For example, you are promoting an ad service that pays you
50% commission. You run one ad in a newsletter, another is
done via your signature in posting to a business list and still
another ad is exposed via FFA Link submissions.
You can code your ads simply by calling them ad001, ad002, ad003.
When you receive a reply to ad001, you will know it came from
the newsletter, ad002 will be a response to your signature and
ad003 will be from your FFA Link submission.
Use whatever code is appropriate for you but the important
thing to remember to code it and know to what it pertains.
If you have your own web site, your hosting provider might
already provide you with the tools you need to track your traffic.
All you would need to do is access your log info and review
which web pages are getting the traffic and study where the
traffic is coming from to visit you.
If you do not have access to such info from you host provider,
there are many good FREE online stat services you can use.
Here are just a few:

important questions about your visitors, like which part of

You may find that much of your traffic is coming to you from
a search engine or directory like Yahoo, http://www.yahoo.com/
or Google, http://www.google.com/.
You may also be pleasantly surprised to discover that a web
site with related traffic has linked your site and is now sending
you new visitors daily.
It would be a good idea to contact the owner of that new traffic
generator and let them know you appreciate the link and even
offer to link back to them in return.
Once you know where your traffic is coming from to find you,
it is important to maintain that flow of traffic and then try to
find other sources that are similar.
Doing so will allow you to increase the visitors and leads you
generate and hopefully, increase your overall sales.
