    I have a new site, and I am creating the Sitemap.

    Do I include the affiliate link pages in my Sitemap?
    Ex. Aff_Link.htm redirects to aff landing page, do I include it?

    Also, any reason to include pictures (since I stole them all from the CPA networks)?

    no no it can harm at the time of indexing. SO if I were you I would not do that.

    What I do is create redirects for my aff links, and put them all in a folder (called 'go').
    That way I can track clicks, and some of these 'go' pages themselves get indexed (if you use metatags and H2 text on page.

    Also, they may help for sitemap page creation:
    h**p://***.sitemapdoc.com/
    Does standard HTML as well as XML (Google) and TXT (Yahoo) sitemap pages.

    Best

    I wouldn't do it either. Especially when you submit the sitemap to google. They will be able to detect the redirects.
