    Question keyword not correct
    I have a script to call for a search on books, keyword wine, but this only brings up books on cookery! If you search directly on Amazon.co.uk site in the books section for wine it comes up correctly.

    This is my script:
    <script src="http://www.wineloversclub.co.uk/cgi-bin/books.pl?script&type=search&mode=books&keyword=wine"></script>


    This can be seen here:

    That's amazon.co.uk doing that. The descriptions of those cookery books probably mention the word "wine".

    Amazon has products organized into a category hierarchy, and each point in that hierarchy is called a browse node. So instead of doing a keyword search (which searches the entire category hierarchy), do a browse node search instead (which searches a specific category hierarchy browse node). The amazon.co.uk browse node for "Food & Drink > Wine & Winemaking" is 271030.

    So, use parameters:

    script&type=browse&mode=271030

    See FAQ: How do I determine the browse number to use in type=browse&mode=NUMBER ?

    Thanks David - works a charm now. I thought it was probably Amazon.

    Ok I think the scripts are very useful for everyone.

    Thanks Stuart. Besides the Amazon.com script, have you checked out my other scripts?
