Hi, when I do a search on '<snip>' I saw an Amazon link. First I thought it's a typical CPC ads bought by Amazon. However, after I clicked on it, I noticed it's an Amazon associate link.

Don't mean to be a jerk. but is this allowed in Google AdWords?

Associate links are allowed in Google AdWords. However, the advertiser needs to specify that he/she is an affiliate of Amazon.com by inserting the word "affiliate" in either the title or the body of the ad.

AdWords Police generally take such ads down - Looks like this one somehow slipped through.

If you feel you have been mislead by this ad, you should email Google at adwords-support@google.com
