A new site, can start with PR5 and after a while get adjusted (usually going down - unless you start with inbound links from day one, adding more constantly).
It might be you got PR6 from 1 or 2 high PR sites that were now downgraded or removed, so you're left with lots of PR1 - PR2 affiliates who provide one big PR0.

>>>what could the other reasona be?
there could be so many, I suggest you hire a competent seo to look at the site for you.Its no good guessing as acting on guesses can do more harm and not leave you any wiser.
About finding a good seo,i cannot help you but try in the comercial exchange forum.

Do you still rank for your kws?

we are in on our url but with an affilliate tag.
this may be a case of affilliates spamming our urls to get their tags in.
is this not a case of selling nikes at the door of a nike factory?

But you ranked before with more than your URL?

If you have the exact same content on www.domain.com as www.domain.com/?1234 but there are three links pointing to www.domain.com and a thousand pointing to www.domain.com/?1234 then Google will likely pick www.domain.com/?1234 as the canonical page and rank that.

Should be easy to detect if you check your main kw SERPs and an affiliate appears.
