Going back a couple of months ago someone posted a very interesting thread on how they had got their Amazon affiliate URLs (e.g. amazon.co.uk?tag=exampletag-21) ranked in Google, and were banking off the back of that organic traffic. I can't find the thread, so assume it got moved into JR VIP! Rather than Amazon (who I think changed their Ts and Cs since to not allow it), I've been testing quite a few other affiliate programmes who use a similar search engine friendly URL structure. I have no problem getting a very large number of URLs indexed and displacing the sites own URLs, but I'm not seeing any clicks within the reporting on these. Almost like the affiliate programmes are not counting clicks coming from search engines. The affiliate plugins/modules are well known ones used on oscommerce and magento that I've had no success with (PM me if you want any more details). Anyone had any success with ranking and banking off independent affiliate schemes? I'm not asking for someone to post the platforms that are working (why would anyone want to share that and let that get saturated after all?!), just trying to work out whether it is worth persisting on this method!
