I can't build links to amazon product

by mark T 4 replies
I have spent so much time, money and effort trying to promote an Amazon product, only to discover that I can't build links to it because the owner does not allow it. Do I abandon this product or there is a way round it?:confused:

    The owner doesn't allow you to build links to an Amazon product? I am confused.. the only people that would not be allowing you promote a product on Amazon would be... Amazon?

    If you are trying to promote the Panasonic shaver that you have in your signature, then I don't think you are doing anything wrong. Build links to YOUR site (the one in your signature) to get it ranked in the search engines, and then turn all of the links on your site into an affiliate link for that Amazon product.

    Does that make sense?

    Regards,

    A bit off-topic but, your permalinks on the blog in your signature aren't set up correctly, Mark. There's whitespace and an extra slash that don't have to be there.

    Here's what Amazon has to say about it.....part of the contractual agreement with specific merchants.

    I wouldn't recommend trying to find a way around the restriction. Amazon would definitely frown on it.

    Check if you can promote the product through Commission Junction. (not affiliate Link)

    Or find a similar product to promote on Amazon.

    or if you have traffic, put adsense on the site and see if you cant get a few bucks.
