    I have launch a wordpress site filled with amazon product that i get by scrapping them on amazon website .
    I have 25k product and about 40k indexed pages

    Today traffic is gone and i don't understand why .

    See Attached files:


    I don't think this it's because of agressive linking strategy , because anchor text are various , i didn't tried to make my homepage rank for a specific keyword

    the point is i use a nice javascript cloacking script to hide my affiliate links for google , basically here is what google see for each link :

    PHP:
    <span class='chingchong' data-title='item title' data-blank='1'  data-value='520a580a580a560a290a235a235a595a595a595a230a485a545a485a610a555a550a230a510a570a235a505a600a505a495a235a555a490a525a500a555a575a235a325a415a365a390a235a250a250a245a280a275a260a265a255a255a440a235a585a550a540a525a590a570a505a240a240a490a225a250a245'>3,80  euros sur amazon !</span>
    but i don't think this is the problem

    any idea ?

    It is dupe content.

    Where did you found the javascript cloaking script. I would like to have one copy.

    amazon affiliate link cloaking is unnecessary
    i've got a few sites with 1,000+ amazon scraped pages with non cloaked links
    they rank well
    it's your content, you gotta have unique content man

    Since everybody on this forum only click on "How to make 50k a day" topics i'll share my script directly here to let people who actually help other members gaining acces to it , thanks guys .
    PHP:
    <?php
    function cryptLink($crypt){
        
    $l strlen($crypt);
        
    $newTab = Array();
        for(
    $i=0$i<$l;$i++){
            
    $ord ord($crypt[$i]);
            
    $newTab[$i] = $ord*5;
        }
        return 
    implode('a' ,$newTab);
    }
    $var cryptLink('http://www.linktocloack.com/affiliateid');

    ?>

    <html>
        <head>
            <script type="text/javascript" src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.7.2.min.js"></script>
        </head>
        <body>
            <span class="unlien" data-title="mon titre" data-blank="1" data-value="<?=$var ?>">test</span>
            
        </body>
        
        <script type="text/javascript">
            
            var uncryptLinks = function(){
                $('.unlien').each(function(){
                    var v = $(this).data('value');
                    var b = $(this).data('blank');
                    var blank = '';
                    if(b==1){
                        blank = ' target="_blank" ';
                    }
                    title = '';
                    if($(this).data('title')!=''){
                        title = 'title="'+$(this).data('title')+'"';
                    }
                    exp = v.split('a');
                    chaine = '';
                    $.each(exp, function(k, v){
                        var chr = v/5;
                        chaine = chaine+String.fromCharCode(chr);
                    });
                    var c = String.fromCharCode(300/5);
                    var c1 = String.fromCharCode(485/5);
                    var c2 = String.fromCharCode(520/5);
                    var c3 = String.fromCharCode(570/5);
                    var c4 = String.fromCharCode(505/5);
                    var c5 = String.fromCharCode(510/5);

                    $(this).replaceWith(c+c1+' '+blank+' '+c2+c3+c4+c5+'="'+chaine+'" '+title+' >'+$(this).text()+'</a>');
                });    
            }
            
            $(document).ready( function(){
                uncryptLinks();
            });
            
        </script>
    </html>
    link is crypted in php and uncrypted in javascript post loading , it use jquery so google can't follow the uncrypting process.
    I've tested it using googlebot explorer , working great !

    You need the content to be spun if you're ripping it all from another site.

    The poster above said that cloaking isn't necessary, and for some people it isn't, but it's good security to have. thanks for the share.

    to be clear, i don't cloak links because it looks suspicious, and it can cause you to not get paid (breach of TOS)
    i do n0f0ll0w all outbound links to sites outside my own network and the one authority link i place, and spin all autoposts
    i think that with amazon's authority and lack of shadyness cloaking is not necessary for it
    with clickbank you may want to do that though, clickbank links have a bad rep with google
