I am an Illinois affiliate whose Amazon contract is due for imminent termination.
Even though I will no longer make money from the Amazon relationship, I want to retain the hundreds and hundreds of links to Amazon products at my website. Why? Because I run a special-interest portal, and linking to those products serves my visitors (even if it doesn't any more directly benefit me).
I have removed my associates tag from all of my site's product links, but I have kept the links. Does anybody see any problem with this? The Amazon e-mail says the affiliate relationship must now end, but it doesn't advise yanking all links.
