Javascript used to ignore text by SEs?

I have a site where each page has approx. 500 words of unique content and 500 words of advertising content made with 5 affiliate links. The advertising content is the same on each page.

Is there a way to write that advertising content in such a way that it is ignored by search engines? Javascript text?

This isn't secret text, or keyword-stuffed text. Nothing bad will happen if search engines read it... except that it dissolves the page-specific content.

Some search engines read JavaScript text these days.

Another possibility would be to put the advertising stuff in a iframe, this way it is not on the same page and you can even disallow the framed page from being indexed if so desired.

Great suggestion; thanks! I typically do not think of frames precisely because they are not SEO-friendly!
