    it is, but you have to be careful about it. if your websites are breaking tos you will very likely be slapped by amazon. it sucks hearing stories about guys making bank for weeks and weeks, right when their first payment is about to drop boom, amazon slaps them and takes away all their earnings. it happens

    could be anything. i would read the terms of service carefully. basically i would just do some research on what is allowed and what isn't, how you are allowed to link, etc. i'm not well versed on amazon affiliate policies so i can't help much there

    They can ban you for the smallest mistake. I suggest you join other affiliate programs as well in order to not put all your eggs in one basket.

    Yes, Amazon Affiliate is still viable in 2017 and great for beginners to IM. Amazon is a trusted company which in turn helps to increase your conversion. It's all about finding the best Keywords to target.

    I have an affiliate site with mainly Amazon Associates as well as some other affiliates. Been running it for over a year and haven't had a problem but I do read a lot and many people end up getting their account banned.

    Yeah it's still viable just learn what is acceptable. They have strict rules on CTA and graphics. Keep within there rules and they are fine.
