    Are multiple (cloacked) nofollow affiliate links per page bad


    I run an affiliate site with quality content and pretty OK backlinks.
    The monitizing aspect is solely based on affiliate links to 20 "products".

    Those those are managed with wordpress pretty links and are all nofollowed.
    The urls are also disallowed in the robots.txt

    A lot of pages have numerous nofollow links to the same product (eg there can be 5-10 the same affiliate links on one page).

    Does this hurt my seo? Should I limit the number of links to the same affiliate link per page? Other options?

    Only guessing as we have not seen the site but generally you should keep your links to a minimum as it weakens your page rank flow around your site.

    I just linked some of the images in the post and a few buttons to the same affiliate link (eg www.site.com/go/aff-partner1 with rel-nofollow ).
    Now I wonder if I should limit the links to this affiliate partner per page to eg 1 or 2 links instead of 5-6.
