Anyone know for sure that it's *ok* to use a link tracking cgi script with amazon links ?

I want to track the clicks and minimise outbound links.

Thanks in advance as always.

Check out the operating agreement after you log in to your affiliate section. It is kind of vague as to what they allow. Maybe ask in the discussion area.

I use them with no problem and Amazon employees who have visited my sites have never objected. Hope this helps.

Come to think of it I don't use their Associates graphic on my sites either and they don't have a problem. I think they are more concerned about sales.

Thanks for the replies :)

I think I will just use them and see if click/sales go down in the reports. I can't see how it would be a problem but I like to check these things ;)

Thanks again
