@creeking, wow, I see what you're saying. Could this only apply to Amazon.com? Wouldn't that be shameful.
I try not to rock the boat, but this comes to mind.
If you have been running a mobile version of your site for the past 12 months, what happens now that Amazon starts counting and "remembering" those clicks? IF you see a spike in revenue, the question then becomes how much money have you lost out on over that past year. You lose, but I would 99.99999% guarantee that you weren't sparsing the associates code from your posts. People clicking those links? Where did they end up anyways?
My point is, it might be interesting for some people who can do a A/B comparison. A before and after as it were. I guess I'm lucky in a sense because only recently I've gone full on mobile with my sites.
Can anyone confirm (if you had a mobile site over the past while) what happened when your affiliate code ended up on you mobile content and where those clicks would resolve to?
I find the clarity of the mobile policy to churn my stomach. Clear as day now, but before? Hardly clear. You couldn't find the word "mobile" anywhere on the associates policy. What does that really say about this?
Regardless, I'm very happy that Amazon has turned the lights on. This is HUGE. Can't change the past I suppose. What I can say is that I'm a fanboy once again regardless of how pathetic I find this situation.
