Hey, I'm from Colorado and am terribly disappointed that I cannot be an Amazon affiliate. I do a lot of book reviews and wanted to link directly to a site that sells books.
Any ideas on this?
As far as I know there is no problem. Some new rules are in the process of being introduced about certain affiliates that are spammy, but I can't imagine Barnes and Noble being among them. Only two links per hub is permitted to the same domain, and not on every hub either.
Welcome to Hubpages
Thanks for your quick response. When you say two links per hub are permitted to the same domain, does that mean I could only link two B&N books per hub? Do you mind explaining that? Thanks a bunch!
Yes. If each link you put in references a particular book, then it'll be two products. If there is a way you can group some products together at the other end and send the visitor through (on one link) to buy their choice you wouldn't need to worry about it, but I'm not up to speed on affiliate marketing to know if this is possible or not.
The rules have always stated (as long as I've been there) that each hub cannot contain more than 2 links to the same site.
You can of course sell as many books (or other products) as you want through Amazon (new rules state you need to write 50 words per product) but then your sales will be split 60/40 with Hubpages.
Yes I have very good option for you, email me or look into the

Oh gosh sorry did I miss this first time around? I thought you asked if it was Ok to be a Barnes and Noble affiliate.
Sorry for mentioning Amazon. Painful word.

Amazon changed their affiliate program yesterday by cutting the payout for most affiliates by half or more. Has HubPages addressed how these changes will affect content providers here?
