It heavily depends on how many affiliate links you place and what other content you have.

If your website is thin on original content and has lots of outbound affiliate links then it’s highly probable Google and other search engines will frown upon that and rank your website in low positions as a result.

Your website should naturally contain a mixture of regular editorial links and affiliate links.

To be safe it can be good practice to use the rel attribute and give your outbound affiliate links either the ‘nofollow’ or ‘sponsored’ tag.

Remember to always focus on the user experience ultimately first. The aim is to provide useful content for people that helps their buying decisions.

There’s many different factors search engines use when deciding where to rank your website, so remember they play a huge part too, but a good start is to have healthy practices when it comes to your affiliate links.
