hi all ,
Ive been reading a certain ebook about adwords and affiliate marketing and was wondering if you could explain something to me as simple as possible.
this ebook says to write ads in google adwords ,take your affiliate id and merchants http address from the html in the - get links tab out of programs on CJ an put the code in destination address on google adwords.meaning you dont need your own website.. is this allowed ,does anyone do this still, the ebook is from 2003. Im fairly new to affiliate marketing so go easy on me....

With Adwords, as long as your ad display URL matches the URL of the final destination that a user will arrive at when they click your ad, Google doesn't care. You can have as many redirects as you want (with your affiliate link tucked in).

However, I'd urge you to experiment with building your own landing pages. A lot of affiliates I know get a much higher conversion rate by using a well designed landing page. It's a bit more work and requires testing and optimization, but if more money means anything to you, it's worth the effort.

What you describe is called being a PPC affiliate. Some merchants allow direct to merchant PPC and some don't. Those who don't will likely terminate you if you do it and they will reverse previously earned but unpaid commissions.

Unfortunately, Google rarely enforces the rule that Greenboy describes.
