Wa profile blog shortened with bitly not allowed in gplus?
I found an inspiring story here in WA. Excited, I grabbed my affiliate link for that blog post, shortened it using Bitly, and then posted in a Google+ group filled with affiliate links.
Here's my message:
A lot of people stoop down at #Amazon's #affiliate program thinking the earning potential is too small. Well, this story may change your mind. http://bit.ly/2hoq62x
The link was posted, but after a few seconds, there was a pop up with a warning.

That frightened me.
But with crossed eye brows.
"What? I am receiving that warning? But look, there are hundreds of affiliate links in there already posted. Did they receive the same warning I am receiving?"
That was my reaction. I can't believe I've been flagged when there are hordes of spammers out there with posts some are even outright scams.
Now, my question is, are WA's links blacklisted in Google+?
If that's the case, then I will change strategy in Google+. Perhaps, just sharing blog posts via my own domain name.
