    Hi all,

    I have a review site where I currently only have 1 outgoing affiliate link for each review (400 words approximately). I purchased a plugin that pulls items from the commission junction datafeed and displays them on your site (sort of like a price comparison). What I am a bit worried about is the potential for Google to look at my site as a bit spammy if I increase my outbound affiliate links too much. Is there a number that I should try and stick with?

    Thanks!

    For each post try to put one and in some cases maximum of two. Always mask the link to avoid being looked as spam.

    How to cloak links properly? I have heard you can't cloak links that easy, if you use url shortener google will find out, if you use javascript cloaking, most likely they'll find out that too.
