    Hi all,

    I just started out with commission junction and got some links from their merchants. I wish to understand in gerneral, for the big affilate guys like Amazon, CJ, what form of marketing is allowed.

    1) Is email marketing allowed? Spamming emails with nice sales pitches. Since they have got a 30 days cookie, i have a 30 day chance for potential income?

    2) sneaking links in forums - Bla bla bla then sneak the link in.

    3) ebooks - create a pretty neat info pdf then sneak those links in.

    4) Article submission - uniquw neat article, then sneak affilate links.

    Also, I am using a low tech link cloaking called pretty link plugin to make the link nicer on mouse over, like mycoolsite_recommendations as opposed to amazonguitar as the link. Are there any important things i need to know about link cloaking and is this plugin gd enough?

    Please help as I am trying very hard to get the education.

    I thank you in advance.

    As far as I am aware the answer to questions 1, 2, 3 and 4 are yes they are allowed. However, hiding your affiliate links is not allowed and will get you banned. You can use pretty links to a landing page but you cannot mask your affiliate link.
