    Poor Keyword targeting
    I have keyword "3d Studio Max" for books , and most of the time Amazon shows Irrelevant books, and some times highly relevent 3DS Max Books. Amazon have 100s of books on 3ds max then why not show them for the keyword? I tried both 3d studio max & 3ds max. Whenever amazon shows relevant books, I get sales, when irrelevant, I don't get any sale.

    So amazon keyword targeting SUCKS.

    I presume you are talking about the Self-Optimising Links, if you are having problems with this I suggest that you find a way to take the pages keyword and insert it into the code for a normal iframe content unit

    HTML Code:
    <iframe src="http://rcm-uk.amazon.co.uk/e/cm?t=YOURAMAZOID&o=2&p=10&l=st1&mode=books&search=<?php $yourkeyword; ?>&=1&fc1=&lt1=&lc1=&bg1=&f=ifr" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0" width="120" height="450" border="0" frameborder="0" style="border:none;" scrolling="no"></iframe>
    You have a lot more control over this than the beta self optimising links.
