    It seems Amazon continues to make it hard on its affiliates. Use to one could normally scroll to the bottom of a screen and find links to browse categories. Now I know it was not intended to be used just by us affiliates, but I was going to add a browse link to my store, and low and behold, I can not discover if Amazon has a browse number for the Lord of the rings series.

    Does anyone know how to find these numbers NOW? Amazon has restructured its website AGAIN and this information seems to allude me.

    Amazon.com's Lord of the Rings store is at browse node 753570

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/browse/-/753570

    However, because of the non-standard design Amazon.com used on that page, you cannot use ae.pl?type=browse&mode=753570 or ae.pl?type=best&mode=753570

    You can use that page to determine other browse node numbers that do work with ae.pl. For example, in the left margin, "J.R.R. Tolkien Bookstore" links to http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/browse/-/16038/ so to show books you could use ae.pl?type=browse&mode=16038 or ae.pl?type=best&mode=16038

    Note: The links that look like http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/browse/-/753570/ are to browse pages. The number after the "/browse/-/" tells you what browse node number to use. However, some of the links look like http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/feature/-/232333/ (note the "/feature/-/"); these link to Amazon.com "feature" pages. Feature pages cannot be displayed by ae.pl or any other AWS-based script. Amazon.com's AWS only provides data for browse pages.

    You can also do a keyword search to show Lord of the Rings products. For example:

    Videos: ae.pl?type=search&mode=vhs&keyword=Lord+of+the+Rings
    DVD's: ae.pl?type=search&mode=dvd&keyword=Lord+of+the+Rings
    Books: ae.pl?type=search&mode=books&keyword=Lord+of+the+Rings
    Toys: ae.pl?type=search&mode=toys&keyword=Lord+of+the+Rings
