    I have lot of popular outgoing links on my website.
    I'm using full page script from well known link-monetization company to make few dollars/month from it. It's enough to cover my hosting and domain needs.

    Basically it's some JavaScript code which alters webpage DOM and changes outgoing links to link-monetization company domain.

    Googlebot probably see both variations. non-JavaScript version which points to real outgoing URL and javascript version which only points to link-monetization company domain. Link-monetization company then shows some ads on their domain and redirects to real URL.

    Those original outgoing links are highly contextual to my own website in terms direct help to my visitors, they are extending my own content in very positive way.

    Can such script hurt my positions in SERP?

    I'm planning to remove it from my site for a while and watch for possible improvement. My site is more than year old, visited by googlebot every hour. How long would you wait before making any conclusion if it affects or not affects SERP positions?
