    Hi, I am completely lost! I can WRITE my Hubs but I don't understand the techie terms and I haven't a clue how to sign up to the affiliates. How does all this stuff actually work? Also, there's a TON of fields to fill in on the eBay thing and it's overwhelming....

        I need to know all the techie terms that confuse you, one page on my site will be all about decoding these terms (like hubs, capsules, seo, backlinks, etc..) think I'll start a thread to aquire hubers help so I don't miss any)

    I guess what I'm asking is how do you know if you're registered correctly with each affiliate. A couple of my affiliates have 'active' in the right hand margin but yet another is asking me if I have inserted the correct code. How do you know if your details are listed correctly? And can you lose revenue if you have published Hubs that are attracting traffic but haven't finalised the affiliate stuff?
