Has anyone ever uploaded an html page for the sole purpose of cloaking their affiliate links? I recently deleted several of these pages from my website because they were redirects that took visitors away from my site and I wasn't actively promoting these particular affiliate programs. There is a Google Webmaster video that says Google doesn't like cloaking and redirects. Nothing is mentioned specifically about affiliate links in the video, so I wasn't sure if they were talking about what I was doing or something else.
Any insights would be welcomed!
