    Cookie stuffing is an affiliate fraudulent practice in which affiliate drops cookies in a user computer without sending him to the partner merchant website which set the cookies.Using an affiliate link a call is made to the merchant servers without the user knowledge. If there exist some more different definition then share them.

    Cookie stuffing is a blackhat affiliate marketing technique where the user receives a cookie from the targeted site which the webmaster of the site the user is currently on is trying to promote. The user don't know that the cookie of the targeted site is stored on his computer. The purpose is to earn an affiliate commission if the user later go to the store, which is the targeted site, and buy something.

    Cookie Stuffing
    • Placing an affiliate tracking cookie on a website visitor’s computer without their knowledge, which will then generate revenue for the person doing the cookie stuffing
    • Used to generate illegitimate affiliate sales
    • Websites that run an affiliate program, pay a commission to affiliates for introducing visitors who then complete one or more qualifying transactions

    A cookie is a tiny bit of code that a website drops in a user’s browser. Sites use cookies to store user data such as login details, shopping carts, or user preferences.

    Cookie Stuffing is a black hat SEO technique used by affiliates. Cookies stuffing is when a website that you visit places a cookie that is not for that website but for third party website.

    It is a technique in which, as a result of visiting a website, a user receives a third-party cookie from a website unrelated to that visited by the user, usually without the user being aware of it.

    cookie stuffing (also cookie dropping) is an affiliate marketing technique in which, as a result of visiting a website, a user receives a third-party cookie from a website unrelated to that visited by the user, usually without the user being aware of it. If the user later visits the target website and completes a qualifying transaction (such as making a purchase), the cookie stuffer is paid a commission by the target. Because the stuffer has not actually encouraged the user to visit the target, this technique is considered illegitimate by many affiliate schemes.
