    Hello,guys,I saw some niche sites have thousands of products.And there was a product named A both on the niche sites and AMZ.The most important thing is there are thousands of As on the niche sites and AMZ. Here my questions are:
    1.How did they redirect these thousands of As to the exact same As on AMZ in simple way ,I mean is there a solution to make these bulk hand work in one click job?
    2.Does those thousands of redirects to AMZ will result penalty by AMZ?such as close accout?Thanks guys

    There isn't a shorter path to getting banned than doing redirects. I spoke with people who had their accounts closed in less than 24 hours after they did that.

    If your redirects are legit, meant to collect stats and so on, you won't be banned. But if you're trying to mask referrers or play some smart ass move, then you're at high risk.

    Don't do any redirect man :) Don't risk. For example Pretty Links are legit redirects but you will be banned if you use them.

    From their rules:

    You are solely responsible for the content, style, and placement of each link that you place on your site and for ensuring that Special Links (whether created by you or made available to you by us) include the appropriate formatting necessary for us to properly track referrals of customers from your site. For example, you must include your Associates ID or "tag" (appearing as XXXXX-20, or such other format as we may designate) as a parameter in the URL of each link you place on your site to the Amazon Site. In addition, you must not use a link shortening service in a manner that makes it unclear that you are linking to an Amazon Site.

    If the redirect is for statistics you can use it. Amazon doesn't want you masking links, that is all. If you make it clear you're an AMZN affiliate and simply redirect the link to count visitors and stats, then that is ok. Read that again, IN A MANNER THAT MAKES IT UNCLEAR THAT YOU ARE LINKING TO AMAZON. That is all, they don't want shady redirects, they don't ban all redirects.

    I've made tens of thousands of dollars on the Amazon affiliate program and my links are redirected on my site for statistical purposes, I'm not talking out of my ass. I just make it clear it's an amazon link and I have the ASIN on the link, so it's pretty clear it's an affiliate link.

    Thanks man,You hit the point.If I use anchor 'Find It On AMZ' to redirect to AMZ.Does this mean that I clarify this is a link to AMZ.So all visitors will know it's a link to AMZ.And AMZ will not penalty me anymore?Am I right? Thanks man,You are so kind.
