    I wouldn't necessarily put a link on each and every single post. How about a simple banner ad with tons of content.

    No - not Clickbank specifically. But too many OBL's tell the search engine that your content is just commercial fodder. Not for "reading" but for getting people to leave.
    Control the number of OBL's per page or per site and you'll be fine.
    Less is more anyway.

    Yeah generally too many affiliate links on a site is frowned upon by search engines.

    Like Scritty said, less is more. You'll find that even one well placed text link can do wonders for your bottom line. You don't need affiliate links in every paragraph of every post.

    I agree with most of the posters - don't post too many affiliate links and you will be fine. However, having high quality content is even more important when you decide to put ClickBank links on your site. I say this because I've tested it out many times, when I would a CB affiliate link on an article of my site, the article would stop receiving traffic from Google. This could've been due to other factors, but I'm now much more careful about posting CB affiliate links on my websites.

    Cloak them and set to noFollow that will help a bit. You won't get penalized, but as the others have pointed out you probably won't be ranking as high if you just used a few select links. Also bombarding your readers with affiliate links on every post is just bad from the user perspective and will drive your CTR's down the toilet.

    One links is the same as many if you use javascript which turns other elements between span tags into links after the page is fully loaded. You need to call a javascript function from an external javascript file where the function that adds links is placed. Then block the file with robots.txt as well as htaccess and google won't able to execute it and learn that there is more than one affiliate link.

    Less is more, but with this javascript more is more. With more links you are able to have much better CTR.

    Over there is everything you need:
