This is probably telling the majority of visitors to this website how to suck eggs, so please ignore this post or if you think there is a better way to explain what Affiliate Marketing is please add a comments.

So the top definitions are as follows:

A system of advertising in which site A agrees to feature buttons from site B, and site A gets a percentage of any sales generated for site B.

Again there a various ways to describe the same thing so here’s another:

A system of selling products or services in context over the Internet that allows online merchants to promote their goods or services within the content of tens of thousands of Web sites. Affiliate marketing allows merchants to pay their affiliates based on performance.
