Affiliate Links SEO:
Generally speaking, having too many affiliate links on your website can be bad for SEO because it could make your website look spammy or like it's trying to manipulate search engine rankings.
This could lead to your website being penalized or may be removed from search engine rankings altogether.
It's also important to ensure that affiliate links are properly disclosed and also tagged while doing hyperlink within the content.
On the other hand, if you use affiliate links in a responsible manner (i.e. not too many, relevant content, and naturally used) then they should not negatively impact your SEO.
So in conclusion, affiliate links don't necessarily damage or hurt SEO but it is important to use them responsibly while trying for the best user experience and useful content.
