One of his revenue streams is through the Amazon affiliate program so he earns a commission on sales of his own books and others he recommends. On his podcast he mentions to listeners that in order to help support his work they can go to his website and purchase through his Amazon links.
Sounds reasonable... Unfortunately, Amazon doesn't see it that way and has deleted his affiliate account!
Apparently, you are not allowed to tell people that purchasing through your links supports your site.
I know I have mentioned that on my site and in newsletters. I deleted what I could find and hope I'm okay now but I'm not sure.
Anyway, if you have been encouraging your site visitors to use your affiliate links in this way—heads up! I know you can't induce people to click on Google AdSense ads but had no idea about Amazon. I don't know about the policies of other companies either.
