    Crucially, though, they didn't use the "nofollow" text that Google mandates for paid links. That, strictly, took them over the line on paid links.
    I know this was discussed a few years back but do you consider affiliate links to be "Paid Link"?? If so should all our affiliate links include "nofollow"?? About 80% of my affiliate links do use "nofollow" but I not sure if its needed or not.

    MERCHANTS: Start showing your coupons directly on your site, that way your shoppers will stop leaving your site looking for them!! If not then remove your Coupon Box!!

    No, affiliate links aren't paid links, the kind of paid links they're talking about. The ones bought and sold for for PR or search engine benefit.
