    Do both services impact SEO negatively?

    If not, which is the best based on your experience?

    I'm more than happy with SkimLinks. Hasn't had any impact on SEO either.

    Same here with Viglink.

    What, specifically, do you mean by "impact SEO negatively"?

    Any penalizations for affiliate links on keywords, etc..

    Ah, so specifically the Skimwords part of the program - where the text of your page is pre-scanned before rendering and links are contextually inserted into your content for matching merchants and products (on-the-fly)?

    Sorry, but I don't use that part of the program as it had adverse effects on my members experience at my main site - I only use the outgoing link checker that washes merchant site links through the Viglink list and affiliates them on the way out.

    Someone else will have to chip-in with how Skimwords has worked for their site/s SEO. (y)

    Yep and overall I mean. I'd prefer better Google points than a few extra dollars a month.

    I've been using viglinks for years, happy with the results and UI.

    I only have amazon affiliate links. I was with Viglinks for a short period. With Viglinks I lost 95% of my amazon income.

    With skimlinks you can turn amazon off and keep it for other affiliate programs...

    Just started with Viglinks and it also has the ability to not rewrite previously affiliated links.

    I have both Skimlinks and Skimwords enabled on my site. No impact to SEO

    Skimlinks does not affect SEO. If your site has affiliate links then its completely fine. Its easy, there are no special links to use. Viglink is also good, its more Quicker and more informative then Skimlinks.
