    Exclamation Found a link to my affiliate site on another affiliate's site?
    I was checking my logs today and found a familiar site as the referrer. Checked it out and that site has an incoming link to my site.
    This is not in the same niche but an exact merchant affiliate
    I thought that site was a competitor but why link to my site when I am not linking out to his ?

    Maybe they think your site is better and are doing their customers a favor

    How would you define "scraper" in the way you re using it here?
    I have seen references to "scraper" but they don't always connect.

    I am not sure here cause my site is only a couple of months old and that is more than 2 years. I agree that one of my content page is better than his site but it is not an authority page. In fact, in natural serps and backlinks his site is far ahead of mine.

    I don't think a 302 exploit is here. The traffic has not seen a major drop but I have certainly seen a drop in conversions - don't know if this is related.

    No, it is not a scraper and not a copy too - it is a clean content site

    Some of those automatic web page makers have scripts that go and copy search results and paste them into the page to give them content. I find my site pasted on other sites every once in awhile. And they get better search positions! I did read somewhere that Google was changing things around again in Feb to eliminate some of that crap.

    Rhia,

    Jmoore has explianed what I ment by scraper....these types of sites really tick me off, as I bust my butt to get to the top then they scrape the results of my site and many others, in an effort to out rank.

    New aff is this what you see, basicly search results spit out on the page?

    Newaff, what would have been better is that they paste YOUR affiliate links on their site.

    cheers!

    No, jmoore and mrbshouse. It is not a scraper site as you've described. It is a clean site but I think will have to do a close scrutiny to find why so.

    Oh, I know what kind of link you are talking about now.

    There are TONS of site that have my site name, links, and keywords listed and are plastered with google adwords. The latest addition I am finding is porn sites.

    Just more people littering the internet and leaching off the work of others. I am not sure if you can do anything about it. Maybe it is is one site you might be able to write them.
