Most affiliate networks and affiliate tracking software will allow you to put tracking codes in your affiliate links. These tracking codes help you to identify where your sales are coming from. Affiliate tracking codes are like promotion codes; they help marketers identify the source of a lead or sale.
To determine what keywords are generating sales just add the keyword from your tracking URL to your affiliate link. Once you have done this you will be able to see what keywords are generating sales.
Each affiliate network and affiliate software program has its own implementation of tracking codes. To find out how to use tracking codes with your network or provider, check out their help section, or contact their support department.
