Cut or Copy & Paste?

    I just noticed the Amazon site tells me to cut & paste the product link - I have been doing a copy & paste!  Does it really make a difference?

      I wouldnt think so since your really can not cut the link out of Amazon.

          For those websites or blogs for which you have. There is only cut&paste for the individual line item choice over keyword choice, in the Amazon capsule.

          You know, when you open an Amazon capsule, it tells you to enter in individual identification numbers/links or you can select keywords.

          Hope that helped. smile

            didn't know I could select keywords - I'll hafta check on that. 

            geez, I hope I'm doing this right. 

            When I go to the Associate links & banners page, I search for product, click the Get Link button, select link type, highlight HTML, & then copy & paste - today I noticed it told me to Cut & Paste.    does it matter if I copy or cut?

      I use the copy text link and paste into my capsules. I don't think how it's done will matter if it's showing up in your Hubs. smile hope that helps.

        nah, I was just a wee bit worried.  cuz I thought if the ads were placed wrong nothing would happen, ya know?  I realize I dont have enough traffic yet and I'm not too worried about that cuz I'm enjoying myself.  smile

      The lingo essentially means the same thing - whether you cut and paste or copy and paste.
