Super Amazon Link Localizer
If you use the Amazon Associates program then you know the potential there is to earn an awful lot of money. The only drawback for me has been the fact that I often get people from other countries clicking on links. And that is lost potential earnings.
I have even gone as far as putting links for UK and US folks on product posts and even then people still click the wrong link! Bonkers but true.
Over the years I have looked for ways to overcome this and the only solution I have found was a plugin that would change your links to the correct country with the correct affiliate ID. Only problem is it never worked. Lots of people have tried it and a few have got it to work but most haven’t.
And the fact that it only works for some people means that for me personally it is not to be trusted.
Then I got an email from Billy Bluehat.
Want to try out my new Amazon Link Localizer?
Sure, if it works then that would be great.
So, I installed it on a site and we did a few tweaks, well Billy did, I just did as I was told 😉
And the result is an Amazon Link Localizer that actually works.
It is a simple plugin that you install. You then put your affiliate ID’s in the boxes and you are good to go. Then, when visitors come to your site and click on your Amazon links they are re-directed to the right country. If the product is available in their country on Amazon then they are sent direct to the product.
If you link to a search term they are sent to that search term for their country. If you link to a product and it is not available in their country then the visitors are sent to a search results page for the product.
Basically it is an amazing little plugin for anyone doing Amazon.
I only have it on a few sites at the moment and it has been performing flawlessly. UK sales have been made and I can see it being worth its weight in gold as we get nearer to Christmas and the UK folks actually begin to buy. They are notoriously hard to convert in comparison to the US but it is silly to miss out on potential income.
Use the link building strategy to boost your serps positions then let Billy’s plugin ensure you get all possible sales.
Looking through my sites and the traffic sources it is a shame for me personally that a lot of them are for products not searched for in other countries so I am going to be somewhat limited in the number of sites I actually use it on. But you really should check your stats and if you get any traffic from non US countries then you need this plugin.
You then simply register with the appropriate Amazon affiliate site program and get your ID. Stick them all in the boxes available with the plugin and you are good to go.
You will basically earn your money back in a few days so it is a win win situation. And that is not an affiliate link, just helping out a friend and letting you know that this great plugin exists.
AMK is the winner of the Penpal quest and has been notified and hopefully she is interested in writing me a kick ass letter now and then.
The Pond is getting there and should be live for you to register by the end of the week. You can see the homepage for the forum at the Pond. You will be registering here by making a monthly subscription and then a password will be sent out to you. I have already made it private so no one can register manually so there will be zero spam accounts and only people who are really interested will be on the forum. It is also private to the search engines. Nothing written there will be indexed and show up in search.
I have already put up some content you will be interested in and a lot more will follow this week and once we go live.
Hopefully I will see you there.
Check out Billy’s plugin, it is worth its weight in gold, honestly.
