    I am about to finish my first product. Dont know if its gonna be CB or not yet. I know that you will lose your account if you have affilate links in your landing page. But what if the links in your landing page are not affiliate since they are your own? Is that ok? Could I do landing page directly linking to sales page without getting banned?

    Of course it's OK. Millions of people are selling their own stuff using adwords, from cake to car parts. It's exactly what adwords is for...

    But can I directly link a adwords advertisement straight to a video sales page or I need a good landing page for buffer then throw my links in there?

    I don't think it's a problem either way.
    But my wife sells her own stuff and her adwords link is going directly to her .com homepage where people can order...

    Yes selling your own product shouldn't be a problem as long as its not on there prohibited items list, if you do plan to launch it on CB at a later date its a great idea to split test on adwords first.

    So adwords straight to video sales page with only a buy button is legal. No other pages except privacy policey, t&c, etc in the footer link. I thought this was against their TOS and you get banned? Or maybe just for affiliates?

    I doubt they would approve just a video sales page but you can only try.

    The thing they look for with affiliate links are called bridge pages. It's where it's a page that sits between adwords and an affiliate offer. They will get after you for that. They will usually approve a video sales page. The only thing though is that you do want to have at least some content on it. The reason for that is your QS. (Quality Score) The more targeted content the better. You want your ads, keywords, and page content to match up. That will give you the highest QS on a scale of 0-10. The better your score the less you pay and the more traffic you'll get. It's also a good idea to split test your ads so that you have a good idea of what is working for your affiliates later on. (I've run adwords campaigns of over 12 million in the last 7 years.) I'm actually working on an adwords product right now so if you have questions shoot.

    Read the terms of adwords.

    You can promote CB, but your account will be banned because most of those CB landing pages are 1) just 1 or 2 pages and 2) get rich quick schemes,

    So make a product that is not get rich, and make sure you add more than 5 pages on your site + contact details, terms of condition etc.

    But I wont have any affiliate links because its my own product. I guess I should make it an authority site then just use banners and shit for my product.
