January 17th, 2010, 08:42 PM #1How to add tracking ID to Amazon pages?
Do I have to log in to Amazon's affiliate site to "get link/html" every time I want to promote certain products?
Can I simply add something like "&tag=abcde-20" to its product URL and make it work this way?

If this is what you're talking about..try the Site Stripe on the Links & Banners page.Joey

The advantage of using Site Stripe or Associates Central to make more structured links is that you can get better conversion tracking in the Amazon reports. But once you understand the URL structure for those more structured links, you can also make those all by yourself without going to Amazon's tools.--

Thanks for all your insights. I basically want to write some scripts to automatically append the tracking ID for any product URL. I have a person help me out by posting products. I want her to just add the URL in the content management system and the tracking ID will be appended automatically. Doable?

What kind of the link structure would you recommend for scripting? For example, if I want to promote this page http://www.amazon.com/gp/goldbox/ref=cs_top_nav_gb27, do I just put the ID at the end to make it: http://www.amazon.com/gp/goldbox/ref=cs_top_nav_gb27&tag=abcde-20.
Will this way always work for any link within amazon.com?

- If the Amazon URL already has a ? (question mark) in it, then append &tag=abcde-20 to the end
- If the Amazom URL doesn't already have a ? in it, then append ?tag=abcde-20 to the end
So for your example, it should be www. amazon. com/gp/goldbox/ref=cs_top_nav_gb27?tag=abcde-20
But do check the links once in a while using the Link Checker in Amazon's Associates Central. It's a handly tool.
(Good thing your link didn't work, because putting working affiliate links in the forum is basically a no-no. )--
