    Hi guys,

    i have been thinking of creating some ads on adwords, with an affiliate link going directly to either a clickbank product or an Amazon product. Am i allowed to do this?

    Any help is greatly appreciated. Also would there be any problem with using the name of the product in the ad?

    Thanks!
    -Michael

    Micheal,

    I have read on some forums that it is not ok to send people directly to a third party affiliate site but I cannot find anything specifically mentioning that in Google's policies. I believe it is ok to send people to your own website that has affiliate links on it as long as there is some quality content there as well.

    Here are google's policies pertaining to affiliate advertising,

    Hope that points you in the right direction,
