What is the SearchKing Affiliate Program?

How does the program work?

You do this by placing links, banners or buttons on your site. If you qualify, you'll earn a commission each time a visitor from your site makes a purchase of any of the SearchKing services. You will also receive a commission for every sale made through any of the sites who sign-up below you (up to two levels).
