    It's impossible. I have websites, both in English and some other international languages, with affiliate links and have never felt Google has made any difference.
    It must be something else.

    Through an affiliate link? Really? Hm that's interesting. For the future, try perhaps a PHP redirect so that it'll mask your affiliate link, yet still take your users to the same spot.

    i did have a link to another domain i have with a content locker and the reason i did it that way is to keep this site clean.. :(

    What the hell is google's problem? They will lower your rankings, email warn you and possibly fine you for posting affiliate links?? Is there a way around this because clickbank mentioned (in their do's and don'ts) something about how masking/cloaking your affiliate links might cause problems with payment, so how do you get away with having affiliate links on your website then??

    I don't think it's the affiliate link that caused that. I think it's just a coincidence. I've changed affiliate links plenty of times for testing purposes and haven't seen any rank drops.

    I don't think they punish you alone, there is another thread here created today with a lot of people (incl. me) who are undergoing big slaps from google. I had/have #4+ with 10 keywords and since yesterday night they all dropped and they are not even in the top 100's anymore.

    It is not confirmed that google did another update, but it's very plausible they did.

    Baldor did you by any chance contact google to ask whether or not the affiliate link contributed to this? Hopefully it's not related but it sucks if it is!

    I don't think that affiliate link will cause such drop.
    If Google hates affiliate, then why are the affiliate company's site still standing strong?

    I guess it's related to what you've been doing to your sites recently, or simple minor update of google algorithm..
