Hi Nazmul,


Any affiliate web page violates the Bridge Page policy. If you do this your site will be banned in AdWords and your account will be at risk.

We already had lots of discussion on this in the past. Check this thread in full for details.

Before asking any questions, I recommend you to search for what you need first.


Best regards,

I recall that there was in the past, an issue with promoting Amazon on Adwords.

Again, we need  in this case, the input of our Amazon specialist  @AdWiser

Now when did I ever become an Amazon specialist, @MosheTLV? Smiley Happy

As Razvan points out, if you try to promote a website whose sole purpose is to send people away to Amazon and complete a purchase there, then, indeed, you're violating the bridge page policy.

On the other hand, if you can (if Amazon allows you and if you manage to outscore the ads they might run themselves), then you can do it by sending traffic directly to Amazon, to a page that includes your affiliate link already.

Some time in the past, Amazon had a section on their website saying that their affiliates were not allowed to direct paid traffic to Amazon. Whether this is still the case or not, I do not know and it is off-topic for this AdWords-centered community.
