    Are you asking about

    a)whether a merchant will get search engine link love by having CJ affiliate links from affiliate sites, or

    b)whether the affiliate site can be helped with their rankings by having the outbound CJ links on their pages?

    earlier this year one of my affiliate links to a travel merchant (only a link, not a page on my site) was ranking on 1st page in Google for a semi obscure 3 word search.

    Just checked again & it doesnt show up now. Probably was just a glitch.

    Outbound links do not normally have a strong effect on your results, it is the links to your site that help you.

    they do not add anything to the merchant, but the given domiain within cj could recieve a pr boost if they haven't been tagged as no pr needed already...since there is no content being linked to.

    crawlable yes. anything you can do about it...very little unless you can work a database correctly.
