Hi we're thinking of placing affiliate links on our sites.
I was just wondering if anyone could advise me of the best method to place links.

Should I place the links:


and then have this URL redirect to


if I do this should I redirect using a 301 or a 302.

What I donít really want is for the SEís to penalise my sites and what Iíve read so far 302ís are a big No No

Any advise would be greatly appreciated.

I know some site redirects to affiliate link and sends 500 header.
