| Do you make it easy for your affiliates? |
Not all do.
I recently was setting up an affiliate product for a client and could not believe that the site owners had disabled right click.
Now come on guys.
Ask yourself why I would, as an affiliate, want to right click on your site.
The answer should be obvious, "To copy something.".
What would I want to copy?
Text, images, and code.
Text to add to my affiliate pages to promote YOUR products.
Images to add to my affiliate pages to promote YOUR products.
And code for banners as supplied by your affiliate program.
Did you know that disabling right click prevented me from copying the supplied code using right click -> Copy?
You don't make it easy.
Another thing you should consider is to add the rel="no_follow" tag to your affiliate links.
Without them, the affiliate page will not rank in Google.
Let me explain that.
In the last few 'adjustments' Google has done they are taking a hard stand on what they consider "Paid Links", in relation to crediting them with page rank.
They do not want to pass on 'link value' to links you have that will stand a chance of making you money.
They want links to be recommended on value of content.
