You have the ability to set which categories you want your WA affiliate links stats graph and overlay to display. By default I believe there are 10 that you start out with, don’t quote me on that. The reason I say 10 is because I have 2 categories that track my Custom Created affiliate links and a total of 12 categories available to choose from.

In the image above you will see the results of my WA affiliate marketing efforts for a weekly period between June 28 and July 4, 2015. This gives me a total breakdown of all aspects from sharing my WA affiliate links via direct sharing on social media and from the WA affiliate links on my website. This also tracks the clicks on my WA Content.

To understand a little better what each category is about, you would click the + symbol on the extreme right edge of the category breakdown chart. You can also modify your chart by adding or removing categories from your graph and breakdown chart. This can be seen in the below image. NOTE: I have all choices selected except one and I will explain why.

WA AFFILIATE LINK STAT CATEGORIES

I do not have the first category selected because this tracks all Clicks (Raw) of my WA affiliate links. This is a stat I do not want to track because it is misleading. It will track every single click. This means that if I were to click on my own affiliate link 10 times, it would track all 10 times. The same holds true for anyone else who clicks the link. So for me, it is a stat I can live without.

However Clicks (Unique) is the more desirable category to have because it will only track 1 click per unique visitor, making it the total opposite of Clicks (Raw). This gives a better indication of how many people are clicking my WA affiliate links. Even though this next category will track how many clicks go towards my WA content I create here, Clicks (Content) is also nice to have.

Being that we all can share our WA blogs and trainings on our websites (if relevant) and on social media, because we are the creator of said content, we do not have to use an affiliate link for it. We only need to use a WA affiliate link for WA content we did not create. So being that I have links to my WA blogs on my website, they act as affiliate links that people can join WA from, even though they are not affiliate links.

Great tutorial Robert! I didn't realise the difference with the raw, unique clicks, so I will take that on board!

You are welcome John. Definitely use Unique Clicks over Raw Clicks as unique is a better way to judge how many are actually clicking your links only once.

My website is extremely primitive. I am showing very few if any Unique clicks. What is really strange is there are almost Never any Raw clicks. So where are the Content clicks coming from?
Usually the Content clicks are in the single digits. But they have hit double digits once in a great while.
Part of my problem is, I have had to be away from WA to be with Mom (Elderly and disabled) most of my "free(?)" time.

Hi Edie,

The Content Clicks are coming from your WA Blog posts. But yes, the reason your Unique Clicks are low is because your website is not yet fully developed with many pages and posts of content. You need at total of at least 12-14 pages/posts before Google really starts to take notice of your site and push up your rankings and thus get you more traffic.

Thank you for helping me understand! So Are people within WA clicking on my WA blogs pushing the Content clicks up? Or are people outside of WA somehow finding my blogs?
I know these are probably "No Brainer" questions but that is where I am.

You are welcome Edie. It is most likely people within WA clicking on your blogs but it could also be some people from outside WA because our WA blogs get indexed into Google.

Thank you. I recall I had a lots of Raw and Unique clicks before I got my website. Almost makes me want to scratch my website!

Why were my stats so much higher before I had a website?

You have to remember that ALL of your WA Blogs and Discussions get clicks. The clicks do not just come from your website content. A lot of them come from your WA Blogs and Discussions because every one of those are considered your personal affiliate links. This means that you do not have to have a website to get clicks.
