Amazon’s Associate program with Blogger

Amazon’s Associate program announced the partnership with Google’s blog platform, Blogger. With just two clicks, Google Blogger users can now add revenue-generating Amazon product links to their blogs.

Amazon’s Associate program may not appear on blog that has already monetised with Google Adsense. One of my blog's Monetise Tab has been missing for long time, and no Adsense widget either. So I have to add Adsense html/Javascript code manually. But the Monetise Tab reappeared several days ago, to my surprise, this links to Amazon’s Associate program.

I have already two Amazon’s Associate program Tracking-ID, without realising they are different, one tracking ID ends up with "-20", signifying the North America region of the Associate, while another ends with "-21", signifying the UK region of the Associate. You can add another tracking ID of the same region, but it seems that you can't merge two ID of different region.

What we care most is the payment. There are three ways of referral fee payment: by cheque, Amazon gift card, and direct deposit to you bank account. The threshold of payment via site gift card or direct deposit is at least $10.00, and that of payment via check, is at least $100.00.

URL cannot contain a Google host

Google just opened up Knol to the public. Knol is also serving up AdSense advertising on the site. Authors on Knol can enter their AdSense data into Knol, and will get the regular AdSense payout for every click on an ad. This seems like a smart way to reward users who write the best (or most popular) content, while still making money for Google, because the cut Google already takes from the advertising through AdSense anyway. Currently, I don't know how may we track ads performance on knol, I tried to add an URL channel, and got error message: "" at line 1 invalid: URL cannot contain a Google host. Has anybody any idea of how to do it?
