Wikipedia - The Free Encyclopedia

Last Update: March 11, 2014

Well, I don't usually use Wikipedia as a credible reference.

Because Wikipedia is written and edited by users, it is always hard to tell if the information found therein is credible or not. Let's face it, some people have "know-it-all" type personalities. They often speak out of their arse and not out of actual knowledge on any given subject.

Once in a while I am compelled to check Wikipedia for terms, keywords etc. just to see what comes up. The fact that I'm a full time online undergraduate has really honed my research skills. I do do some pretty "mean" research. I can usually find information about anything on the Net, and I do mean anything.

Not only are keywords "key" to good marketing, they are also the "keys" to good research.

I decided to post a Wikipedia page link here that I found regarding affiliate marketing. It actually appears to have some very detailed and comprehensive information. The content is not only about affiliate marketing, but about it's different components and other overlapping internet marketing methods. I felt it was an interesting read. Enjoy.

Hi Jeannie! Thank you for your "two coppers worth." Never heard that term before! :-) Wikipedia is useful however; you are correct in being cautious with it. Appreciate you sharing this with us today!
