That's the code, not the link.

You go to Amazon for a product page that you want to promote. Then on top-left you'll find the text link. It's a short link.

Can you give us more information? Where are you placing the Amazon link? Is it attached to a picture or text or is it on its own in a block?

I am placing them in the text. I choose the word and I highlighted, then I press add a link and I insert the code, then I click apply and then I go and check my website page , I refresh it, then I click at the word or link but it doesn't takes me to the article.

Hi - so, you have been accepted as an affiliate by Amazon? And next, you choose the product you wish to promote. On the product page, there are links which you click on, that give you a code that you copy. When you have written your article, you paste the code into it in WordPress. Are you doing all these stages?

Which Amazon links are you using? If it's the text link then you only need the part between the quotes that starts with https://.

If it's the image or text + image one then you take the whole code and paste it into the text tab of your post.

Are you using the link that amazon gives you?
Also are you using it in the "text" option within wordpress?

At the top of the product page in Amazon, you have 3 choices; "text" "image" or "text+image"

This code you have quoted is for the "text + image" which you paste into the text and it shows up a photo and the price of the book, which you then click to go to Amazon.

If you want to do the word highlighting link, just get the "text" from Amazon and do as you have been doing. Don't forget to click update in WordPress.
