Affiliate Marketing will have both good as well as bad effect on your website SEO.
It can be a fight for you to stand up on top for your brand keywords as the affiliates participating in your program can have better visibility than you. As opposed to it, due to you increased presence on these affiliates you may get a better rank listing on Google search pages on the broad keywords. Hence the indirect visibility routed through the affiliate websites can increase a lot, where as at the same time it can be difficult for you to hold on to your brand keyword SEO rank.
