Do you have any experience with links of that kind? Which program is recommendable? I thought of amazon. Thanks for your advice! W.
I have no experience with what you are talking about but those kinds of businesses pop into mind as being logical. I think you can get commisions for life if someone signs up via one of your links, kinda like ebay.
Amazon also has cameras, clothes, and all kinds of other things a traveler might want. If you set up an affiliate account, you can link to any of their items. There are other affiliate programs for books, but Amazon is the only one that has all the other items, too, "under one roof."
Is the amazon affiliate program a pay-per-click thing like adsense?
The general experience is that "making a go of it" with only affiliate links takes a lot more work than using adsense because of the preselling necessary, but even if you don't want to spend the time writing articles and book reviews, affiliate links can be a useful add-on to a site using adsense especially if it's a content-rich site. The commission basis is also why I suggested looking at other travel-related items such as cameras; the more something costs, the higher your commission (with some limitations).
If you want, the amazon links can be strictly text links, so don't need to look like "ads" at all if you don't want them to.
