:22
Given that I am still in reading and preparation phase, I am mainly interested to overlap my niche with real life interests so I could have motivation to produce content on regular basis. Two that I am highly interested are PC parts and Fitness. I am aware they are too general subjects with lot of sites doing the same, but my idea is to produce constant review on PC parts, Laptops, Mobile devices, Accessories all in different categories, create lists like top5 or 10 under XX budget etc. Similar approach I would use if I I decide to go with Fitness path and divide content training advice, review of fat loss methods, supplementation, nutrition etc. I am aware that this will be a long journey and that it can pass few months before sales start to kick in and that’s the risk I am ready to take. My questions are:

For example, rewardStyle has aggregated thousands of high-value fashion affiliates who feature products prominently in their content, which makes it a highly lucrative channel for fashion brands looking to drive customer acquisition. In its first year, the company drove more than $60 million in sales by inviting fashion bloggers into its network and then fostering relationships between the bloggers and retailers. If a post led to a sale, the blogger received a share of the profits.
