    Average word count on my posts is 2500 words. Right now I have average about 10 amazon affliate links per post.
    After each item I review in post, i add "Read more" button, and link it to affiliate link.

    Now, linking images to affiliate links would double outbound affiliate links, which would probably make me few more sales, but how good is it for SEO?

    I heard that having to many amazon affiliate links could be bad for SEO.

    But My posts are VERY HQ, they do help Visitors, its not just some poor website that try to just make fast profit, so I think that linking images as well could be beneficial for my earnings.


    Anybody with experience? :)



    Also, what do you think about linking text to affiliate images as well? :)

    I do a mix of text and image linking.

    For 2500 words, I don't add more than 10-12 links though.

    Do you also include buttons with affiliate links? (Check it out etc), or do you use ONLY text and images?

    I usually have no problem with images pointing to the affiliate link. Usually have 15-20 links in a review post.

    10 for the text
    10 for the images.
