    I was having a look at the site of one of the products I'm promoted and curious to see where this product was being talked about, had a look at the backlinks through YSE.

    There were quite a number of backlinks coming from affiliate sites, however the link had to be merchantsite.com/hop= in order for it to count. If the links were the newer code.clickbank.net then it didn't get included.

    It's important to note that a lot of affiliates will use a redirect i.e. with a plugin like gocodes so you probably wont get any benefit there, also many affiliates will use a nofollow tag or write it in javascript in an attempt to stop Google following.
