    Hi there,

    I'm a little concerned about my Amazon Affiliate account.
    I'm using a very BH method, that results in around 1500-2000 clicks a day at a ~1% conversion rate, both on amazon.de and amazon.com.
    Obviously I am aware that is by no means a huge sum, but to me, the automated ~30? a day is a great help.

    What do you guys think - Is that enough to enforce an Amazon worker to manually check my links, or am I on the safe side with my rates?

    Thanks in advance

    *shameless bump*

    Anyone? I'd just like to know how much is too much in terms of Amazon.
    Any help would be much appreciated.

    Cover your tracks using banners and widgets, usually the Deal for the Day widget receive nice clicks.

    1%?

    i heard people getting banned for having that kind of ctr.

    although, some people are lucky enough to avoid getting manually reviewed by the staff.

    If you improve your conversion rates somewhat (geofiltering did wonders to mine) you should be ok for a while. If you're worried, rotate accounts every so often. You're less likely to get banned for an account that did some traffic, then tapered off and doesn't get any more hits. You'd have to go to the trouble of setting up a new site to get approved each time though.
