I have a site that I used to have a few amazon affiliate links on. The site wasn't really converting very well so I just removed all the affiliate links about 6 months ago.
I recently logged into Amazon to start a new campaign for a different site and noticed I was getting clicks thru with my old tracking code from the site I removed the links from. I even had 8 sales this month!
So I googled my tracking-id and found out that someone has an affiliate site that is running several affiliate programs. I would say that maybe 70% of the affiliate links/ads are for Amazon and every single one is using my tracking id. Why would someone do this? The site is even fairly decent looking.
The site is indexed in Google but they have 0 pagerank and no alexa ranking. I don't think they get much traffic since Ive only had 40 clickthru's in the past 2 months but they seem to convert OK.
First off I'm curious why someone who appears to know what they are doing would add my affiliate id and second what do you think i should do about it?
