Last week I launched a custom affiliate program for one of my site. Custom in the sense that all the affiliate links passed nice SEO juice to the actual page they were linking to via a 301 redirect. They way I have it set up: mydomain.com?ref=john&sid=link 301's to mydomain.com?utm_source=referral&utm_medium=john&utm_campaign=link I've gotten some really nice backlinks with my anchor text on the homepages of some PR 4, PR 5, and even a PR 6 site. Change in yahoo and bing? Very positive! Change in google? Absolutely none! It's been almost a week now. Should I be worried? Should I drop the 301 and have the affiliate links go straight to the page? Thanks!!
