    Whats your guys opinion on cloaking amazon affiliate links? I have product review sites and I cant determine which it better. Have a simple link show up in the lower left corner of the users browser that says "/buy-product" or have the huge amazon link show up so the users know they are going to a trusted site?

    Whatd you think is best?

    I personally just leave it as-is. Amazon is trusted like you said and those who actually pay attention to the status bar will feel at ease clicking on the link since it goes to the safe, awesome amazon.com website
