[What is difference jQuery selectors]

The difference is that $('.ajaxLink').on('click', function (e) { ... } only binds elements that already exists.

$(document).on('click', '.ajaxLink', function (e) { ... } has an delegate and also binds .ajaxLink elements that are created dynamically in the future.

If you want an delegate you really should use a parent that is closer to the child elements than document . The reason being that is saves unnecessary searches in the DOM tree, which gives better performance.
