Amazon May Have Just Killed Free Kindle Ebook Promotions

Posted at 1:03PM Monday 25 Feb 2013

When Amazon announced new restrictions yesterday on how their affiliate partners could promote ebooks, they said the new rules would only affect a fraction of a percent of affiliates.

Sadly, that is not true. The new rules are actually going to affect all Amazon affiliates, and complying with the new rules is going to require the affiliates to do the impossible.

Amazon wants affiliates to control what customers do after they click a link and go to Amazon.
