    Hello. I have a quick question regarding affiliate links.
    SEMrush
    If a person were to click on my affiliate link, would they be able to get my real name or any other information from doing so?

    Thank you.

    Generally, no. Not unless the affiliate program uses a username as an ID and you use your real name.

    No. In the case of the Amazon Associates program, a Tracking ID is used to track your links. You can use any Tracking ID you like. Most people just use the website name to track the commissions for a particular site.

    The answer is no.

    Is there a reason you are concerned about this?

    Only if you have your name on the website or whatever method you are using.
