I've got a strange problem with Google indexing the .jpg images from my affiliate and attributing them to my domain. I was advised in the Google SEO forum that I can block these within .htaccess.
My affiliates image URL looks like this:
The JPG name is changing constantly as product rotates. What code would I have to insert into the .htaccess file to prevent G from indexing images from the affiliates domain name? I still want Google to index the images from my own domain, so blocking all .jpg isn't an option.

wouldn't you want to block everything from the thumbs subdomain? no matter what - these images can only be noindexed or excluded from crawling by the server for the thumbs.affiliateurl.com hostname. i assume that's not your server...

Yes, blocking the thumbs subdomain would be the ticket, and you are correct, it is not my server so I don't see how this is even going to be possible but maybe it is... I am very much a rookie when it comes to .htaccess.
