Posting there to resolve my measure confusion which is not clear. So please reply.

I am getting some surprises with back-linking, & link scheme, Since i am an affiliate website owner, and provide eCommerce website offers at my website, and gives 302 redirection with nofollw tag for theses merchant links.

Issue is there - I have analyse on my competitor via Open Site Explorer and Ahref, And getting different way to grow up rank, traffic and also PR, i have found there e types of backlink First is Irrelevant Blog Comment and Second is Footer Links, They are placing our website link on E-Commerce Site Footer with Some time Follow and Nofollow. And Commenting on Unrelevent Blogs there no any information and totally different theme, And does not stop now, I am checking after while they rise there with Backlinks like Thousand Or Lakh with Footer and Blog Comment Only. Which i feels completely Wrong, Because they are taking -

Blog Comment Backlink - hyperlink with Keyword
Blog consist thousand of comment and like spamming

Footer Link - Placing our website link with "Website Logo" "Brand Name" with Follow and Nofollow Tags on Merchent Website which insert those offers on our website,
And getting Thousand of backlink with single URl, In footer place one link and get thousand of link with same website.

Note - They are going up and up, If these types of backlinking is fine for affilate website, So it should be follow by me? because this work not only by single competitor but also follow all competitors, if these links would natural, So please give right guide.

I hope it will resolve there

If you are doing competitive analysis and you have confusion you need to communicate with the competitor.

Asking someone that isn't including in the mind think is a flaw in your ability to understand.

Discuss here what you do. Ask the competitor what they do.

Once you have the facts about why they did something then you can ask here if they might be correct.
