Adding Affiliate Links in Any RSS Feed

5 replies
Is there a good tool to:

A. convert affiliate feeds into RSS feeds?
B. Allow you to embed your affiliate link into any website's rss feed?

I found this plugin, WordPress › Skimlinks Affiliate Marketing Tool « WordPress Plugins
BUT it is outdated!

Saw a few for Amazon, but I would like to monetize any feed like skimlinks promises.

Anyone know of WP plugin or service suggestion that can do this for me?

(FYI - This is to populate and monetize the real estate mentioned in James Renouf's new WSO in case you were wondering how I plan to use this)

    Did the WSO offer any insight of how to do this?

    ...sounds like another case of telling people what to do, vs showing people how to do it.

    How much did you pay for this WSO.

    Don't have a specific answer, but this is probably something you can do using Yahoo Pipes.

      Thanks for the suggestion.

      I've never messed with Yahoo Pipes.

      As far as logic, is it feasible to re-write the rss feed story URL "on click" to set "affiliate cookie" then "re-direct" to original story?

      Anyone have an idea how to do this better or simplify this if I am over-thinking it?

    In order to achieve this recipe, paste the code below to the functions.php file from your theme. If your theme doesn't have a functions.php file, create it.

    <?php
    function insertAds() {
    = .'<hr /><a href="http://www.wprecipes.com">Have you visited WpRecipes today?</a><hr />';
    return ;
    }
    add_filter('the_excerpt_rss', 'insertAds');
    add_filter('the_content_rss', 'insertAds');
    ?>
    Here, we first create a function called insertAds(), which concatenate a code containing our advertisment to the $content variable, which contains the content of the post.
    Then, we use the add_filter() function to overwrite the the_content_rss() function with our insertAds() function. We use another filter to overwrite the_excerpt_rss() function as well.
    That's all, your rss feeds now displays your ads!

    I'm interested in this too, but the last post was 5 years ago.

    Is that post still valid?

    Are there other, better methods now?

    Are there WP plugins that do this?

    Not having technical knowledge, i'm really keen to find a way to do this.

    I'm aware of SkimLinks and VigLink, but although that represents a wide range of products, it's still restricted to them.

    I'm after a way to 'affilify' ANY feed, whether it's associated with those two programs or not.
