One thing you can do is adding different hoplinks for the individual pages. If you have got an article that targets, for instance, the keyword "stop dog barking" and you are promoting kingdomofpets.com's program then you could create a hop link with a tracking ID that looks like this: kopPOSTID.
First is the abbreviation of the affiliate program and the post ID is obviously the number wordpress automatically assigns to the post.
That way you know from what page the sale came from and which affilite program it was in case you promote different programs on one article.
You could do that even further if you have a banner and a text link in one article you could either add BL(banner link) or TL(text link) to the tracking ID so that you even know which one of the links get clicked more often and what link converts better.
Another way of tracking things where the sale came from is by contacting the affiliate program owner and ask them if they would add you analytics code to their "thank you for purchasing page". That would make things even easier for you.
Have a great day
