Amazon affiliate tracking Id's help

5 replies
Hello

I have had an affiliate account for a few years although never really used it besides placing a few widgets on a blog which produced nothing.

I have a site and a blog and want to have a go at creating some sales through these.

I have read some threads that would seem to suggest people use many tracking ID's per site ( I think for each product, maybe to analyse sales but that isn't clear). I was under the impression that I would use one tracking ID per site. Am i wrong or are both methods ok?

Thanks

    I only use one tracking ID per site. You are allowed up to a maximum of 100 per associate account.
    However, according to Chris Guthrie (a successul Amazon afiiliate) on entrepreneurboost.com you should use more multi ids per site to track what is working and what isn't - here is a quote from his site "You absolutely need to use multiple tracking ID’s for every single website you run so that you know what is working and what isn’t. "

    Yes I also use 1 tracking id per site. Have some 25 sits but the tracking IDs are less b/c I use one tracking id for two or three sites sometimes. I read that Amazon allows 100 IDs which means we have plenty of room to create new IDs. It is also important because it will help you to know which site's are making you money.

  • Thanks to both of you. I guess you could use multi track ID'd to analyse where traffic was coming from (site, email, newsletter etc)

      No, it can't come from an email or a newsletter that is emailed. That is against the Amazon tos and will get your account slammed in the garbage can.
