If you have amazon product links on sites other than those approved (but not disclosed by amazon- secrett.. shsshh) expect to get your associates account deleted along with all your earnings Not paid as i did today.. even though they profited. Anyone think that amazon will have return their cut to the customer?? This is what they said in email: Hello, We currently accept only Facebook.com "Fan Pages," "Verified" Twitter.com pages and/or a YouTube "channel" in the Associates program. All other social network sites are not eligible to add Associate links, or for use to create an Associates Account. In reviewing your website, we noticed that the URL listed on your application is a social network website. However, your site is not an approved social network or established with enough unique content and followers yet. At this time, we are unable to approve your application and have closed the account under which you had been temporarily approved. Thank you for your interest in Amazon.com Associates. I had some product links on my youtube channel but also on Trinding, as do many. Thats the site they did not like being linked to my account. Rather than doing what any honest person would do and ask me to fix they instead delete my account. I wouldn't mind but email and checked my site lists with them prior. Oh and if anyone knows what "channel" is please let me know. Also they are talking outta their butts re Twitter. It is impossible to place a product link on twitter while observing their disclosure whereby you have to put a line of text which is far too long for twitter. It would fit in page descriptio but room for nothing else other than your page visitor repellant info you have just entered. doh. Anyway. check where you have put your links etc.
