    if you know the ip or the keyword or the site they cam from
    you can easy block them by redirect in php to other web page.

    Try making your affiliate links nofollow - any decent search engine should obey that attribute

    nofollow is the best solution, but if your CB links are using a cloaker they will filter them out accordingly as well.

    Shorten your links with a php script.
    Have that php script filter out user agents and ips.
    Iif the incoming traffic matches that of a search engine, kill the script, else redirect the traffic to the hop link.
