    Need to cloak some affiliate links.
    I'm using WP + pretty link lite. Every link is 307, nofollow and then disallowed in robots.txt.
    Will this be enough to protect my ranking?

    I´m pretty sure that Google still knows if the links are affiliate ones. But it all depends, a few affiliate links shouldn`t make that difference unless you have those plenty per page. You can always make a site, rank and get traffic and then add affiliate links then you can see if the rankings drop or not. I really haven`t seen any proof that few affiliate links will hurt the site. There was a plugin (can`t remember the name) some time ago available which hides all links from search engine bots but not from visitors.

    Cheers

    There are a lot of plugins to do this, pretty link pro, thirsty affiliate... what I want to know is if they do more than I'm already doing.
    I don't think that meta refresh is still a good way of cloaking, right?
