Amazon Affiliate Links For UK Rather Than US
Can Amazon Links Be Pointed to amazon.uk?
Well, depending on what you are asking.
If you signed up as a UK affiliate with Amazon to earn money online, then the code you generate from that program should indeed point your visitors to the UK site. In fact, in some cases, there are widgets and links provided via the Amazon Associates website that allow you to determine which Amazon shopping website is used. Of course, this only applies to dynamic Amazon ad links or those that otherwise do not specify a specific product target for the affiliate link.
To gain more granular control over which international or worldwide Amazon website an affiliate marketing link directs to, create product specific Amazon Associates links. To do so, choose one of the affiliate options from the Associates dashboard website that requires you to input a particular product. Then, either use the toolbar or the search function to locate the item you wish to create a promotional affiliate link for. The trick, is to select the product from the right country's Amazon site.
For example, if you want an Amazon Associates link to point to amazon.uk instead of amazon.com, then choose the product from the amazon.uk website. This will have the added effect of having the ad display the price in Pounds instead of Dollars on widgets and links that support that feature.
If you are asking about earning money on HubPages, then the answer is no. HubPages generates generic code and inserts your Amazon number. As a US website, that generic code points to Amazon US. The good news is that Amazon will give you credit whether someone buys something via the UK site or the US site. If you want to be 100% sure, or just keep your US/UK stuff separate, you could sign up for a US Amazon account.
Amazon Associates Links Make Money
HubPages Amazon Links Point To Other Country
Many HubPages authors use the affiliate settings feature to make money from writing online by generating ongoing passive income from HubPages traffic. However, by using the HubPages system, the writer loses some of the granular control involved with ad placement and the creation of affiliate marketing links.
In the case of Amazon Associates links, HubPages generates a template of generic code based upon the Amazon module that the Hubber selects when writing and publishing their hub. Regardless of what option the author chooses, this generic code does two things.
- The author's Amazon Associate ID number is inserted into the ad code based upon whatever information is provided in the My Account section under Affiliate settings.
- The widgets and links all point to amazon.com by default.
