    Low sales in Amazon - New Link Structure?
    Amazon recently changed their linking structure. Over the last 4 days I've seen a drastic drop in sales (from 30-40 items a day to 5-6). Last night I noticed that my marketplace links weren't showing the marketplace offers any longer, rather I was landing on a product details page.

    I've changed my links to the new URL structure and will see what happens. I've seen a couple people complaining about a drastic decrease in sales.

    Has any else seen a similiar drop? BTW I'm using Amazon web services to generate most of my links, which go through a redirector on amazon now-a-days, another recent change...

    Just a quick update on this... I changed my marketplace urls to:

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/XXXXX?tag=YYYYY

    And my conversions came roaring back. It just reminds me that I need to check my urls when my tracking shows something wierd. Hmmm, note to self, schedule a regular URL sanity check...

    I have not changed my links, but my Amazon sales have been picking up steadily since September 1.
    There's good, fast and cheap. Pick any two.
