    Sup guys.

    I have a site/page that's ranking where it should and I'm happy with it.

    Up until a few weeks ago, I never "cloaked" any of my affiliate links but read that exposing them is a no-no, so I went and changed that the correct way where appropriate throughout the site (disallow robots, 302).

    Problem is that the best page that's ranking has a list of the products. Before, I had the raw aff links there, but now I'm not sure I want to do it on this specific page because for some reason, I feel like I'm going to lose rankings because my list is around 20 products and the ratio of 302s seems sketchy (not sure if this is frowned upon by fuckstick Google).

    The other issue is that logically from a UX experience, when someone clicks on the product, they should be taken to the product review page on my site instead of Amazon, but noticed sales have dropped a little recently.

    What's your guys take on this?

    1. 302 the links on this page, it's fine.
    2. Keep the raw aff links on this specific page like it was before
    3. Give a better UX experience by redirecting to my review page where my aff links are anyways and leave it alone, even if sales go down.

    Many thanks fellas.
