Niche Site Project’s “Surviving an Audit by Amazon Associates” + Commentary

Being compliant with Amazon’s Operating Agreement for their affiliate program (Amazon Associates) is really important to us here at Geniuslink (and we write about it a fair amount!).

Avoiding being the subject of an audit by the Amazon Associates compliance team is your best bet, but if you unfortunately get the fabled email letting you know your account is in jeopardy, then you’ve got your work cut out for you.  However, before you dive in, we’d encourage you to give the entertaining and highly educational post that Doug Cunnington, of Niche Site Project, wrote about his experience below (lightly edited).

As we’ve seen a number of these audits over the years I’ve interjected some commentary to Doug’s adventure in the post below (with this formatting).

Good luck and enjoy!
-Jesse (CEO / Co-Founder of Geniuslink)

Why You Should Own Your Short Links

You should own your short links. That’s a surprising point of view for us, but we’ll tell you why. Over the past few years, there has been a growing movement of people taking control of their web presence.

On the one hand, there has been an increasing distrust with giant corporations owning and selling the data we put online. On the other hand, thanks to the phenomenal growth of website building tools such as Squarespace, WordPress, and Wix, it has been easier than ever to build your website. As I go through my inbox, I also see more and more emails coming from sweet branded email addresses like myname@mysweetawesomedomain.com rather than myname@gmail.com.

We love that. We think you should own your web presence. And your short links.
