    Associate o Matic vs Associate Engine
    I have been using Associate Engine for years but it doesn't work with the Amazon Associates Web Service (although a release is promised by the end of March, I am starting to look around just in case).

    I noticed Associate o Matic mentioned here in this forum. Does anyone have experience with both that they could share?

    Thanks.

    I have been using Associate-O-Matic for a couple of years. You can easily build a stand-alone site with it - but even though it is SEO'd, Goog doesn't like this kind of site.

    However, it can be a fine addition to a site that already attracts traffic; as a "shopping section" of such a site it works fine. It provides a lot of the Amazon's "cool" features - even including product reviews. It is also fairly easy to customize to the look/feel of your site with a banner upload and color selections. There is also a header and footer code upload so you can fully integrate the display into pages of your site. This is the part I've had the most success with - creating a blended in shopping section.

    Google HATES duplicate content, however you can partially trick google by reformatting and shifting content. For example I use the amazon api to add user reviews as wordpress comment in a blog, so each product is a blog entry. Make sure you properly format your HTML as well, H2 headings for important stuff, strong tags as well on some keywords. Have fun
