    I have a problem, when i put my affiliate links on my WH/BH sites google is banning my sites. When i put sites without any links, all is good. What's the best way to hide affiliate links ? Should i make another site with just affiliate links (sell site) and link to it from my SEO BH/WH sites ?

    Using a redirect, whether js, htaccess, meta refresh, or php redirect on a page should have no impact on the entire site, only that page. Sure you won't have that page ranking in the SE's, but that's why you build other pages around your affiliate, then link it to your jump page.

    However, I've built numerous affiliate sites and I can't recall Google ever delisting them just because of an affiliate link. I'd be looking a little closer to see why they are not sticking.

    I have many pages that have affiliate links in them and they are indexed in Google as well as other search engines. If google is de-indexing your sites, it must be because you're doing something else in addition to including affiliate links.

    Is there something else that you've failed to tell us?

    Exactly, the affiliate links can't be the issue.

    Because I share the same thing as inter and I have no problems.

    Maybe it depends on the niche You're in. I'm in pharmacy & casinos, i guess google can find links to online casinos and viagra, phentermine pills offensive.

    On the other hand maybe, you're right. Will need to do more research.

    I think you may have discovered the reason for the problem, it's related to the niches. I haven't been doing anything related to drugs or gambling - most of my links are internet money making related.

    You need to use the same method, a link to a site that redirects.
