    As per their rule the FTC disclose must place near the links or should show as paid links.
    BTW how your sales?
    I added that at top of the page mentioned as paid links.

    Haven't made any sales from website yet only from youtube channel. My site is only partially indexed by Google and no rankings so far. Everything in Google moving so slow.

    That link level disclosure will harm your conversions and Amazon will get free traffic by customers skipping your site by going straight to amazon.I hate it when the government tries to dictate business.

    lol. Amazon doesn't care about violating FTC guidelines. The whole site is filled with counterfeit goods and they don't give a shit. The whole reason for this crackdown is to chase away affiliate payouts.

    How you make sales with YouTube?
    Yes I even hate it, but if Amazon find your site without disclosure may ban you.
    Nope. It's FTC guidelines if you don't make it comply amazon may ban you.
