    I think it might be a problem why google bans my sites, the fact that i 301 redirect all affiliate links i have on my site.

    so i have url: www.mysite.com/gotosupersalespage.php which redirects to my affiliate link.

    What ya guys think ?

    Put them in a seperate folder and prevent that folder for access by disallowing in robots.txt

    Disallow: /foldername

    You can keep your current php code unchanged. Just create a new folder (/go/ in the example) and put the php file there. Then open robots.txt and disallow the folder /go/ or whatever you name it. I do the same + I nofollow the aff links and never had a problem with big G.
