Amazon Affiliate Links

  1. I've noticed Amazon affiliate links are automatically being linked to certain keywords on this site, now, such as the more common term for a mobile phone in the US. "Cloaking" an Amazon affiliate link to make it less obvious what is being clicked is against the Amazon Affiliate terms of service.

    Sorry about the large screenshot, I tried to shrink it, but it is hard to do on the phone.

    Here is the section of their terms of service I'm referring to:

    "(v) You will not cloak, hide, spoof, or otherwise obscure the URL of your Site containing Special Links (including by use of Redirecting Links) or the user agent of the application in which Content is displayed or used such that we cannot reasonably determine the site or application from which a customer clicks through such Special Link to the Amazon Site.(w) You will not use a link shortening service in a manner that makes it unclear that you are linking to an Amazon Site."
