For an affilaite site which has many outbound links to affilaites on its index page or main pages, does this affect how a page can be best optimised?
The reason I ask is this and please comment on both tactics,
Instead of linking directly to affiliate, they link to a page within there site www.yourdomain.com/affilaite.htm
but when you click on the link the link redirects to the affiliate site. Is thi better than linking directly to the affilaite?
Hiding links in Java:part of example below
<a href='java script:pop("http://affilaitesite.com=id123")'
Is this cheating?
What are the positives and negatives of both these techniques?

The problem is that G reads damn scripts now....so for that engine, your kind off stuffed technically. Put them with a flash nav menu, that should stop the bots recognising your page as an affiliate monster. Again though, I believe that damn G bot is beginning to read flash files as well. How far out it is from perfecting it, unknown. Damn technology, becoming increasingly difficult to hide things like those affiliate links.

Question 1 is more difficult to answer. IMO it's going to depend entirely upon how the redirect is done, and varies from search engine to search engine. This is just a theory --read: I have no solid proof yet-- but if the redirect is done via a 301 Permanent Redirect one would think that Google might well pass the PR decently well. Even through the affiliate redirect. Yahoo! has issues with 301 redirects though, so goodness only knows if it would help with them.
There are some affiliate schemes which purport to pass PR/Link Pop. However I can't say that I've seen anything that is 100% effective in doing so.
Does this affect how you optimize a page that contains links to sites you're affiliated with? Some maybe, but not a lot. What will affect that end more will be your own on-page factors and links you have pointing to your site. The major effect is whether PR/Link Pop from your site is passed to the site you're affiliated with.
