I’m always interested in trying to find new ways to monetize my blog. I have decided to become an Amazon Affiliate because I love Amazon and who doesn’t? But I have been having problems generating sales through the blog. I have tried to add the widget for some book reviews and I also have the search widget on the sidebar. But it still hasn’t been generating anything.
So for the past couple of weeks I have been using the plugin Wp Auto Affiliate Links. Wp Auto Affiliate Links is a wordpress plugin that will automatically add affiliate links into your content. It can work with links that you add manually or you upload trough a data feed, but it can also extract and display links from Amazon and Clickbank.
Successful bloggers are getting most of their income by promoting affiliate products. However, this is not easy because you have to post and maintain all your affiliate links. What if you had to insert affiliate links in 500 posts, or 1000? That will take an enormous amount of time. What if one of the products you placed links for changed affiliate network and you have to change all the links ? Dealing with affiliate links on a high content blog may take all your free time so you are going nowhere.
While I like that it does all the work for me – it does post some random links that have no relevance what so ever to my post. I also don’t like that in my product reviews it posts links to completely different product within the posts. I have not found a way for it to only post affiliate links into certain blog posts.
If you have more broad topics on your blog, this may be the way to go for you. But for me, it just doesn’t seem to be working out. You can make the links automatically no follow and choose the amount of links you wish to have in each post (ranging from Very Low to Very High) and if you’d like the links to open in new windows or not.
