    Hi All,
    Just started on pinterest + Amazon campign, however since i cant post direct Amazon aff links on pins, i created a php re-direct from my site.

    Am i asking for trouble from Amazon? Basically, when someone clicks on my pins, they will land on Amazon..

    Pins>my site re-directs > Amazon

    You could use a DMR and just hope they don't check the page themselves. That way at least the referrer would show that the traffic is coming from your site. I haven't worked with Amazon so I'm not sure how strict they are and whether or not they'll do a little more checking up but it might be worth doing just to help anyway even if you do end up mixing in other traffic.

    As long as Amazon can see from where the traffic is coming (put Amazon link to post/page from where you`re redirecting the traffic) you`re ok!

    Cheers

    double meta refresh, it is a way of cleaning up where a link came from by sending it to two different types of redirects before going to the landing page

    hard to do right

    I would suggest you to check the HTTP_REFERER. If the visitor is coming from Pinterest, redirect. Otherwise, show a legitimate page.
