    Are there any issues with doing this? TinyURL seems to still allow you to shorten an affiliate link unlike some other services. Are there any other issues I should be aware of when doing this? Such as with CB or anything ehse?

    i think they do....for example bit ly shows sometimes some shit error messages...the best way to do it is to set up a url shortner on your domain :) ....there was a tutorial here on how to make this:

    I don't see anything in the CB terms that you cannot shorten affiliate links. Can you get banned for doing that? I'm not willing to risk my account.

    And what about Youtube, do they ban for using affiliate links?

    I've used tinyurl as my link shortener of preference if I decide not to buy a domain name and it has worked well for me.
