    Google and affiliate id's on my query string


    I'm in the process of setting up an affiliate program for our company and have run into a Google quandry. Would Google see the following as one or two pages (and does it matter)?

    www.WiredWedding.com/main.asp?AfID=1234

    and

    www.WiredWedding.com/main.asp?AfID=4567

    I believe I want Google to see them as one page so that this page has the most links to it. My other solution is make all of the affiliates link to www.WiredWedding.com/main.asp and then sort them out by HTTP Referrer values, but this way is messy at best. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Paul

    I think google would see it. Google will now index past the ? in dynamic pages, so I think it will index them. Sorting out by referrers can get annoying... Anyone know if im correct?

    Yes, Google will see the above as 2 separate pages.

    Darrin,

    But could you enforce that? I mean, wouldn't that have to be installed on the affiliate's site? Google is already following the link with the ID when it reaches Paul's site.
