    Now I know this isn't recommended for SEO purposes and such, but I don't plan on ranking this site. Rather, I already have a ranking video site where I can add the link of the free amazon affiliate wordpress site on the header bar for people to click if they are interested in shopping (they are extremely related products to the video tube site genre).

    I haven't done the KW research for these products, but I'm assuming these products might be hard to rank for (im going to have to check for sure though)

    My question is, what are the advantages and disadvantages to having an Amazon affilaite on a free site? I think I may be able to drive enough traffic from my main tube site to the amazon affiliate if i place the links on my main site in the right place.

    Thoughts?

    I don't know this for certain so you should check, but I always thought you weren't allowed to use affiliate links on free Wordpress as it's for non-profit blogs? If you want to use Amazon Associates you should have a self hosted Wordpress blog.

    I would have to look into this. Can anyone confirm?
