Amazon Affiliates for a Book Reviewer

    I review books on my blog (http://jessysbookclub.wordpress.com/) I know that when I review a book my followers tend to buy the book so I'd like to join the Amazon Affiliates program. I read from staff that 'if you have a real blog with real content and real readers, we don't mind the occasional affiliate link to a reputable store (Amazon being the textbook example). "real blog" is the key. Staff are willing to cut you some slack you have a real blog.' Does this mean I can add the amazon affiliates programme on my blog? Please help :) Jessy xx

    The blog I need help with is jessysbookclub.wordpress.com.

  2. Does this mean I can add the amazon affiliates programme on my blog?

    No it does not. See here first:

    There are exceptions to this policy. Amazon.com and other select affiliate links are permitted so long as they are not the primary content of the blog in question. Other exceptions are made on a case-by-case basis. http://en.support.wordpress.com/affiliate-links/

    Then see here for types of blogs that are not allowed:

    Affiliate marketing blogs: Blogs with the primary purpose of driving traffic to affiliate programs and get-rich-quick schemes (“Make six figures from home!!”, “20 easy steps to top profits!!”, etc). This includes multi-level marketing (MLM) blogs and pyramid schemes. To be clear, people writing their own original book, movie or game reviews and linking them to Amazon, or people linking to their own products on Etsy do NOT fall into this category. Here is a thread in the support forums that talks more about which affiliate links are OK or not OK. http://en.wordpress.com/types-of-blogs/
