Network Earnings (CJ)
The Network Earnings ranking (lime green bar graph) shows how advertisers (merchants) rate with other merchants in the network based on the volume of commissions earned by their affiliates. All advertisers are compared by taking each publisher's total commissions, converting that total (if necessary) to US dollars and the ranking is established. The Network Earnings are based on a scale of zero-5 bars. The ranking is calculated relative to the entire affiliate network based on commissions earned by affiliates during the previous month.

Niche Keywords
These keywords are highly specific, but have low search rates. They usually have the highest ROI and conversion rates among all keywords in  a campaign. Often, there are not enough niche keywords to only rely on these to make up a campaign as there just are not enough searches done in a month for them to sustain a business. They are a nice addition to direct keywords as they usually have a lower bid price.
