    Unless their ToS is changed then the answer is no. They don't allow redirect also.

    No I think Yahoo will change its terms and allows direct affiliate marketing to compete with msn and google :D

    Where in the TOS does it state that we cannot use it for CJ linking?
    If this is the case, I'm not going to proceed with the account!

    This explains it all:

    http://help.yahoo.com/l/uk/yahoo/ysm/sps/start/editorial/ownership_affiliates.html

    and believe me - they do enforce this rule. This is coming from somebody who had their account disabled for over 1 week for direct linking. Yahoo's review process after an account has been disabled is SLOW...So, unless you're okay with being without an account for a long time, you're better off not direct linking at all.

    Thanks for the heads up, I see that in their TOS. I'll make sure I don't put any redirects in my campaigns. Is this the same for Google Adsense? Or other PPC programs out there? Thanks.
