A way around this problem is to take affiliate links to affiliate programs that you promote off your home page. Put them on your subsidiary pages instead.
This way a visitor has to click through a few pages on your site to get to affiliate link. And while they are doing that they are getting to know you a bit better.
They might find out that you offer a newsletter at your site or that you have some great articles that you or others have written. They like what they see.
And they are more likely to return again at a later date. You see they got to learn a bit more about you and your web site.
They still end up getting to affiliate link that they wanted. It just took them a bit more time. And it meant that you left some sort of positive impression on your visitor.
There are so many web sites out there and so many people that are promoting affiliate links. The one opportunity you have is to develop a relationship with your visitor. By moving your links to subsidiary pages you might have a better chance of doing this.
