Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
I use the LinkShare program and their affiliate banner code is quite bulky and contains a HREF link to LinkShare and the image source within the <a href> tags is the actual merchant (i.e. [merchant-xyz.com)....]
Does anyone have any ideas on how Google interprets this?
Does it see one or two outbound links, or does Google ignore the affiliate code completely?
Can it hurt my rankings in any way?
