    Hey, i am an affiliate and i normally cloak and redirect my affiliate links to the respective product pages as a way of protecting my affiliate links. I just read somewhere it may have negative impact on my SERP rankings. How true is that?
    For example "http://mydomain.com/allmylinks/productname" will redirect to the specific product i am promoting's page. Would that impact negatively on my rankings if i have such URLs on my pages?
