How to Add a Amazon astore to Your Blogger Blog

Updated on January 2, 2011

Adding a Astore to your Blog

Adding a Amazon astore to your blogger website or blog is actually really easy. This can be a truly beneficial element to your website to make some money. Whats nice about the astore is that it does everything through your website although amazon handles it. This way it doesn't look tacky by having people click a link to go to the store. I know if I saw that I would click back and find a new site. Below I will show you the steps to make the most of your astore on your blogger account as well as making it fit right.  Dont worry you don't have to be a computer wiz to do this.  Blogger tried to make it easier and they did to a point with the new page.  This makes it easier to add a astore to the blogger account.  So for anyone looking to add a Amazon astore to their blogger blog keep reading.

Creating a Astore For Blogger

The key to making a astore is to have it match your blog template, font, color, and background. These are key to how successful you will be. Just think if you saw a store with different colors, fonts, and background color was a completely different color. Most people think its a scam.

Category Pages: This is where you can add specific items from amazon, select a general list from amazon, or select items from a keyword list. This is very important if you have a niche site on or blog then you can select your favorite items for people to view. Or if you have a site on say dog toys like www.caninecritics.com then you can select from a keyword list or the categories. This is beneficial because it can give people 2-10 or more pages of products to surf through which increases your potential income. You can also write a description on the page which is another beneficial element to a store you can describe what you'll have for sale on that page or what your customers can expect.

Color & Design: This may seem like the fun page but this can be a deal breaker for many. You want the colors to match exactly or if you can't darn close to the colors of your website or blog. You can also name your store here usually picking something that comes off your blog. Like Canine Critics Dog Toys & Supplies for caninecritics.com. Also you can add a custom logo to the store which isn't real crucial but can add creative touch to it. I have never seen any benefits coming from adding it.

Sidebar & Widget: This is crucial for your blogger account. To add the astore to your blogger website you should put the sidebar on the right because by the time your done you won't see it. Then hit get link and your ready to work.

You don't need to know html or css for adding the code to your blogger and making it fit.  To add the store go to New Post and then click on the Edit Pages.  Next hit the blue button that says New Page.  This will bring you to a post screen then you click the Edit Html on the top right the paste the "Embed my store using an inline frame" into it.  The code will read

iframe src="http://astore.amazon.com/xxxxxxx-xx" width="90%" height="4000" frameborder="0" scrolling="no"></iframe

If you hit the paste button your store will not look right because the side bar on the right is cut in half.  Well this isn't good and here is where a simple change will fix all that.  The part that says width="90% change that to width="80%.  this will reduce it.  Also change your blog type to only having adds on the right.

Next go into the design tab on blogger and click the template designer, then go to the layout link and go to adjust width and click on it. Change your Entire Blog to 1000px and Right Sidebar to 255px.  Remember this only works for you if the sidebar is on the right in your blogger blog or website.

Where to Place the Page Tab?

You can also decide where to but your pages tabs.  Each site is different I noticed a 56% higher click rate that on the side of the website.  I have a feeling this has to do with people thinking things on the side are just ads.

      To fix the categories and shopping cart you may have to play with the width for your bog and your astore width %

      I'm kind of confused. I get a code for amazon but where do I place that on my hubpages? Whenever I try to place it, the form of html comes out. Any help will be appreciated.
