Hello, say I have a site. www.mysite.com.
As I said in a different post, it's an affilaite template.
This is how it works
I have to create a cname in my control panel for the affiliate.
So my affiliate link would be www.affiliate.com/index.jsp?cid=123
So when I add a CNAME it would just look like


And it would really be pointing to the affiliate link.

Now, how would google see that? Would it affect rankings? Like would google just see it as the affiliate site, and not my own content?

Two, how do I properly link to www.affiliate.com/index.jsp?cid=123
so when you go to www.mysite.com it redirects to www.mysite.com/index.jsp?cid=123 which is really the affiliate link? A 301 redirect on say index.html?

This was in their notes, which had me worried and a bit confused:

A CNAME is not a subdomain, and should never be used as a standalone URL on your site. URL masking is not a search engine optimization technique

Hope someone can help. Thanks.
