    Quick question, my mind is not working today but we are looking to reach out to some of our competitors affiliates to see if we can entice them to work with us.

    Is there a footprint I can use to track these guys down?

    Thanks!

    The best way is to find the affiliate links in the search engines, find the sites that they are listed on, visit the site and see if there is a contact email address. If the affiliate link is posted on the site, there is a good chance that the owner of the site is the affiliate.

    There used to be a reverse Clickbank search you could perform, but now Clickbank pretty much encodes all their links. You can use reverse Google Analytics to find all the pages one affiliate uses. That can help you find their contact information if it's not on the site you're researching.

    By and large, the product name or the tracking code are decent footprints.
