    Hello, I am presently writing a guide with complete step by step method using snapshots and pics where needed. I was thinking to add a few affiliate links at some places readers would not notice. For example I was writing a guide on "how to customize your wordpress blog" and in the end of the book I make a section of "useful links" and add affiliate link of a wordpress themes site.

    Does Amazon allow this?
    Will readers report the book?
    Any one experienced this sort of thing?

    I know that people cross promote their own kindle ebooks and get traffic to their site too but never heard of it. Help from some one already in the kindle marketing having some experience would really be appreciated.

    Thanks.

    You could possibly hide the link by linking certain words?

    What good would hiding the link do if they don't know if it's a link?
    The chances and probabilities of them clicking the link are going to be extremely low and it is only going to happen randomly.

    At the end of Book just redirect your readers to your main blog where you've articles about your aff links, many Writers do this in Kindle Store.
