What is a Cookie?
Click on the link above and you can read what the exact defiinition of a cookie is - or I can simply tell you that if your affiliate link or banner is clicked then for the next 60 days, or whatever the length of your particular affiliate program cookie is - you have that long until the customer buys something and if they do - you get the commission....unless another affiliate banner gets clicked meaning the newer click takes precedence and some other affiliate earns the commission.
It will be necessary to work with code even if its just cutting it from CJ.com and placing it your site or blog - pasting it.
In commission junction I click on GET HTML and see a box pop up.
I then - copy the code and paste it to my site - under the Edit HTML button on blogger in create a new post or create a new page.....Here is my actual Code - pasted here and if I insert it in the code of the site it becomes the resulting banner.......
<a href="http://www.jdoqocy.com/click-3145535-10889145" target="_top">

Notice that the code above the banner was simply pasted in the text area of the blog - in order for it to be read correctly by blogger it needed to be added to the HTML of the page - thus the Edit HTML tab above, on the top right, paste and then go back to the compose tab - wholla there is the functioning banner.
