Since May 17 we lost up to 65% search engine traffic from Google, this is major hit by Google :(
Since EXACTLY may 17 one of my sites has done exactly that. It's not the same on my blog or on my technical guide site, it only happened to my affiliate site. I also noticed that product descriptions show up in Google ONCE for ONE affiliate but all others with that product are supplemental. Google has tightened up the affiliate reigns so to speak, probably in advance of their big announcement entrance into e-commerce next month.
What to do? reduce the number of offers and increase the number of offer free pages.
edit: a side note, many of my affiliate pages on that site have an additional link to the same site which brings visitors to a how to page. The pages without the extra link are all untouched in rank and traffic. Perhaps number of different offers is the key?
