    Hi guys,

    I am promoting amazon products via twitter using hashtags, I use software to send a tweet every hour, I am getting clicks on my amazon links but when I search for my tweet in the hashtags I am unable to see them.

    I am not using url shortners or anything like that, just straight amazon affiliate links, I don't why amazon says we can promote products via twitter and then twitter blocks them lol.

    Going to try another method today but does anyone have any advice about getting around this issue?

    Thanks.

    Those tweets are ghosted, i guess they don't show up under the "Latest" tab either when you search for them.

    It has nothing to do with Amazon.

    If it's a fairly new account, the tweets with urls will be ghosted from Twitter search almost without fail (your followers will still see your tweets or anyone who arrives on your profile directly for whatever reason.)

    If you don't have followers, who can interact with your content either by clicking your link, retweet/like it, so others may come across it too, then those clicks must come from Twitter crawlers. When a link is posted first, the crawlers will visit it and revisit it later. Those initial bot clicks can be up to 100 per url, mostly it's 50-70.

    Thanks,

    It is a fairly new account and I hit it with some automated tweets yesterday, following around 35 people a day to play safe but I think I hit too many hashtags, too much promotion and posted at the same times, going to delete anything from my profile that looks sketchy and not log in for a few weeks as others have suggested.

    When I log out and do the from:mad:username search I get nothing so I'm being ghosted, I'll give it some time to age and then log back in and resume posting just normal updates and then try again.

    Thanks for the help.

    you need to first setup a account in the niche needed.

    you then need a bot to get followers in that niche.

    i would setup 25 account, this way more of a chance to get high traffic .

    massplanner or followliker bot to use.

    you then send a tweet know and then 3 at max in a day on one account to your
    followers.

    when contacting/tweeting the followers, you must use a short url for them to go to your sales page.

    on your sales page you need to block all tweeter bots/try to.

    if you really want to go a safe way re direct the user to a free web page, and then redirect them to the sales page of yours

    Hi,

    Investigated further into this guys, there is another account who is doing the same as me, posting raw amazon affiliate links and NOT getting ghosted, he posts up no hashtags and only has 146 followers, he also looks like he is posting at different times during the day so this could be my issue.

    Time to go back to the drawing board.

    you can use this to stop twiiter going to your page directly

    RewriteEngine On
    RewriteCond %{HTTP_REFERER} example\.com [NC]
    RewriteRule .* - [F]

    but you must redirect user from a different website to get to your seles pale.

    i dont no if twitter icheeks the links if so get rid of them with above code.

    if twitter bots have single ip and you no them you can use the following code

    Block a range of IP addresses
    To block an IP range, such as 123.123.123.1 - 123.123.123.255, you can leave off the last octet:

    deny from 123.123.123
    You can also use CIDR (Classless Inter-Domain Routing) notation for blocking IPs:

    To block the range 123.123.123.1 - 123.123.123.255, use 123.123.123.0/24

    To block the range 123.123.64.1 - 123.123.127.255, use 123.123.123.0/18

    deny from 123.123.123.0/24

    Is that a new account though? It doesn't necessarily need to be a new account if it has low amount of followers. I mean if he's not doing the follow/unfollow method and relies on Twitter search, not too many people will follow an account who posts affiliate links, only bots.

    There are different rules for ghosting, e.g. if you post the same or nearly the same content (tweet or links) all over again, you get ghosted. If it's not a serious violation, you will get ghosted for 24 hrs only, but if you keep violating the ghosting rules, the account can get ghosted for good.
    But i still feel like that you're getting penalized because of the link and being a new account.

    If you want to test if it's the link or something else, then wait a day (just to be sure that the ghosting is over in case if your account is ghosted and not only certain tweets), don't post anything in that time, then post a tweet with no links. It should show up in the search.
    Or you can go ahead and post a tweet without links now and see if it shows up under the "Latest" tab or nah.

    Not sure, he seems to have lots of tweets so couldn't go too far back, he is not getting filtered and posting raw amazon links without any issue, no ghosting or need for redirects.

    I even got some likes and retweets from my actual followers yesterday of my affiliate links, perhaps I'll use this strategy and forget about the hashtags, I'm just going to give it a week and then recheck things, I've deleted anything suspect from my account now, I have other revenue sources so its not an issue to wait.

    On the profile page (twitter.com/username) you can check the account age, it should be on the left under the bio and url, "Joined ...". I think it's visible for every account by default.

    Tested the same idea but this time just text and regular hashtags without affiliate links, this time we will narrow it down to either the software or a hashtag issue so we can be a step closer.
