    Any of you guys promoting Amazon on Pinterest?I was doing it with no results.I later heard the the Pinterest owners would change your referral URL to there's.I read today that apparently they aren't doing this anymore.Can anybody confirm this?

    I was also thinking it would be so easy for them to drop a cookie and take a percentage of your sales.I am thinking about trying out some Amazon again on Pinterest if its on the up and up.

    I don't do Pinterest, but why don't you just cloak your links.

    Pinterest does not like cloaked links and they get marked as spam.

    Pinterest got rid of their Skimlinks a long while ago when they started gaining a bit of negative media coverage over the practice. I'm still not sure how wise it is to use Amazon affiliate links, however.

    When spammers first started targeting Pinterest they flooded the site with tons of Amazon links, so their spam algorithms are probably especially careful with regards to Amazon nowadays. But I've never experimented with Amazon, so I can't say anything with certainty aside from the fact that they no longer replace your affiliate ID.

    Well you might be right about them picking up on amazon and I'm sure it would get marked as spam.

    I've been funneling Pinterest traffic to my blogs. Someone bought a $275 watch 2 days ago.

    Just make a site with amazon products all over it (and CPM ads), no need to link directly to Amazon and cloak and all that. Cookie stuffing is for people who want to cut corners and risk amz account bans, bad idea in my opinion, but to each their own..

    i like this idea but i tryed to start a blog at blogger.com. I setup a nice blog added 5 products rly fast make a pin from my pinterest accounts and after 5 minutes my blog at blogger was deleted. I mean wtf? after 5 minutes they take my blog down without reason.

    My plan was to test amazon and pinterest. And blogger hit me with the ban hammer after 5 minutes? This sucks. Do i rly need to order a domain and setup a wordpress blog if i want to test this stuff?

    Yep, I'm building some simple wordpress sites for amazon/pinterest. I will be self hosting every image and just linking back to my site from pinterest. The main reason is that we don't know what pinteret are going to do in the future. Maybe they are letting you link direct to amazon now, but who knows, a couple of months from now, they could remove or replace all amazon referral ids or even remove the link all together, (maybe even ban accounts.) I want my links to be permanent.

    I tried amazon direct links and cloak link but it doesn't work that way and you will just get your account ban.

    Try create a blog then pin the image and link it to your blog. I earn from adsense and amazon from pinterest traffic.
