About 3 months ago I put an affiliate link on one of my pages.  My
page was a normal content rich page.  It went from top ten in google,
to way down.   I removed the link and have been scared of affilates
ever since and have focused on adsense.   Is there anyway to prevent
this?  Was this just a coincidence?  Thank you.

Re: How does google detect affiliate pages?

There was one piece of SEO advice that was unusually pertinent. The
advise was to never put bad stuff on good websites, and to put
bad stuff on the junk sites only .

It is hard to look at this instance without knowing dewtails, but if
you do not want to share, that's totally understandable.

Google, as most people, do not like affiliates. They are associated
with lying, worthless pages, etc.
