    I built a new site (I can't post urls so just go to best unlocked smartphones dot com)

    I got an email from Amazon that said I can't partake in their program anymore because I used a picture of their logo. Whatever I think I'm going to switch to ebay's partner program and just use that.

    I'm not getting any traffic even though I have an exact match domain, at one point I saw that I was on page 6 but now I can't find myself anywhere.

    Any tips or suggestions of what I should do to keep this site? I put a good amount of time into it and feel it could be something I just need some sense of direction...

    I don't think eBay lets anyone other than big publishers into their affiliate program.

    If you do get in though lmk
    That'd be really interesting

    ""The use of the Amazon Logo is a violation and would result in denial of the application, if present during the time of review. We do not allow the use of Amazon Logos or trademarks for our Associates so I’d suggest removing the trademarks to ensure you’re not denied for that reason"


    Yes,I see that lot of amazon affiliates use the 'amazon buy it now button' and get perhaps get banned. I hope they learn something from this thread. Amazon does not allow the use of their logo to affiliates. Make your own button, without an Amazon logo in !

    Interesting
    Seems like they changed. I remember 3 years ago they weren't accepting. They must really be competing with amazon

    Isn't that also a violation of their tos too
    They have a set of buttons just for affiliates

    I might be wrong though...

    Yes this has changed. I remember the same thing a few years back, now they just auto accept.

    As far as the violations go I guess I could remove the image and try to reapply and hope that they will accept me but I was thinking worse comes to worse I switch to ebay. Either way I still need to get traffic which is something I don't have much knowledge of. Seems like the thing everyone is lacking and/or looking for.

    Seo and facebook are your friends here


    About ebay, do they let you use the image on the ebay listing?

    I don't know, if anything I'd use their logo in the pages on where each phone is. The ones linking to the buy page.

    you can use a plugin like easybaypro for adding live actions to your posts. As for using a ebay logo they have some you can download in their EPN which you can generate a link using their link generator
