Welcome to WebmasterWorld Vishal! My apologies for the delay in responding. I had no specific answer for you when I first saw your post (and still don't!) and assumed someone would suggest something... My best suggestion is to visit [cgi.resourceindex.com...]
A quick search on "affiliate" returned lots of scripts, may be some potentials there.
FWIW, as a webmaster that does a good deal of affiliate sales, I seek programs that include a specific URL. The only other sales tracking method I've seen is cookie based and the tracking problems with it are obvious.

More thoughts... I'm in one affiliate program that links to a common page and includes the "?code" identifier in the <img source=...> section. If you write your own scripts this will accomplish what you want...

DaveAtIFG thank you for your reply.
In my search for Affiliate Program I have tried many resources including [cgi.resourceindex.com...] and [perlarchive.com...]
However, at this time, my hunt for Affiliate software without "?" in affiliate link is over - and am currently working on for the setup of the script.
About writing my own script - I am not sure, If I would be able to do that at this time. I am planning to learn cgi/pl but it will take me few more months before I can even start.
Just a Quick Q?
I am sure you must be familer with [academywebspecialists.com...] , in their website, they have mentioed that Google does not index urls with "?" within them, but after a quick search at Google this seems wrong, as there are tons of url with "?". Any comments on that?

It may be worth taking a look at Mals-e site, not sure it will be up to your needs but it is free.

Vishal - Indexing URL with a "?..." string is a recent addition at Google. INK claims to index "dynamic" pages and I haven't investigated exactly what this means. The consensus is that most major engines do not yet index these URLs.

Vishal or anyone else have any luck with affiliate tracking software? Looking for a URL based program that can also help you track bogus click throughs. Thanks in advance.
