    Your blog needs to be mostly personal and not a storefront for Amazon.

    If every post has an affiliate link, you would probably be suspended.

    If maybe 1 in 10 posts had only 1 Amazon affiliate link, that would probably be okay. As said, it’s on a per-blog basis.

    OK.. I just wanna ask you one more thing:

    a) How would you recognize if we cloak the affiliate links and keep in wordpress blog?

    b) Per Account, how many wordpress.com blogs we can create? or shud we need to create each account per blog?

    Again saying, I have no intention to spam, BUT just wanna clear before I create wordpress blog..

    1. robots will detect cloaked links just as Google’s spiders do.
    2. there is no limit

    It’s my take that you will not be happy here. I suggest that you hire a web host and set up your own self hosted WordPress.org install.

    Get real – they are never going to tell you how they find you and the filters and bots that crawl your site looking for TOS violations – however – after helping in the forum for 3 years or so – they do find the cloaked links and suspend the sites – regular parade of whiners about suspended blogs even with cloaked links

    Bottom line – go somewhere else – you will not be happy here and you keep asking about how to violate the TOS – your blogs will be suspended sooner or later

    You can create as many WordPress.Com blogs as you want under one username.

    Let me save you some time.

    WHAT YOU ARE TRYING TO DO IS GOING TO GET YOU SUSPENDED HERE.

    I know all kinds of “gurus” say create a web of interlocking sites on Wp.com and Tumblr.com etc etc and use them to push traffic to your affiliate links. This will get you suspended here.

    So, don’t start. Don’t even try.

    @macmanx already gave you a very clear, unambiguous answer here:

    Advertising outside of WordAds (including affiliate links, cloaked or otherwise) at WordPress.com is not allowed. For full details, please see:
    http://support.wordpress.com/advertising/
    http://wordpress.com/types-of-blogs/

    Read his full answer again. You can’t.

    As far as “last query”, you’ve already asked and received more answers in this thread about trying to use a WordPress.com site for Affiliate marketing than any other user I’ve met in the 5+ years I’ve been here.

    Every answer you’ve received has said you can’t, but you keep trying to find a way around it.

    Tenacious you may be, but that won’t change the answer.

    As already stated, any advertising or affiliate links, outside of our WordAds program or sparse usage of Amazon affiliate links, will result in the immediate suspension of your blog and WordPress.com account.
