Websites and services based on Web 2.0 concepts—blogging and interactive online communities, for example—have impacted the affiliate marketing world as well. These platforms allow improved communication between merchants and affiliates. Web 2.0 platforms have also opened affiliate marketing channels to personal bloggers, writers, and independent website owners. Contextual ads allow publishers with lower levels of web traffic to place affiliate ads on websites.
Affiliates were among the earliest adopters of pay per click advertising when the first pay-per-click search engines emerged during the end of the 1990s. Later in 2000 Google launched its pay per click service, Google AdWords, which is responsible for the widespread use and acceptance of pay per click as an advertising channel. An increasing number of merchants engaged in pay per click advertising, either directly or via a search marketing agency, and realized that this space was already occupied by their affiliates. Although this situation alone created advertising channel conflicts and debates between advertisers and affiliates, the largest issue concerned affiliates bidding on advertisers names, brands, and trademarks. Several advertisers began to adjust their affiliate program terms to prohibit their affiliates from bidding on those type of keywords. Some advertisers, however, did and still do embrace this behavior, going so far as to allow, or even encourage, affiliates to bid on any term, including the advertiser's trademarks.

On attribue souvent à Ralph Cordiner, l'un des managers de General Electric dans le rapport annuel de l'entreprise en 1952 (p. 21), d'avoir donné au marketing le rôle qu'il a aujourd'hui. Il y écrivait : " Ainsi, le marketing, au travers de ses études et sa recherche établira pour l'ingénieur et la personne en charge de la planification et de la production, ce que le client recherche dans un produit donné, quel prix il est prêt à payer ainsi que où et quand il le désire. "
Diversifier ses liens pour ne pas dépendre que d’une seule plateforme. En effet, si demain Facebook décide de bloquer ton compte et que tout ton business se base sur Facebook. Tu perds ta source de revenus et tu dois recommencer avec un autre système. Il est donc intéressant de diversifier les méthodes d’affiliation dès le départ de ton activité. Ou tout au moins connaitre la façon possible pour rebondir en cas de problème. Sans quoi cela risque de prendre du temps avant de t’en remettre.
