How do you plan to "earn from your videos" using Amazon Associates? You cannot put your affiliate link either in your channel description, video description, or in the video itself; that's against YouTube policy on Spam, Scams, and Deceptive Commercial Content.

YouTube will also see an affiliate link placed in a video description as an attempt to pull viewers from YouTube to another web site for commercial purposes which is also against the rules.

So youse think then to be safe I should go through my videos and then and remove all the amazon links? Also, does this rule apply to any and all affiliate links? or just certain ones? :p
