Amazon product links,,,,

    I'm pretty good at linking Amazon differently than the norm to better make use of SEO. However I do have one question I hope someone knows.

    If you use the product link method, and use the image link, you notice that your Aff. ID shows up twice.

    Once in the actual hyperlink, and again in that last part that starts after the main image URL. In fact it seems to be another image layout but nothing shows.

    If you cut out and used only your full href= with your code in it to make a picture clickable, would your hits still work right and get credit for the sale? hmm

    As a matter of habit, I have NEVER used the default aff link. Whether it is an image or text link, what I often use instead is

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B003O6EE4U/[yourID]-20

    replace the ASIN # with that of the product you want to link to

    Hope that helps.....

      Thanks, that does help. I was afraid if leaving out the second link they use in the default product link would cause your hits to not track right.

      I don't even know what that other one is there for? Thanks again. smile
