    Well ...

    Even EZA accepts a .info domain-name (or any other TLD) redirected to an affiliate-link. Is that so different? You wouldn't want to do it any less professionally than that anywhere else, either, surely? I mean, you're not going to start doing it with bare links, or bit.ly, or tinyurl, surely?! :confused: :p

    With apologies, I don't know the answer to your question, other than "very many" (which isn't exactly helpful ), but I'm curious why/how the question arises. What does it matter?

    GoArticles do, of the top directories, though I think that is one of the things that devalues them in the eyes of Google (takes ages for their articles to get indexed, often).

    Alexa, I sometimes just spot a little niche that I could do some quick bum marketing on and CANNOT be bothered to register a .info, so I knock out an article, put in an affiliate link and away I go. Though my conspiracy theory is that Google indexes pages slower that have obvious affiliate links in...

    And depending on the aff. program you often can't use a tracking code, which is annoying cos you have no idea if you got sales (e.g. Amazon - I will run out of tags if I register a new one for every single article!). So I agree it probably IS better for any more serious article marketing effort to do some kind of redirect, but sometimes you just don't want the hassle.

    Who says you can't earn money as an eBay affiliate any more? My stats say otherwise

    No reason, really...just curious...I've always wondered. I don't really pay much attention to it, but I have been posting a few articles from ADs to supplement my own content recently and I noticed a few affiliate links in the resource boxes and was just wondering if this was the norm. Apparently it is. As always, thanks Alexa...

      Fair enough: apologies for the inquisition, then - "just testing"!

      (I think probably lots and lots of places do allow it, actually.)
