In my earlier post, I talked about Amazon Affiliate program which is a good way to make money by selling the product. The best part is, it works for every niche & if you do it right, the payout will be huge.
Now, in this question, I will deal with the most common question asked by newbie Amazon affiliates: “How to create Amazon affiliate link.”
Extending earlier tutorial here I’m sharing how you can create an affiliate link to an individual product on Amazon. By now, I assume you have signed up as an Amazon Affiliate, in case if you haven’t you can sign up from here.
You will be earning money from Amazon affiliate online when someone follows your Amazon referral link and buys something. That also includes further purchases.
Or simply browse Amazon site while logging into your Amazon affiliate link. On every page at the top, you can find amazon Affiliate link generator which will let you grab Amazon affiliate links instantly.
Step by step guide to creating Amazon affiliate link:
Once your application is approved, login to your Amazon affiliate panel & now head to any product page on Amazon website. At the top, you would see the option call Amazon Associates site stripe.
Here click on Get link > Text
In the above screenshot, you can see how to get your affiliate link. If you are using store ID or tracking ID for tracking, you can change that too. (Don’t worry if you haven’t started using store ID or tracking ID. We will cover this in the upcoming chapter”.
In case you want to make any changes in the site strip option, you can do that from your Amazon associate account. Here is the direct link for making changes in the site strip option.
Another way to create affiliate link for Amazon products:
The first option is the neatest & fastest one. There are other ways to create an affiliate link for Amazon product & let’s have a look at other option too.
Login to your Amazon associate account & click on Product linking > Product links:
On the next page, you have two options. Search for a product or add ASIN/ISBN Code of an individual product. I prefer the second one as it’s fast in those ways. You can find more information about ASIN/ISBN codes here.
How to Get ASIN code of Individual Amazon Product?
Now the first step is to find the product which is relevant to your website/blog. You can search for any product by going directly to Amazon.com homepage. Once you have found the product, go to product detail part. In this case, I’m getting ASIN code of this product.
Grab the Amazon Affiliate link for the product:
So now we have ASIN code of the product. Go to add a product link page. (Refer Image 1). Add ASIN code of the product and click on the go. Refer to the following image:
Click on get links & you will be able to get text links or image links that you can paste on your Website.

Hey , I’ve been doing a google search to know, if there is any SEO issue if I insert amazon affiliate links on my website without rel=”nofollow” attribute.

Thank you SML! I just signed up for the affiliate program and I hope to make it big with them.
I have a question. Can I publish the affiliate link to “Product Category” instead of using an affiliate link to a particular product on my blog?
E.g. using the affiliate link to “Electronic Category” instead of an actual electronic product.
Will I get the commission even if the visitor buys something other than Electronic products?

I have a question regarding amazon’s cookies expiration (in the aftermath).
My question is, since Amazon has a standard 24 hour cookie duration, and says for example you’re promoting 10 products on your niche website and after the expiration of cookies you want UPDATE/REFRESH COOKIES AFTER 24 HOURS SO THAT YOU DON’T MISS OUT ON COMMISSIONS.
Do you manually copy-paste affiliate links for those 10 products 1 by 1 ?
Or is there any plugin/tool where we can update/refresh old affiliate links with new (which are not expired) cookies ?
I would really appreciate if you can help out with this.
Hey , use EasyAzon plugin for ur issue. 🙂
