    When I setup the destination url, can I put the affiliate url or do I need to make a landing page?

    sure you can do that but you will have to put whatever domain the affiliate url goes to in the display url

    so does it have to be the whole affiliate link or could it be amazon.com?

    and what is someone else is pointing their ad to the same destination with only a diff affiliate id?

    if the affiliate link goes to ringtones.com you need to put ringtones.com in the display url. If you want to be blackhat tho you may be able to change destination by keyword which opens up alot of possibilities

    So if I am getting this thru my thick skull.

    display url hxxp://amazondotcom
    destination url hxxp://amazondotcom/affiliateid

    Lost on the part about change the destination with keywords.

    Thanks for being patient. I want to get this right.

    Also if a comp ad has official site with a TM in it is that the merchants ad or can anyone do this?

    Whatever the URL of your destination is has to match the domain of your display URL. Since you and another person will have the same destination domain, you will have the same display domain. Only one domain will be allowed to run so whoever has the winning bid will get their ad to show up.

    Amazon does not allow direct linking.

    You should asure that your affiliatecompany allows the direct adwords-traffic. Some dont allow. Then you have to build a landingpage.

    If amazon is allowing you should use:

    display url Amazondotcom
    destination url hxxp://amazondotcom/affiliateid

    What happens when someone else is pointing there? Only one ad per domain is showed. So your ad will only show when youre better then your competitor. Or you have to build a landingpage.

    Greetings!
