    If you're new to Internet Marketing, you must be reading through the threads here and trying to learn...

    I'm doing that too, and I came across plenty of abbreviations sprinkled in the posts which leave me quite bewildered.

    Thanks for the list, I'm going to alphabetize it and clean it up a bit and sticky it in the Lounge.

    I also added GT and PP to the list.

    EPN used to dumbfound me until someone clarified that it meant Ebay Partner Network.
    Also, I don't see CS but I guess we don't talk about such activities in BHW!! ;)

    The one that had me stumped was IBP (iBusinesPromoter). I kept hearing how folks found it better than xyz software, but nobody would use the full name so I searched it out w/the big G.

    Thank you so much for this contribution.

    I was really puzzled by many of these abbreviations.

    Now it's all clear. Thanks!
