    For me that is a 1000% yes.

    One of the things i keep in mind for I-gaming SEO is to not let google know that your trying to make money which sounds stupid but thats just SEO these days.. (using 10,000 links to affiliate programs and casinos makes that very visible)

    Create the affiliate links as shown above and set them to no index. So many advantages

    That is wrong in many ways both for on page SEO and tracking and statistics. What you should be doing is (if your on wordpress) is installing a plugin called ''affiliate links lite'' (theres many) which then allows you to make links like this.

    www.mywebsite.com/go/leovegas

    When the user clicks that link it redirects them to the affiliate link you have set.

    Doing this ensures your website is not losing link juice all over the place. Not only that but doing things this way allow you to track how many visits a link has had and mother other reporting statistics which help you to find out which affiliate programs are pulling your pants down.
    google has clearly stated in the times that PR was available to the public that link juice gets divided by all links on a page, and in case of adding nofollow on a link the link juice of that link is gone. it won't get added to the rest of your links. so, you are losing link juice.

    No because the link shows as in internal link as its still pointing towards your own site, So as far as google sees there. You are not pointing elsewhere meaning you lose no link juice at all. Its seen as an internal link.

    As i stated in my previous message, that's not correct ("link juice gets divided by all links on a page").

    by adding nofollow you tell google to not follow that link, you dont tell them if it's internal or external.

    i add nofollow on all of my affiliate links, as i dont want link juice to go to the affiliate programs, so on that we do agree. it's not going to give more link juice on your own site however.

    I totally understand what you're saying.
    you have on the site mysite.com/go/whatever with rel="nofollow on that link, as you don't want google to follow these links.
    you have added /go/* in the robots.txt.
    then you have a 301 redirect from mysite.com/go/whatever to the real affiliate link, which means permanent redirect (301) mysite.com/go/whatever to the real affiliate link.

    No...

    NoFollow is only for google search engine... But i think and i have tested that if you use link masking, there is no need to nofollow...

    I dont want to give linkpower to youtube. I want to put the embeded link nofollow. Where should I put nofollow in this case?

    No risk whatsoever.

    I got this message from a friend. I am not ecpesially inserted in no follow links.
    Is this very important will it hurt your seo and ranking if you dont use no follow ?

    Do you know an easy way to create a no follow link ?
    Why do you use no follow ?
    It won't normally hurt your SEO.
    It could hurt, in theory, only if you are promoting some casino that is extremely spammy. Your link to a spammy site could mislead Google into believing your site is spam too. Unlikely even in the worst case scenario, but still possible.

    The main reason affiliates use the nofollow is to avoid passing link juice to the operators, which are partners when it comes to affiliate, but are competitors when it comes to SEO.

    So, the nofollow on the affiliate link is to avoid giving them an advantage, more than avoiding you get a disadvantage.

    Said this, a couple of spare thoughts, coming to my mind by reading a few replies in the thread:
    • if you do a redirection (the classic /go/casino -> 302 -> affiliate.linkto.casino/trackinglinks), Google will still follow that redirection, so it's not the exact equivalent of a nofollow. It becomes very close to be equivalent only if your robots.txt is blocking googlebot from crawling /go/. However, there's still a big difference: with a nofollow, Google can see where your link goes, but it won't give to that link any power to influence any ranking (a nofollowed link is really like a "no link here"); with a block on the robots.txt, Google won't know where the link goes (because it's not allowed to follow the redirection). In practical terms, it might be the very same thing. But in theory they are pretty different things. I would say it's up to you if you want to use one, the other, both, or none.
    • the link juice is not everything. This is 2019, not 2002. It's not just a matter of doing PR sculpting. So, you might really want to leave everything open (but again, up to you), so that Google can see your whole site.
    • PR sculpting doesn't work anyway because many years ago Google changed the way it shares the PR through the links within a page. Before, the PR was distributed through the dofollowed links. Now, it's distributed through all links, and then nulled for the nofollow.
    In theory i'm a SEO. In practice i solve problems. A bit like Winston Wolf.

    You can use friendly url's on your own domain and 302 them to the tracker url

    No risk if it is done correctly. Let me explain why, so this is just a heads up for the people who try to do it the first time.

    I've learned it the hard way, but recovered quickly. I am using a couple of WP sites with templates, and after getting the aff links to redirect clients, I only added those links on the website without any masking or nofollow rules. After I studied a bit, I found out that I should have hidden the affiliate links because it might be bad for SEO.

    So, I started to create redirection links in cpanel, and then updated the links to domain.com/go etc, only to realize that I had been ending up with 404 errors for all of the links I have changed for a whole week. After I started to see no clicks on the aff panels, I found out that I had to cut the redirection text in the htaccess file and then paste them on the very top of the htaccess file in order for WP to recognise and smoothly process the redirection.
