Ahh possibly a stupid question......but what exactly do you have to do if you want to become an affiliate?

I would appreciate if anyone can answer this question so I can get my answer and this post could soon fade away.

Uhm, Duh?

You put their ad banner on your web page and any sales that come from someone clicking through gives you a kickback.

Pretty standard stuff. That seems to be an alternate to real banner ads that work on a cost-per-thousand views model.

The other is the "panhandling" web site that respectfully requests donations in some small denomination (preferable some rounded amount like $10-25 a pop).

Why not just stand by the freeway with a "Will dot com for food" cardboard sign? Apparently those people make enough money to supply themselves in booze/drugs for days at a time (yeah you think they really want to "help" themselves or want to actually WORK :eek: ?)
