For those of you who use Blogger, you probably already know about Amazon Associates in general because you can use it easily through the Monetize tab. I've been using Amazon Associates for a few years now, even before I was using Blogger. The thing I find to be the most handy when using the program is the Site Stripe.
In my opinion, Amazon doesn't promote the Site Stripe very much but I think it's the best thing since sliced bread. Once you choose to use it, it will automatically appear when you have signed into Amazon. Then if you happen to be browsing Amazon on your own and come across something you want to add to your blog, you can EASILY create a link or widget directly from the site without having to go into the Blogger Monetize tab.
Here is the image Amazon posts to show what it looks like:
- go to your Amazon Associates account
- click on Account settings up in the top right hand corner of the page
- choose Associate Site Stripe options
- It will allow you to select which options you want on your site stripe so you can link to the page, add to your aStore, add to widget, view your earnings summary, share a shortened URL on twitter and more!
