Written by Allan Gardyne

Continued from page 1

To Google, affiliate links such as, and - onrepparttar page or in redirects - "strongly suggest" thatrepparttar 146621 site is a thin affiliate.

Are you using an affiliate datafeed? To Google, that's another warning sign.

However, if you offer a comparison of prices between different online merchants, you're OK, you're not a thin affiliate.

Google provides an incredibly tough guideline, which hundreds of thousands of affiliate sites fail to meet.

Google says:

"Do not call a page affiliate spam when an affiliation is only incidental torepparttar 146622 message and purpose of a website. To determine whether participation in affiliate programs is central or incidental torepparttar 146623 site's existence, ask yourself this question: Would this site remain a coherent whole ifrepparttar 146624 pages leading torepparttar 146625 affiliate (merchant) were taken away?"

That probably counts out most affiliate sites.

In summary, if you want to be friends with Google, make sure you provide extra value or content.

Note: A Google employee broke a non-disclosure agreement by revealing this report. I don't know how long it will stay online. You may want to do what I did - save a copy of it on your hard drive.

Now we know what Google really thinks of affiliates. You've been warned.
