No adsense, no cross domain linking. Amazon feeds yes. I thought having Amazon feeds were appropriate since many sites were related to "buy shoes", but I realize that is frowned upon. It made sense to me that if my site is "shoe store", that I should have some form of shoe products for sale. I guess being an affiliate doesn't really count. I see the issues with my tactics after the fact. The sites were a lot more bun than beef. Poor planning, but the Amazon products and feeds were temporary until I could get my company up and running. Now I have to provide "more indication of good faith" or prove to Google my site improvements because I was involved in affiliate programs. Go figure. Amazon should have a claimer, enter this program at your own risk. I was penalized based on being one of those damn affiliate site spammers... at least I think that's largely whats happened.
