    Hey Amazoners :)

    Note: it's 1st time to join Amazon affiliate planet ! so it could be silly question "i will ask it anyway"

    I was wondering does Amazon accepting mass traffic from YT !?

    let me simplify it , I have couples of powerful servers so i have ability to upload xx,xxx videos daily , so i was ask what about to upload that amount of videos and put my general referral link in description !!?

    Is that could drive Amazon to penalize my account for spammy stuffing? or it's acceptable as long as they are valid clicks ??


    Thanks
    Regards

    As I know, what's the diffrence? You will be sending the traffic to your website, how they will know the referrer? Use short links in video descriptions to be more secured.

    No they do not. I once tried to sell a product which would promote Amazon through spammy videos and it didn't take long for the customers to complain about it breaking the ToS of the Amazon affiliate program. A guy even got his affiliate account banned.
    However as everything else you can mask the traffic and you'll be good to go.

    they don't accept in there TOS but lot of ppl are spamming and spammy YT traffic is not that "spammy" like spammy email/forum traffic. mostly they won't complain.
    so take the small risk or find something else to do.:)

    You get the account banned. If Amazon sees thousands of random referers then you`re pretty f...ed.

    Cheers

    And your YT channel will be banned, according to their privacy policy you cannot redirect your viewers to another affiliate sites using links in the YT's video description, that's why 2 of my channel got suspended.

    I know for sure they only care about legal sales and valid CC's that aren't stolen. Just as long as you don't direct link your affiliate links in the YT descriptions you should be fine. Also try adding AliExpress affiliate products to your site..

    They can ban your account for not having their advertising disclaimer available for people to see.

    Don't put your aff. links directly in the desc. or anywhere on YT. Create a good looking review site, and add reviews for the products you're promoting on your site. Use a link shortener and put the shortened links in the desc. of your videos. Someone here was doing something like this, and he got his account banned, so I wouldn't suggest you to rely totally on this one aff. account. Do your own testing and you'll know for sure. P.S-Does anyone here know if we can open multiple Amazon affiliate accounts without any ban/problem?
