    I know you're staring at my 'newbie'...

    Yes, I'm a newbie on BHW, but not in making money online. I have worked a lot, and failed almost the same amount.

    Almost...

    I don't need 1000 yes's. One big HELL YES next to 999 no's is good enough for me.

    I got it with Amazon.

    But I didn't jump right in learning how to do it right. I'd rather learn how to fack it up first.

    * Amazon don't care where your traffic comes from as long as they sell. Therefore fellow black hats can be confident to execute whatever you plan. However, don't be so aggressive because once their alarm raised, you'd better say goodbye.
    ** There were some cases in which competitors foul played each other to make their enemies get banned.

    That's all I have searched an found. Hope this helps reduce your concern about Amazon business. Feel free to add what I'm missing, or if I'm wrong please correct me.

    Cheers!

    I guess I don't understand your post, you say that these will get you banned, but then say amazon doesn't care where traffic comes from?

    They really don't care, but they do care HOW you get that traffic. It sounds like a paradox but understandable. For instance, you post your link on a forum, so the traffic will be from that forum which doesn't matter. However if they find out that you mine that traffic by spamming, not a quality post, you're out of the game.

    Sounds like a win win for amazon, but how would they know unless you were literally spamming your affiliate link in forums, which is really stupid.
