    I heard this was possible by just linking Amazon to your website some how and if people use that link then you can make money. Is this true? ...and how would I go about this exactly?

    Some blogs are built entirely around marketing Amazon products. Usually these blogs include indepth reviews of specific Amazon products with affiliate links directly to those pages. The good thing about an affiliate blog is how your over head is low, usually just a site domain name. And, you can use either Wordpress or blogger. You should take care when creating your product reviews to make them sound believable.

    Amazon is a good alternative for Google Adsense. It helps you to earn a lot if your website has got good unique visitors.

    It sounds like there is a definite possibility I can make money doing that then. I will have to look more into Amazon.

    You can earn pretty well with amazon affiliate program, it is also good to use it in combination with adsense. A great idea is to find a good niche and make a blog/website perhaps in wordpress. Your job would be posting fresh content daily, optimizing your site for amazon and focusing on long tail keywords. If you are able to do this then you could earn a decent cash with amazon :)

    You can if you become an affiliate, but it is not a stable source of income, or so I have heard.

    This is possible yes, by becoming an Amazon Affiliate you are able to place relevant links on say your blog. Even use these affiliate links when writing a review or just talking about a product. Any people who hit the link and purchase what you were advertising you will get a percentage from that sale. It's a good way of making some extra money if you can get the hits and keep the content flowing.

    Yes, I believe having relevant information to coincide with the products that may be sold on Amazon is key. There are so many things to talk about that I blog almost seems like a no brainer to carry out this sort of thing. I just need get on the ball and start rolling. ;)
