Are there a lot of companies (with affiliate programs) that don't care where the traffic is coming from? Like if it was direct traffic from facebook/yahoo answers? Rather than through a website? I'm just trying to get a grasp on everything.. so I know I could make reviews on a website and then link to that, but it just bugs me thinking that it would be easier to convert into a sale if there wasn't a middle man. From what I understand, it doesn't look like commission junction likes that. Is that what everyone does? Links to reviews? I guess it's the safest way. I just am worried about getting banned through affiliate programs.
