    Hi guys, I though to share this I found what was actually screwing of on my clients serp.

    After getting my clients pages in the fist page of google for the some forex related keywords, I found out that through the Google search that my clients page shows in Google instead of:
    http://www.domain.com
    as
    http://www.domain.com/
    ?hop=ahsam

    When I asked my client if he has build any links to the website he said no.
    So checking the links with scrapebox found out that all the links or most of them were built using SB and his hop ID.
    Pretty smart but in fact a scam
    I could have written a guide but as many of the people here own clickbank products and are huge affiliates, I thought It was my duty to make the community aware of this.

    I hope this will help to avoid someone to still either your commissions or if you own the page the % of the payment.

    Regards to all

    Al

    I'd click through that link and have a look at the bottom of the order page, i bet you you won't see his affiliate link at the bottom.

    I had the same done to one of our products but it never showed up at the order page as an affiliate just the usual "none"
