    I've read through Amazon's terms and couldn't find anything that definitely answered my question.

    Is it again Amazon's terms to redirect my domain name to a specific product page on amazon using a link from amazon affiliate tools. On the reporting, my click through rate is 2100% because there are so many more page views than clicks. Though it looks odd, will amazon actually have a problem with it?

    Also, I've read about the different ways to redirect, both html, 303 redirect, and the temp redirect ... they all seem to have their pros and cons ... long term, which will likely preserve my rankings? I'm only redirecting my root and not my pages or subdomains

    Thanks

    You can not redirect. User needs to manually click a link on your site to go to amazon.

    Get ready for the Amazon ban...
