    Hello Friends,

    I have recently started Affiliate marketing. But I am not able to understand how to run Affiliate programs with Adwords as Google doesn't allow affiliate links. Also, I have tried with a separate landing page that too Google did not allow to run as Google does not allow to use doorway pages. Kindly suggest me how to do it.

    Your suggestions are highly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    First, if by "not allowing affiliate links" you mean that you cannot direct link your ad to the affiliate's page, that is a myth. There are no rules that says you can't do it. But the landing page has to follow the same rules as any other. So my suggestion is to read the policies and get familiar with them. I would then suggest to stick with "safe" affiliates. If a landing page does not follow or seem to follow the policies, don't promote it. If there's any chance that the page may not follow the policies in the future don't promote it. Otherwise, you could just end up with a suspended account.

    Second, follow those policies if you create your own site. The doorway policy (bridge page) is one that most affiliates break. You cannot have links from your sales page to the affiliate's sales page. A button that says "buy now" should take me to the type of page I expect, not another sales page.

    You can't use adwords to promote affiliate links.
    You can't use adwords to promote links that are forwarding to affiliate links.
    You can (and should) use adwords to promote links on your own website, which have affiliate links in it.

    90% of what I do comes from Affiliate offers on Adwords, who ever told you it's not possible either lied or has no idea what he's talking about.
    It's all about the landing page (yours or the affiliate offer's), does it comply to Googles's terms? That's it!

    I think it mainly depends on the content you are trying to promote vs. the affiliate links itself. I have promoted plenty of affiliate products on adwords before. I had problems with some, but mostly not.

    Do you get a lot of sales? I'm assuming the most challenging part is the content/keywords you use? I'm new to this

    Direct linking affiliate link in Adwords ? Possible only with very advanced cloaking
    Bing Ads ? Was easily possible, but no longer possible.
    But there are methods to do it still, in Bing Ads and I make a living running such ads for my customers

    Affiliates are totally disliked by adwords and they ban it like mad, only way if you really want is through cloaking.
