In the Amazon Associates affiliate backend they teach a way to make quick links after installing a "linked widget". Does the Hubpages code have this widget functionality included? (I assume there is no way to add it to our profile ourselves.)
See text from Amazon below.
Add Quick Linker Widget
After you install this widget to your blog or Web Page, you can quickly and easily link to relevant Amazon.com products as you write your blog posts or update your page content by including custom HTML tags as you type. Your Quick Links will have your Associates ID automatically included. Learn more
* Harry Potter
o Links to Amazon.com search results page for "Harry Potter".
* My favorite hero
o The link reads "My favorite hero" and points to a search results page for the phrase"Harry Potter".
* My favorite hero
o Links to a search results page for the phrase "Harry Potter", but only in the Books category.
o View a list of valid Amazon.com category attributes
* I love this item
o The link reads "I love this item" and links directly to the specific Amazon product with Amazon id (ASIN) "B000012345"
Just discovered we can grap links easily on each Amazon page (when logged in to Associates).
Somehow I did not notice this before - this is even better than the Quick Link Widget.

Hi all. I have set up Amazon Affiliate program on hubpages and featured Amazon products on a number of my hubs. Looking at it after a while, the link-type report in the Amazon account shows that no one has clicked on...
