First, congrats on your first sale, that's exciting, it's the first of many more no doubt... now let's get you tracking your keywords to find what works and what doesn't :wink:
Most affiliate progarms have the capability of creating SIDs, (session ID or shopper ID)
all you have to do is create a SID for each keyword if your affiliate link says "SID=" you would insert "SID=keyword" (no parenthesis) Or many (like CJ) ask you if you have a SID you would like to insert and they'll generate the link code for you. Then when you pull up a sales report, you'll see your activity by keyword SIDs.
Another option is to buy tracking software, I use Adtrackz.
This will create a special link for each one of your campaigns, ads, keywords... what ever you wish.
