internet retailer did a survey that concluded it was below 10% for the respondants (most of which are probably larger e-tailers)
i have no doubt, though, that there are lots of folks who get much higher %'s from affiliates
anybody care to chime in?
I really wouldnt want most of my traffic coming from 1 stream though.. i really try hard to keep it balanced (SEO, PPC, affiliates, email, articles (real ones), links (real ones) etc etc..
Keeping the flow of traffic balanced is a good idea. But I feel if you used affiliates only to get traffic, that is pretty reliable as opposed o relying on the search engines and PPC. Articles are reliable also once you get enough out there.
Anyone care to tell if they get a high percentage of traffic from affiliates?

The issue you just described is the exact reason why I would have a closed affiliate program where people have to apply to my affiliate program and I have to approve them first. I would make sure that the affiliate met my requirements.
I would also approach affiliates that I know are making sales and ask them to promote my site.
