An Amazon Linking Dilemma
I've spent the past few days trying to replace the wrong Amazon links on all of the blog posts on my site. It all started when I realized that I wasn't getting credit for sales that I was sure were taking place.
So I called Amazon Affiliates Help Desk and learned that I actually had two accounts, one of which was invalid. Years ago I had an Amazon Affilialte account for a different platform (Squidoo) and had never cancelled it.
When I joined Wealthy Affiliate, I applied for and was granted affiliate status with Amazon.
Long story short, the old affiliate identification was what I was using. Apparently, I was logging into the old account. The person I talked with was wonderful. She checked my site to see if my links were working and they weren't.
So we deleted that account and I'm in the process of replacing all the links in all my posts. I've had to delete pictures and text and replace them. It's going well but it'll take me the rest of the weekend, I think!
The good news is that I have less than 40 posts on that site. I'm about one-third of the way through. And I'm kind of taking the opportunity to update some of the evergreen posts. I choose to think the glass is half-full. :-)
My point is, be sure you're linking properly. She told me that after I finish fixing my site I'm welcome to call, again, to be sure the links are working the way they should. I will do that, for sure.
I was so impressed with the help I received! Just thought I'd share this with all of you.
Hope you're all having a wonderful weekend!
