    I just got a message from a potential customer asking me some things about building SE popularity with our affiliate program. He said SEs get confused with uncommon characters in URLs ( ?+= etc.) and are therfor programmed to ignore such URLs. So if the SEs ignore such URLs then our affiliate program won't help him with SE popularity (since it contains ? and = in the URL: ).

    I'm not exactly a SE expert so I want to hear your experience with Search Engines ignoring URLs that contain uncommon characters. I suppose different SE might treat this issue differently.

    Tell him he's talking absolute rubbish.

    The SE's that matter (Google, Ink, Fast) all index and follow dynamic url's just fine.

    There are anomolies regarding the passing of PR though, a shady area at best...

    (OT: Am I the only one here who thinks an affiliate manager worried about the effect on SE rankings from his/her affiliates' links is waving a big red flag?)

    Could you elaborate on that? If it's posted somewhere already, I missed it...
