Amazon Associates BookmarkletA bookmarklet to convert any Amazon product page into a page 'tagged' with your Amazon Associates ID
To use this bookmarklet, follow these steps:
- Drag the above link to your browser's toolbar.
- Click the bookmarklet while you are on any Amazon product page.
- Wait for the page to refresh and then, depending on your intended use, either do nothing or copy/paste the URI that's now in the address bar.
I've tested this only on Firefox and Safari, but it should work with most any web browser.
*Disclaimer*: I love Amazon. And I have Amazon Associates account that gives me a chance to send people to Amazon thru my referral links and get paid. I usually generate about 10 bucks in 6 months, so this is more like fun rather than a business. :)
Anyways, after getting tired of Firefox slowness on my Mac laptop and moving to Safari, I found that I missing the Amazon Affiliates plugin more than I thought I would. Even after Amazon has added a site bar on the top of the page, it still needs too much of clicks and keystrokes.
So I thought that I would do a quick bookmarklet to make a proper affiliates link for Amazon pages. However, Googling first, I found this link and it was working fine.
You can probably do well without URL shortener now.
Here is the code:
Sorry if it doesn't read well - I don't know all the tricks of Posterous' bookmarklet, yet, too. :) Enjoy.
