On my site I use a parameter that tracks two things, the path that visitors take internally and affiliate tracking.

I want to maximize my affiliates as part of gaining links but at the same time I do not want to create duplicate content issues.

Any suggestions?

I think linkconnector might solve my problem

Anyone tried this kind of thing before?

So example.com links to you, site.com, with a link that looks like:

site.com?sourceid=1234

Are you cloaking the parameter from the bot?

Thanks for the reply.
