    I'm looking for the best SEO practice that will please both Big G & Amazon.

    I don't want Google deindexing the money site because it sees right through the affiliate links. I also don't want to make the traffic look suspicious to amazon by blanking/cloaking etc.

    So what does BHW personally use for longevity & long term success with Azon associates?

    You won't do Amazon suspicious by cloaking your links. No. They will ban you the second they will find out.

    Don't overspam your content with aff links and you will be fine.

    Nice. So just a nofollow tag would be suitable in this instance.

    Well, it won't help you that much, as I said, don't overspam it. And no matter what you do, G can still slap you anyway, I think you know how unpredictable it is.
    If you have amazon website use these 2 plugins for sure.

    Amazon Link Localizer
    Nofollow for external link

    The main reason to use something like skimlinks or a link redirector is to hide the affiliate nature of a website from Google/Bing -- not from the merchant.

    You can cloack it but dont use "cookies stuffing". Few of my buddies got banned from Amazon for that
