    Okay so my current plan for my niche site (which is currently hosted on GoDaddy...)

    > Get WordPress Hosting
    > Transfer Site
    > Map Domain (from my current hosting)
    > Complete Website

    Okay now that all sounds simple but once I complete the website... how do I put in my affiliate links without getting suspended? If I get hosting for my WordPress can I do whatever I want or is the "no-affiliate" rule still in effect? I don't want to have to cloak my affiliate links because I don't want Amazon to ban me because I need this to work. I've made 1 sale already so I know this works and I really need to step up my game and everyone is on WordPress but... I'm just a little confused is all. Not to mention with WordPress you can't add the product widgets right? Because they don't allow java script? I don't mind having an image/text referral I just don't want to get suspended again if I get hosting for my WordPress site.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    I have a hosting account with Godaddy that has a Wordpress website on it. It has CPA ads on it. Right on the sidebar and in the footer. I have yet to see a suspension.

    Okay thanks! I guess having hosting will save me some trouble.

    A good rule of thumb is not to mix an Amazon website with other CPA companies, though. I have done this and avoided the suspension that I have seen others get. But I cannot say they were doing the same niche, link building, or strategy as me.

    Hm, my niche site is/will be purely Amazon but I am thinking about joining ClickBank because Amazon loves to shave a lot. If I do join ClickBank I'll be sure to make it have it's own site. Thanks for the heads up!

    Do you have any advice on cloaking Amazon links? Do prettylinks still work?
