Hi, Leo. Now that I've got these book cover images that I got from Amazon to my site, linked to the Amazon URLs, how does that benefit me, since this isn't going to monetize my site? Can you help with that? Thanks very much.

Why do you say it's not going to monetize your site? If you're an Amazon affiliate, you should be making a commission from book sales. If you're not an Amazon affiliate, then you shouldn't link the images.

Right, that's the confusion here. I'm not an affiliate. You see, I have links to research sites for blogs of mine. I wasn't trying to monetize the site then, I was just backing up my content. So, I shouldn't have those images if I copied them from Amazon, that's what you're saying? Would you recommend I apply to become an affiliate? My site's new and I've had visitors, according to Google. Thanks for any help.

Yes, I'd either apply to be an affiliate or remove the images.

I have images of books that I copied into my blog on my site because they are relevant to my content. Am I allowed to link these images to Amazon at all? I don't know anything about this, so I'd really like to know if I'm even in the ballpark. Thanks for any help. My site isn't monetized yet.

Yep you can link your images

Thanks, Leo. (I'm thinking that's your name!) So, just to get that straight, without Amazon's permission I can do that? I guess that's pretty important for me to know. Thanks again. I'm following you now.

My understanding is these are your images that are not off amazons website - if so you’re good to go - if not you can grab the code that will show the image of the books.

You rock! Have followed the misinformation kicking around WA with great frustration and this finally worked. Thanks for taking the trouble to make a video as well. The process is a little convoluted, but you opened my eyes as to the potential of the text screen.

Thanks Leo, What I always do at the "get link" button is to click the down arrow and utilize the cloaked (shortened) URL. Do you not recommend that?

leoemery Premium
I'm not a big amazon affiliate but I don't think it really matters with Amazon. I think that's more a personal choice

Hi Leo, nice stuff as always from you. Just a small remark for viewers: one may remain in visual mode as well. For this, before you grab the link, just remove those a few symbols before http//. Thanks. Jovo
