    Want to run a localised niche using a company name in the domain name eg. s0nywidget.

    Will Amazon accept my domain for an affliate account? I know they wont if it contains Amazon or name they own but it is not one of them..but it is a product name eg s0nyviaowidget

    Just need advice before buying the domain in question...

    I've had domains not allowed because they contain trademarked words and company names in them before. What I did is use a non-offending domain to register for affiliate, and then just add the trademarked domains after, not had a problem for 6 months now.

    Hope it helps :)

    Nope, I've received a few payments now from Amazon.

    what about using a domain with "bluewidgetsus" or "bluewidgetsuk" to get the domain I need?

    If I add a local specific id to the keywords will I still be able to rank for 2/3rds of the domain name ie "blue widgets" if my domain name was "blue widgets us" or is this the wrong way to go?
