    if you blank the referrer when sending to amazon, do you think with their new rule they would suspend your account if you still blank?

    i dont send PPC traffic to them, but hiding the referrer might make them think that it is PPC traffic.

    any thoughts?

    You can blank referrers for traffic protection, so I would think that if they question you and you explain yourself, you should still be able to slide with blanking.

    There is no logical connection to blank referrer and PPC traffic.... just because you do one doesnt mean you do the other.

    They don't have to wait until May 1st to ban you for blank referrers, they could do it tonight if they wanted and there isn't a damn thing anyone could do.

    Blank ref != PPC
