    I found a search type site today. rodar.com

    You input your search term and it coughs up sites.

    The kicker is, certain words in the the description of the sites are clickable and it appears that the owner of the serach site is putting their affilate links in OUR site descriptions, etc.

    I used free coupon codes as a search term, knowing that Connies site ranks pretty high in google and this appears to be google based search.

    Sure enough there she was, and words in her site description are highlighted, but I don't think this is her linkshare ID.

    Linkshare ID in the link is: 5L2zZ0Lq3Zs

    You can check it out here:
    rodar.com/web.php?search=free+coupon+codes]http://www.rodar.com/web.php?search=free+coupon+codes

    So, are they scamming on other peoples hard work or what?

    Same here.

    I searched for keywords of one of my small sites, and in the descriptions of the two listings that came up, one had the word "posters" linked to allposters.com, but with the Associate ID 299972, not my ID. In the other listing, the word "art" linked to a CJ site, but what came up was a message from CJ saying that the link had expired.

    I e-mailed allposters about the situation.
