How many affiliates on one page?

Thanks to a really helpful page written by humagaia, I have now set up my Viglink account. My question is: if I'm writing a page where I want to feature a couple of products from different affiliates, is that ok? Or, do I have to stick to just one affiliate per page? 

I have no idea why suddenly this post is bolded by the way, the bold key is not checked.

There's no limit to the number per page. If at all you cross the limit your page won't be published and you'd be informed as to how many more words your article needs to consist of. 

As far as I know the minimum is 50 words per amazon/zazzle module. Not sure about links through viglink though. That I'll let someone else answer and I'd be interested to know as well :)

Thanks LB. I've just noticed that one of my articles seems to be getting more UK than US traffic- so I've just said that similar products are available from Amazon.co.uk  and added the link.

Oh, let me know if you see an increase in Viglink clicks because of it. It would be interesting to know.

Will do. I'm now trying to figure out just how many different affiliate resources there are. Exciting stuff!

Put yourself in your readers' shoes and ask yourself: what's useful to them?

Tons of links are not useful - readers can get that through Google search.

Personal, insightful reviews are best. Anticipate questions, doubts, problems, issues ... and offer solutions. Then add a link.

Other than that (and the minimum word count per ad), we have no hard and fast rules for the number of links.

Thanks, Chef.

I'd just noticed that more UK readers were coming to a page looking for information about a product, but the outgoing links were for Amazon.com, not Amazon.co.uk. I was unsure whether it was acceptable to add a link to .com and .co.uk. on the same page. So, I've just added a sentence and one additional link to very similar, in some cases the same product.

If you feature both Amazon com and uk on your page, you better let the readers know about it. Otherwise, I don't see a problem with that.
