In a nutshell, you write Google AdWords ads promoting a company’s product or service. In your Google AdWords ad is a link, and when your AdWords ad is clicked this link contains information about you and shows that the visitor came through you. When the user gets to the site you are promoting, your affiliate ID is registered automatically. Now when the customer buys something or fills out a form on the site, you are paid a commission. However, if the customer does not buy at the time, you do not need to worry as many merchant sites place small programs called “cookies” on the customers computer for as long as 180 days which is about 6 months. This means that if that customer comes back to the site on a later date and makes a purchase or registers for something, you still get your commission.
