    Can I put my amazon affiliate link shortened by goo.gl into forum/blog commenting directly? or have to place the amazon affiliate links on my site, then put my site into the forum/blog commenting. Thanks in advance.

    Don't think forum and blog commenting with Amazon affiliate links is allowed. See https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/gp/associates/agreement/, section 3. Links on Your Site:

    Special Links mean your affiliate links. Notice the "your site" part. Furthermore, take a look at https://affiliate-program.amazon.com/gp/associates/help/operating/participation/, section 9:

    Amazon doesn't want you to put affiliate links on sites you don't own or operate.

    Yeah mann. I second that. Don't put your affiliate links on forums or those sites which you do not own. Having your links on your social media accounts like Facebook and twitter should be fine.

    Yeah, the condition is "own or operate":

    The OP doesn't probably own or operate the blogs and forums he was planning to post these affiliate links on. So how about Facebook? Well, he doesn't own Facebook, but certainly operates a part of it - his Facebook pages, for example.
