Hey, I'm working on setting up a 10-tier affiliate program for my site but I had a question about the links my affiliates would use.
The way I was hoping to set it up was to have the affiliates add '?THEIR_ID' to the end of whatever URL of our site. ex. [site.com...] or [site.com...]
My question is: When all these affiliates setup these links, will google pick them up as links directly to www.site.com or will they consider the "/?#*$!xx" part of a different URL/separate pagerank page?
If the latter, I was thinking about setting up a 301 permanant redirect for any URLS like "www.site.com/?xxxxx", that would redirect straight to www.site.com ... if I did this then, if not in the first case, would google count this as a valid incoming link to www.site.com?
