You never know how somebody might find you, especially in the case of a writer. Let's say one of the articles is about piano tuning, and some piano tuner out there is trying to figure out a way to promote themselves. They do a search, and they find your client's article. Now, of course if they're an evil piano tuner, they might steal the article, but they might decide that this writer should be brought in to write all of their promotional materials.
Ok, odd example, but you get the idea.
But if you really want to block the pages from being indexed, just use robots.txt. If you don't know how, see http://www.robotstxt....html#robotstxt or just search the forum for the term.

You may want to use some general keywords in title and before article content on page like "Freelance Writer: Article Sample- Piano Tuning".

But now that I think about it, that's probably a wrong assumption. I guess this gets back to the optimizing a page versus optimizing a site discussion. I just re-read a thread on that and if I understand correctly, every page stands on it's own but is also influenced by how deep it is in the site and what other pages it links to.

I guess this gets back to the optimizing a page versus optimizing a site discussion.
If there is some concept of the theme of a site, then in this case it's going to be that the site is about a writer. But every single page is an opportunity to talk about something much more specific: a writer for web sites, a writer of press releases, a writer of articles about tuning pianos.

Nope, you don't need to worry about that!
Well...I was thinking I should not have them spidered because they have very few if any of our targeted key words and would dilute the ranking of the rest of the site.
I would just leave it as is.

If you simply slap up one of those prepackaged "sales" pages that a lot of affiliate programs offer, then of course Google may decline to index the page -- because it's exactly the same as 10,000,000 other pages out there owned by all the other affiliates who did exactly the same thing.
If, on the other hand, you offer solid original content, supplemented by affiliate links -- for instance, informative articles with Amazon links at the end to books related to the subjects of the articles; or reviews of products or services with links allowing the reader to purchase the products or sign up for the services; or something along those lines -- then you should have no problem getting the pages indexed in Google or elsewhere.
The key is that you've created original content to go along with those affiliate links. The affiliate links, per se, are not going to be a problem, MHO.
