Hello yahavhadad,

 

Welcome to the community Smiley Happy

 

First thing for an affiliate is to get an understanding of what is Google's URL policy because if this is not clear, then there are troubles in future.

 

Additionally, there are other aspects too involved in this process. I would straight away refer you to read this article for more details.

 

Hope that helps!

Hi Yahavhadad,

Google Says:

Google policy does not permit advertisements for data entry affiliate programs. This includes ads which direct users to sites that promote the creation or data entry of other ads directing users to the same site. There are no exceptions to this policy, which is intended to protect both advertisers and AdWords users.

Thanks

Affiliate advertising is an ongoing controversial topic since long. WIthout commenting much, I would encourage you to fill this form and Google will get back to you with details.

The website you provided required me to provide personal information prior to unlocking the game for freeSmiley Embarassed

 

According to Google AdWords Help Center:

 

Google AdWords doesn't allow websites whose primary purpose is to collect personal information. This includes but is not limited to websites offering free gifts or other incentives in exchange for personal information. We refer to this practice as "information harvesting."

 

 

Examples

Website Allowed?
 
  • Details Collecting personally identifiable information  Allowed with limitations - Google allows sites that collect personally identifiable information from users as long as this is not the primary purpose of the site.
  • Collecting sensitive personal information  Allowed with limitations -Google allows sites that collect sensitive personal information (such as bank details and credit card numbers) as long as all pages collecting the sensitive information use a secure processing server (https://). Collecting personally identifiable information in exchange for a free gift  
  • Not allowed -Google doesn't allow the promotion of sites that collect personally identifiable information in exchange for a free gift (such as free eBooks, free videos, etc.) where collecting this information is the primary purpose of the site. Offering incentives to collect personally identifiable information

You can't take affiliate links and advertise them! You can advertise your website which sells these things and/or the landing page on your website for each thing. Affiliate-selling is to earn revenue, in supporting something worthwhile you are doing, like writing a blog you think is valuable.
