I am soon to launch a large datafeed side of 1000's of mobile phone products, I have read that link cloaking is good but have a couple of questions..

1. Folk say that comissions can be stolen, lets say 500 people visit my site each day [ that would be nice ]. In all honesty will there be many affiliates amongst my visitors?

I just cannot see this is the case, I could understand a possible problem in the online marketing world because we all buy each others products. I find it hard to think there are 1000's of affiliates stealing comissions on every day items like phones, shampoo etc..?

2. My pages will have 50% unique original content, will google penalize if the page contains 1 banner and 1 deep link to a product?

3. If after I get some replies here and linking is needed....

Is there a way to mask 1000's of links automatically? I use wordpress and have seen plugins, these seem to show I have to manually change every link by hand. This would be impossible for a large site that is frequently being updated..

For example could I mask "every" affiliate junction" link?

Thanks in advance to all those who reply..

Kindest regards.. David
