Here is my question....If I put certain segments of my site, that will be only accessable by my affiliates through their link, into a frames page would these links be spidered and counted against my rank in the serps and the PR? These segments (pages) would be in addition to, not instead of, the ones already there.
In other words, would this create a problem or a penalty?
I am trying to create an atmosphere of safety for the people who have joined me to protect their commissions from things like top text, whenU, Morpheus, etc.
I am very anxiously awaiting your answer and feel there are others here who would be interested also.

No I don't want to do that as there would be no seperate directory, just the same pages normally seen on site but called through a frames link that effectively puts them in frames. Each page called therafter would be framed. Other pages on site would have a link to free them.
To do this I would link to a frames page with the nav links in it and since they will be called from the same site and directory I wouldered if it would create a spider problem where they may be seen as dup pages when the spider follows the inbound links from other sites..
I am really concerned about this as I have worked hard to get this site known and do not want to lose traffic because of this.
If the theifware intercepts any attempts to set known referral codes and inserts their manufacturers then even a framed site will not help you - no matter what you do the code will be intercepted and rewritten.
That is basically my question: when coming in on an affiliate link and navigating through with the frames will the other links followed from a "normal" link and no frames be considered as dupes, therefore spam?
For my own protection, when not coming from an affiliates site, I have put in the fix for most of these on my main pages...haven't gotten the one for whenu yet but will in the future.
This the non refresh version.
Mod Note: There are many products available to help combat the problem of linkjacking. You can find most of them here [directory.google.com].
