    Hello BHW

    This is my first money making guide i've written for BHW so bare with me if there's a couple of mistakes here and there:)

    Now before i begin i must be honest as to why am posting this method. Recently i actually got caught by amazon for doing this exact method and they banned my account and ceased my earnings but i think if someone on here is smart to enough blank the referrer as it's known and to stop amazon from seeing where the sales are being generated from then i think this method will still work and you can earn good money from it. At this moment in time i can't be bothered to open a new account with amazon again so my days are over with this method but that doesn't stop you guys from trying. Anyway on to the method.

    First you will need an amazon associates account so if you haven't signed up to there affiliate program please do so and make sure you have a website to hand that you can show them to say where you are planning to advertise there products.

    Second step is to register to this site: www.mumsnet.com

    This website is a very popular parenting site so signup using a fake gmail address and get your account activated. Once that's done the first thing you want to do is click 'Topics' on the mumsnet homepage and then scroll down on the next page and click 'Housekeeping' Now this is where the fun starts.

    There are literally tons of questions being asked everyday by mothers for example:
    "How to remove stains from kids clothes?"
    "How to clean your cooker"
    "Vacuum cleaner recommendations"
    "How to clean mould from bathroom walls"

    The questions are literally endless, now your job is go on to amazon and find products that you can recommend to these people related to there question. So if we look at the first question i posted you could write something like this

    "my little one are always coming home from school with stains on there clothes and i found this cleaner to be the best"

    Now the word cleaner would be an affiliate text link which redirects them back to an amazon product.

    Your answers can be much better then this you just need to use your imagination a little.

    Now there is a specific way of writing text links and that information can be found just underneath the reply box when you are about to reply to a question. It's very simple honestly.

    Everyday these similar sorts of questions are being asked and all you have to do is answer there questions with your affiliate link embedded in a text link and you will make sales. The awesome thing is they may not even go on to buy the product your recommend, they may buy something completely different but you get paid either way!

    Now if you really want to be cheeky like me when i was doing this method, you can ask your own questions and then answer them by simply changing your nickname on your account. This can be done through the account settings once you have signed up LOL. This helps keep your posts at the top of the list of forum posts in the housekeeping section ensuring you get maximum clicks. Also try and post any time after say 7PM in the evening as most people are back from work by this time so you will get more clicks.

    Now as my associates account got banned i can't show you any earnings but i was clearing at least $100 to $150 a month pretty easily, one of my best months i managed to pull in $200 but i was doing this method aggressively everyday.

    Be careful though the admins do delete your account so pick your posting times wisely when you know you are going to get the most clicks and even if they do delete your account the damage is already done.

    As i said before my associates account got deleted so do this method only if you can block amazon from finding out where your traffic is coming from otherwise leave it as it's not worth the risk and you will end of in the same boat as me:(:(

    I hope you enjoyed reading the method and if you have any questions, post them up here and i'll be happy to answer.

    if you had website or even blogger and write short guides with recommending amazon products your amazon acc would be fine and you would have something long term
    scaling it up by having multiple accounts + sites

    Nice Idea!
    i ve got the same, just for any kind of Forum but never tried.

    Why should Amazon bann your account? They are still making profit with you. Only the admins of the particulary Forum have got reasony to be angry at you

    Sadly i never got paid all the earnings they owed me once they ban you account that's it all your earnings are ceased. I was trying to build this up long term by opening legitimate sites but i was still doing this method which obviously violates there TOS so that was the end for me.

    They banned my account because i was violating there TOS by adverting there products on forums that i don't own. Or as they put i violated there operating agreement point number 8!

    Not really i was spending the best part of around 10 minutes a day. If your smart you can save pre made questions and answers and just cycle through them everyday once you have enough of them. The longest part of the method was creating email accounts. But there are loads to choose from like gmail, yandex, mail.com, yahoo, hotmail. It's not that simple for me to create another account as i would have to register with a new bank account, street address and if they ever found out again in future that would result in a straight ban.

    lmao yep. If he had a decent site and would actually put in a little more effort this method can easily earn thousands.

    Nice Method!
    I made a similar method of $ 70 in three days.
    Have you been blocked? When it's time to pay? How quickly you were exposed? I'm waiting for reaction from the Amazon. Sorry for my bad English

    My idea for July. If before that time I will not get a ban fRom Amazon...
    1. Create a blog with Amazon goods.
    2. Spam the link to my blog created through the Bitly. But show it as a Google link (you can do it with the help of sniffer and gmail account).
    3. The automatic redirection of this "Google-bitly" link to the Amazon site. This way the client gets directly to the Amazon site. But Amazon will think that he came from my blog.
    See more https://www.blackhatworld.com/posts/10134761/
    4. The affiliate link must be masked (for example, using a godaddy).
    5. As often as possible to change the link of the Bitly.
    I hope you understand the main idea. The only question is whether the Amazon will ask where the traffic to my site comes from. Although I think you can hang a counter and wind up the visitors for the eyes ...

    Yes my amazon associates account has already been banned. I was getting paid at the end of every month by wire transfer. I was doing this method for almost a year before they caught on but like i said it was because i wasn't masking where i was getting my traffic from, if i was doing that i might of had a better chance of surviving.

    checked stats of the site and they have similar numbers of traffic from US and UK according to semrush so you lost probably tons of potential sales
    as suggested try mask the link or better have own site where you will have also links for us and uk traffic

    Thank you for your advice regarding money making guide. I am really grateful for it and find it very insightful. I am going to give it some serious consideration and see how I can effectively introduce it into my amazon work. I value your opinion and ask you to always share such ideas. Thank you again.

    To bypass moderation i would say make posts in the evening when a lot of users are active on the forum around 8PM on wards. Also try and limit the amount of posts you make so try and keep it to about 5 posts or less. Make sure you change your nickname every time you post so the mods don't think it's the same person posting all the time. Give good answers to questions nothing too short that looks like spam.

    So, how one can make it whitehat or it is generally forbidden to market on forums like that?
