How do they get URLs like http://www.example.com/?wm_login=webmasteridgoeshere&cf=&sub= indexed and to the top three positions?

They have no page, no keywords in the URL, no content. The only thung I can think of is lots of IBLs..

Any ideas?

I'd bet it's a black hat technique.

302 hijacking maybe?


shouldn't be anymore possible as far as the site says....but I am no black hat so I can't tell.

May I ask a question? Are you referring to links from a Google search showing an affiliate code in the results, but the site is not the affiliate site, but it is the site they are affiliated with?

#1 position on Google
(companyname is the maker of the widgets that the affiliate site is promoting. Meaning the domain is owned by the widget maker, not the affiliate)

He wants to get adult site affiliate links into the top spots. Because adult sites often just attach affiliate links as parameters to the normal URL, you can essentially steal their top listing by getting you raffiliate code spidered and ranked so it shows the same URL, but not with an affiliate link. I Happens all the time.

If you want to do that, you need to get a ton of high quality inbound links to your affiliate code. I assume you are talking about TCG sites. It's a lot of luck and for the most part you'll never get them.

Those people who have them more or less spam search engines with their link codes. Atleast those who keep them. Sometimes you just get lucky and get one. I wouldn't bother wasting your time on this. Chances are you will never get them. Also, if I were a sponsor, I'd ban you from my program if you are just spamming your affiliate link.

It's doable, if you can think outside of the "great content/high visibility/PageRank doesn't matter" box.
