    Hi,

    I have a question for y'all. Is it possible to push an affiliate link to the top of the serps? I am part of an affiliate program and my affiliate link looks like this

    reputablecompany.com/category/product.asp?product_id=xxxx&partner=MYAFFID

    So theoretically, could I link to this page and conduct a lot of offsite SEO to try to drive this link to the top of the SERPS for that particular product? The end result being THEIR site ranking, but me collecting the commissions?

    Anyone done something like this and know it it's doable? or does Google take the result with the least amount of queries and use that ?

    Pointers anyone?

    It used to be possible back in the day. These days, Google reserves the right to place THEIR affiliate links at the top(ads), so YOUR affiliate links are bad and theirs are good.

    the best way to do this is build you a link wheel around this which will drive it to the top but it can be done just depends on how much competion

    It'd be very difficult to rank above the site in the results. Unless you're building tons of very high quality links to your affiliate URL/Page I don't think you'd stand much of a chance.

    May be, because i sometimes still see clickbank affiliate link ranking on front page of google.
