    CJ link showing up in serps
    When I type in a search term for a certain product in MSN search and the number one result is a CJ link with my affiliate ID is that good or bad? I did not, to my knowledge, do anything to make that happen. Will sales track?

    I say it is good. Others will say it is bad, but if it were there link it would be good.
    MSN has a history of doing this.

    Yes, Its common on MSN, I have seen affiliate links many times, I have even seen DoubleClick, FastClick and Tribal Fusion Tracking links.
    MSN always looks for new websites to crawl, when it find affiliate link on your website, it considers it as a website, and storing the merchant site into the cache.
    Don't worry, Its MSN fault.
    anyway, will such links help. I don't think that searchers will blindly click on mysterious link, they look for title and details, if they find it matching to their search term, then they click.

    Thanks. I would be apprehensive about clicking on the link, too. The page I promote the product on is in the top ten results, but the cj link is number one.
