What Tools are available to Promote Wealthy Affiliate?

What is an Affiliate Link & How Does it Work?

An ‘Affiliate Link’ is a website url (address) with a unique code to you.
For example this is one of my affiliate links for Wealthy Affiliate:
The last part ?a_aid=f93f7a44 is my unique code

Visitors who click on your affiliate link will be directed to the offer you are promoting on the suppliers website. Should your visitor make a purchase through your link the supplier will know from the code that the commission is due to you.



Clicking an affiliate link creates a ‘cookie’ on the persons’ device, meaning the affiliate link is saved on the persons’ device.

‘Cookies’ are saved to the Web Browser used

The supplier of the affiliate link reads that ‘cookie’ to identify who is due the commission

‘Cookies’ remain on the persons’ device until:
That ‘cookie’ is overwritten if the person clicks on a different affiliate link to the same offer
Or the person deletes cookies from their device
Or the cookie has expired

Other reasons your ‘cookie’ would not apply:
The person uses another device, replaces the device they originally used
The person uses another web browser to the one they were cookied


WA affiliate links are ‘Lifetime Cookies’:
Meaning if someone goes through your affiliate link to WA, doesn’t sign up or purchase a membership, doesn’t visit WA through someone else’s affiliate link after yours and even a year later revisits WA from that same device where the cookie is saved your affiliate link gets the referral. In other words the referral is due to the most recent clicked affiliate link.
