    How do you link out to an affiliate offer?

    1) Nofollow or normal follow link?

    2) Directly to the url of the affiliate or a pretty redirect link ( something like yoururl.com/offerABC/ )

    3) If you use redirect, which one 301 (permanent), 302 (temporary) or 307 (temporary).

    I started using the pretty link plugin on my Wordpress blog. I have the impression my rankings are getting worse after I started using it. Maybe I'm using the wrong settings :)

    I used the 307 nofollow, my competitors are using 302 nofollow.

    It doesnt really matter, but you could redirect using 302.
