    Not sure whether this is the right forum!

    Affiliate websites link to Clickbank merchants using the URL http://hop.clickbank.net/blahblah/
    When somebody clicks on the URL, they are taken to the merchant's website.

    What about the Googlebot? Does Google consider this as a link to the merchant site? Does the hop.clickbank.net link contribute to PR?

    That's sad.

    But its still a link from clickbank.net to the merchant site right? Or am I missing something here?

    I thought that page rank was only calculated on those web sites that link to you, and not on you linking to a web site. If I link to Amazon.com I will add to their page rank. However, me linking to Amazon.com will not change my page rank.
    Do I have that right?

    Merchants: Do you realize that some of your affiliates are being paid commission on sales which you have paid for via PPC, offline advertising, and your targeted mailings?
