    Hello Affiliate Marketers! I have a news update, that some of you might very well be interested in..

    Pinterest is blocking Amazon Aff Links. You can still use them, but what I've learned through some research, is that when someone clicks on your affiliate link, in your pin -- before they're redirected, Pinterest will strip the afff id.

    My research shows that all other affiliate links are still allowed. This is just an update, to keep some of you from wasting time.

    You have to pin your own domain and then redirect visitors to amazon or other store

    For more details check this Pinterest fake profile and pins: http://anonym.to/?http://pinterest.com/nahaba1/

    This guy is repining popular pins from other boards and then change url of pin to his website http://anonym.to/?http://findanswerhere.com and based on category of pin he creates url like http://anonym.to/?http://findanswerhere.com/womensshoes, which redirect users to amazon with category women's shoes.

    He is using some kind of cookie stuffing (he loads amazon in iframe). Just check his code:

    HTML:
    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html>
    <head>
    <script>
      (function(i,s,o,g,r,a,m){i['GoogleAnalyticsObject']=r;i[r]=i[r]||function(){
    (i[r].q=i[r].q||[]).push(arguments)},i[r].l=1*new Date();a=s.createElement(o),
      m=s.getElementsByTagName(o)[0];a.async=1;a.src=g;m.parentNode.insertBefore(a,m)
    })(window,document,'script','//www.google-analytics.com/analytics.js','ga');
               ga('create', 'UA-39949396-1', 'findanswerhere.com');
    ga('send', 'pageview');
    </script>
    <script type="text/JavaScript">
    <!--
    redirectTime = "200";
    redirectURL = "http://www.amazon.com/gp/most-wished-for/apparel/2368343011/?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&linkCode=ur2&tag=dailyfreer-20";
    function tr() {
        setTimeout("location.href = redirectURL;",redirectTime);
    }
        //   -->
        </script>
    <body onLoad="JavaScript:tr()">
    <iframe width="100%" height="7000px" frameborder="0" scrolling="no" src="http://www.amazon.com/gp/most-wished-for/apparel/2368343011/?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&linkCode=ur2&tag=dailyfreer-20">
    I love pinterest.com!
    </iframe>
       </body>
    </html>

    Use something like prettylink on your own domain to your amazon aff links
