It's a known fact among affiliates that have been in the game a while Google would rather not have them in the index and they do what they can to get them out.
That said, there are always ways around what Google is doing. They like to think they are so clever yet it's quite easy to use their uber arrogance against them.
goodroi is spot on with what he said:
We can spend more time talking about how google likes or does not like affiliate sites. I think it would be more productive for everyone if instead we talk about what real research we have to show what google is doing and how we are reverse engineering the algo. IMHO that is better and much more profitable.
Who cares what Google thinks of affiliates. There are many ways for affiliates to make money using Google and other search engines.
