    I'm sure clickback wouldn't mind because it's not spam... It's a legitimate link from an ezine article, nothing blackhat about that... So why do people like to link to their own domain and then redirect that to the clickbank hop affiliate url? Why not link directly to the site ur promoting?

    I'm pretty sure ezine doesn't allow direct linking. You either have to link to your landing page or at the very least do a redirect from your domain.

    cause they don't allow it.

    and plus, you get better conversion rate because

    1) you can either have a squeeze page to get leads AND sell them the product
    2) you can pre sell them for better conversion rate.

    You are only allowed to do a domain level redirect to an affiliate offer. They don't allow an affiliate link or any other kind of redirects.

    I am too late to reply ... There are several other article websites who do approve affiliate links in your article.

    Another benefit from using your own lander as opposed to an affiliate code:
    Say you're sending to an offer and it's converting poorly, you can change the link to a new sponsor (depending on your ad of course) without wasting any more clicks. I don't advise redirecting any links without first consulting the ezine though as they might have a policy against that.

    I think I'm right in saying that you can set up a Squidoo lens containing affiliate links. It's much better to have your own domains though. That way you have a lot more control over your own links.

    I was just about to ask the same question (as OP's) so cheers for clearing that up, just getting into clickbank so a complete noob, just wondered what a landing site should look like? not to copy, just to see what's needed for one.

    Thanks

    If, when you say, 'ezine', you're referring to EzineArticles.com, then as it has been stated earlier, EZA doesn't allow for direct affiliate links to be used.

    HOWEVER

    On the other hand...

    If, when you say EZINE, you mean ANY ezine subscription service, then whether or not affiliate links are acceptable, then it would be based on what the T.O.S. is for that specific Ezine subscription calls for.
