Do amazon links leave a footprint if they have different tracking ids?

    Assuming you use a different tracking Id, can google detect a footprint? I have two sites which both use amazon, are on different hosts, and has privacy protection. Is it safe to link from one to the other? Thanks!

    Linking from one to the other will be the footprint, not the affiliate links :p

    Though, to answer your question as it was asked: no, that won't leave a determinable footprint.

    the amazon tracking id won't leave any footprint, as for the link, it might leave one only if you use it in a blogroll or in the footer and it is the only outbound link going out of your website (besides amazon)
