Incoming Links: Does example.com differ from example.com/?1234

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?

Any help would be great!

Thanks! :)

Separate pages.

I was thinking about setting up a 301 permanant redirect

This should solve the problem.

I had the same question. Are you sure it will solve the problem and google will then consider all as backlinks?
This is very important for me.
