Aletta can you also add active links and inactive links its terms found in ezine's editorial guidelines that doesn't make sense to me because to me an inactive link is a link that does not work.

anchor text.

I thought I lknew what it was and just read my Ezine newsletter and it's talking about anchor text in the body of the articles which I thought wasn't allowed, so now I'm wondering if anchor text is what I thought it was?

Oh and I just watched one of the webinars on the blog and they are talking about JV's. Got a vague Idea but seemed to have missed the explanation.

Thanks CashPro, good contribution.

We're looking at releasing the entire glossary in the next few weeks, and making it available on our site.

Well like all good ideas, things take longer than you expect but we're pretty much ready to roll this one out - expect to see the affiliate marketing glossary live on affilorama.com any day this week ... possibly even tomorrow!

I'm expecting that I won't sleep well tonight out of nervous excitement ... :p

Just out of curiosity (because I have an idea to do something similar myself, but on a different topic), did you build the glossary with a database?

(It looks great, btw ;)

The glossary does run on a database, which is the best way to keep something like this organized, particularly when you're adding, editing or removing words.

Then you can use a front-end built on something like PHP to deliver the data in a presentable fashion.

Thanks Mark.

I had been doing a similar idea a number of years ago (long hand) on basic computer terminology. One idea I had that I would have loved to have pulled off if I could have figured out how to it at the time was if I had a word in the site, it would link to the definition. Doing that by hand would be a pain, but if it could be done with a script...

Thanks for the reply, though!
