    Will hubpages be effected by the Amazon change?  (The Change) As a reminder, starting May 1, 2009, we will no longer pay referral fees to Associates who send users to www.amazon.com, www.amazon.ca or www.endless.com through paid search advertisements on Google, Yahoo, MSN, and other search engines, and their extended search networks.

      Did you see those words "paid search"?  You don't pay Google, Yahoo or MSN, do you?  So stop worrying!

        I didn't know if Hubpage purchases keywords.

    Yes they are not accepting traffic via adwords anymore. I really doubt that you are paying for adwords ads without knowing the details of the TOS with Amazon!

    This is how paid search advertisements works:

    A person goes to Adwords and tells Google they want to buy an Adsense add for .05 to appear in Google.com's search results or on a site that has Adsense ads.  They then fill out a great title and a little blurb and then create a url to appear in the add.  But the ad does not point to an actual website but to Amazon with an affiliate ID of the add purchaser.

    It is my understanding that Amazon will no longer allow this to happen.

    So it does not affect people reading hubs and then following your link to amazon.com.
