    do a .htaccess redirect on your server to it, or any sort of redirect really. that will shorten it up.

    You've got options. TinyURL would work, but it looks kinda non pro. You can also setup a php file on your server (amazon.php maybe) and in it put the following:
    PHP:
    <?php
    header
    ('Location: http://blahblah.amazonlink');
    ?> 
    Then, link your visitors to http://yourdomain.com/amazon.php

    Or, name amazon.php index.php but otherwise leave it the same. Make a directory on your site named amazon and send your users to http://yourdomain.com/amazon

    Is there a way to link to the amazon main page as your link? All I can find is how to link to individual products.

    Will amazon allow you to use tinyurl without banning you?

    I have been wrestling with their TOS for a day or two now, trying to make sure I create a site that's on the up-and-up. I came across this statement which implies the URL shortening services are a violation of their TOS. I'm new to Amazon marketing so I wondered if I'm just reading it incorrectly:

    For example, you must include your Associates ID or "tag" (appearing as XXXXX-20, or such other format as we may designate) as a parameter in the URL of each link you place on your site to the Amazon Site. In addition, you must not use a link shortening service in a manner that makes it unclear that you are linking to an Amazon Site.

    If you're using wordpress just download a plugin called pretty link lite.

    Log into your affiliate account at Amazon.
    Hit the Amazon logo in the upper left corner of the page (any page).
    When the main page loads hit 'Link to this page' on the affiliates tool that runs across thee top of the page. If the tool bar's not there, hit the gray button in the upper left corner to open it.
