Amazonアソシエイト・プログラムについての詳細はどこで知ることができますか?

You can find more information on the Amazon Associates Program at Amazon Associates Help.

このプラグインはどのように動作しますか?

このプラグインはリアルタイムにAmazon Product Advertising APIを呼び出し、Amazonのカタログデータから商品を検索します。設定項目にて指定するAPIの認証キーはこの検索時に使うAPI呼び出しで使用されます。またこのプログインは一定期間APIの実行結果をキャッシュしAPIの利用頻度を最適化する機能を有します。

このプラグインを通して作成したリンクによる売上を確認することはできますか?

Yes. You can track the performance of the ad unit by placement or section of your website by using tracking ids. You are recommended to use different tracking ids for different ad templates. This will allow you to track orders and earnings information for each type of ad using the reports section in Associates Central. You can create tracking ids here.

どのような情報がAmazonにシェアされますか?

Information we learn from Amazon Associates Link Builder users helps us to evaluate performance of the plugin, troubleshoot technical issues, and generally improve the plugin. We only capture information on impressions, clicks, and sales for Amazon affiliate links in accordance with the Amazon.com Privacy Notice.

どのようなサポートを受けられますか?

Amazon公式リンク作成ツールのプラグインメニューにあるAboutか、 ユーザーガイド で詳しい情報を確認いただけます。また困った場合や質問がある場合はAmazon Associates Link Builder Plugin Forum(英語)もご活用ください。

どのようにすれば各国のAmazonサイトにリンクを設定することができますか?

You can search products using keywords in any supported country, but you have to join the Associates Program in those countries separately to be able to do this. For example – If you are a blogger in UK interested in generating links to Amazon.com (US) site, then you will first need to join the Amazon Associates Program in the US to be able to search for products on Amazon.com site. Now, you can add links for products from both US and UK in a single shortcode that will render ad depending upon visitor’s country under geo-targeted links feature.

このプラグインをどう使えば rel=”noreferrer” をサイトのアフィリエイトリンクから除去できますか ?

すべての投稿から rel=”noreferrer” を除去することができます。この機能は rel=“noopener” を除去するものではないことにご留意ください。またこの機能はAmazonサイトへのリンクにだけ影響します。この変更は設定のチェックボックスを外すことで即座に元の状態に戻すことができます。

リンクからの rel=”noreferrer” の除去に Amazon Product Advertising API の認証キーは必要ですか?

Amazon Product Advertising API の認証キーはすべての投稿から rel=“noreferrer” を除去する機能を使うのに必須ではありません。

What is geo-targeted links feature?

This feature enables Amazon Associates to create content customized for and better monetize their international traffic.

How will the geo-targeting feature benefit me?

The geo-targeting feature lets you monetize any traffic from other countries that was harder to monetize earlier. In accordance with our Operating Agreement, attribution to amazon links placed on your site does not hold if the end user has to switch to a different country specific website to complete his/her purchase. Similarly, if you send users to the correct country website, but with an incorrect country’s tracking id (not valid in that locale), then you will not get paid the affiliate fees for that sale. Many associates use complex home-grown systems, or unreliable 3rd party systems to overcome these limitations. These systems might have trust, reliability and pricing implications on your business. The geo-targeting feature in the WordPress plugin aims to reduce this complexity and give you more control on your monetization of global traffic.

How do I use the geo-targeting feature in the plugin?

As a part of the global settings in the plugin, you can configure which countries you want to work with, and the respective tracking id(s). You will also need to provide a set of PA-API credentials, which are connected to each of your respective country associate accounts. You will only need to do this once. As you create content, you will see a tabbed pane which lets you select product sets for each country that you have configured in the plugin. You should pick your default country as the first product set configured. The corresponding short code that is generated will have all the information required to render ads appropriately. When a user visits your site, we use the user’s location to determine which of the product sets to display to the user, and the corresponding ads are rendered. If the user is from a location that you haven’t configured, then your default product set is displayed to the user.

What will happen if the customer is coming from a country for which I have not configured the shortcode in geo-targeting feature?

The customer will be shown ads from the first country added in shortcode.

How can I see my reporting for geo-targeting feature?

You can see your earnings and other reports from the respective country Associates Portal under “Amazon Associates Link Builder” section.

評価

No support

I don’t see Associate ID and many other things apart from secret key and access key. Also can’t save it. No support, can’t post a question for help.

Could be so much better

On the face of it this plugin looks OK. But is has some missing functionality that make it a struggle to use :

  • You can’t edit a block once you’ve defined it. If you added 10 products to 6 different countries, and you want to add/remove 1 item you have to start from scratch.
  • If you do too many searches the API stops working. This happens to me if I try searching for a few products per minute.
  • You can’t do any filtering within the search results.
  • You can’t link to search results.

Love it!

This plugin is working fantastic for me. I was nervous to upload it because of some of the comments, but it works great! I’m going to put it on all of my sites. Just what I was looking for!
