    Is there a way to cloak the amazon links from Google with this plugin?

    The reason I ask this is because another amazon associates plugin cloaks amazon affiliate links from Google - is this even necessary? Is there a URL reference for a Google policy to downgrade SEO rankings for pages containing amazon affiliate links? If there isn't I'll delete the other plugin and go with this one.

    Anyone?

    Hi, no the plugin does not cloak amazon links. The links by default are set with "nofollow" so that google and other search engine bots will not pick up the links as per their policies. Cloaking is a feature I currently don't plan to support as in my opinion it obscures content to the site visitors.

    Thanks,
