Thanks for your answer.
I read the link. It says it's all right & acceptable to AdWords if the affiliate marketer links to a website that's not an ecommerce site & is being used as a payment gateway.
But in this case, the website is linking to Amazon, which is an ecommerce website - the world's largest one in fact. Would this be a problem?
Could I have your opinion please?
Thanks in advance.
Affiliate Marketing Website
I have been approached by a person who wishes to promote his website affiliated to Amazon. The website is http://www.computer-world.co/.
However, once you proceed to checkout, you are taken to Amazon main site.
Can such a website be advertised on AdWords in the US?
Opinions would be welcome.
Re: Affiliate Marketing Website
For this scenario (site with original content that bridges to an ecommerce platform during the purchase process), we consider it a high quality bridge page, and there is an exception for this in our bridge page policy.
Here's what's allowed:
Websites that lead to e-commerce platforms on another domain (for example, a shop that leads to a third-party site that purely acts as a secure server to process payments and isn't a shop itself).
It sounds like this is the site scenario you're describing. Just to be sure, parse through this article (https://support.google.com/adwordspolicy/answer/190435?hl=en), which also includes a video about creating a high-quality bridge page.
Hope that helps!
