Create Amazon Affiliate Link

I need to create Amazon affiliate links because I am finding it annoying to use the features on their site to construct the links and promote their products. Here’s how I do it:

Amazon Product Link (it’s long and scary, don’t worry though):

http://www.amazon.com/Weider-WEBE0914-200-Power-Tower/dp/B000M2AHRM/ref=sr_1_1?s=sporting-goods&ie=UTF8&qid=1346710815&sr=1-1&keywords=weider+200+power+tower

Turn Link Into This

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B000M2AHRM/?tag=your_affiliate_id

You take the section of the link after the /dp/ which I have bolded for you above. This is the ASIN (Amazon Standard Identification Number) in thie case, B000M2AHRM – and reconstruct the link above. Then you add a ?tag=your_affiliate_id

The your_affiliate_id is an affiliate id Amazon gives you when you sign up as an affiliate. To sign up as an affiliate and create your own links, go to the Amazon Affiliate Page. Just click the “Join” icon in the middle of the page.

Happy affiliate selling :)
