hey everyone so I was hoping someone here could shed some light on this maybe there was some thing I wasn't aware of basically what happened was I had all of my affiliate links on one of my sites as do follow which was about 50 affiliate links in total throughout about 20 pages. Well I decided to make all of the affiliate links no follow because of SEO advice from a bunch of people. I also decided to take the Amazon full affiliate link URL and instead start using the small URL which is more like www.AMzn.com/23425fsd. well the next morning I woke up and I've had the most ranking drops I've had in a year. could it be that making links no follow sends Google a signal that you're manipulating your results and drops your ranking or could it be that I changed the affiliate link to be a short url Amazon link and that drops my rankings because its seen as a redirect?
