Think about it this way. Will 500 affiliates sell more for you then page 85 of Googles search results? You really have to focus on both these issues. Don't have to many out going affiliate links. Try to run your affiliate banners from your domain name, not the affiliate networks. This way you are still counted for incoming traffic. Run your own in house affiliate program if you can.
