    I'm pretty sure Amazon are going to ban my account for this but I wanted to give it a try just to see. I've scraped and spun a ton of content and Ive layer over it the Amazon affiliate widget. I'm getting about 2k hits a day and a few sales. Anyone done anything like this before?

    I don't think there's anything against their ToS about this. The text will be crappier because its spun which will affect readers/conversions but I don't see why it would get you banned.

    I'm with wowhaxor, remember they have to identify that your site is crap out of all the many aff sites that are out there. So unless someone reports you I don't see how they would know.

    Personally, i will not bother with filling my site with spunned content when you can get it for almost free from freelancer sites.

    I can't be 100% sure what they do in their own spare time, but any payout is dependant on a conversion and the conversion is cash in the bank. Cash is the greatest proof of a true source of traffic so I would imagine they wouldn't get too uptight about the quality of English on a site. But stranger things have happened.

    I really don't know what are the Amazon's policies and terms for spun content. Are you selling actual products over there?

    They review your website after 1st sale, if it's ok. you should get a confirmation email that you've been accepted to the program.
