Using The Same Affiliate Link In Niche For 2 Different Sites

3 replies
This has been a question that has been plaguing me for the past few months, so i figured I would throw it out to warrior members.

Let's say I have a site in a chose niche, for example purposes well say dating. On this so called site, I am promoting my favorite dating affiliate program.

Let's say I start a second site and target the same keywords (SEO purposes), Can I have the same affiliate link that I have on my first site in the second one, without causing a penalty in google?

To put it in lamens terms:

So for example I am targeting the keyphrase "plenty of fish review" (im not) and site number 1 reviews plenty of fish, and then at the bottom of my review I have a link to my favorite Dating site with the affiliate url Exclusive Deal at whatever.com

If I create a second completely different site that targets that exact same keyword, I have a similar review (but different as far as the Bots are concerned), and I post the same affiliate link (Exclusive Deal at whatever.com), will this cause a penalty in the google serps?

Any ideas?

    I can only speak from personal experience - no problem.

      Why should this be a problem? I do it all the time - because I often enter into niches bigtime with more than one serious presence and I would not dream of entering multiple niches if I could not do this.

      The only thing is that you may want to check with your affiliate program runner - although I hardly expect any affiliate program to have a problem with this (just my personal expectation).
