    If I put Hubpages Link tracker on my blog, How will google look at it?

    Does Google see it as paid link and penalize my blog or is it considered normal link?

    I think Google just considers it a normal link. No penalty.

    The trackers here at hub pages don't look like a regular affiliate link, and that's what makes it the best link structure to promote, as far as I know Google doesn't penalize affiliate links, but there is some kind of secercy around the actual algorythm that googles search engine uses, nobody knows the exact workings of it, but it's generally accepted to have your own domain name eventually and drive traffic through that, with related affiliate stuff.
