    Home Page:
    Use a php redirect.

    PHP:
    <?php
    header
    ('Location:AFFILIATE_URL');
    exit;
    ?>
    Remember to use the nofollow attribute and block the file via robots.txt.

    You can use an url shortener + make your link nofollow. It's the easiest thing I can think of.

    I also, place the redirect in a folder (call it what ever you want) as index.php. So if I place the link in a folder named go, my link would be domain.com/go.

    1 link per file. However, I do not see why you could not rotate offers with a link rotator (see below - found online)
