Build Simple Amazon Affiliate Text Links with just ASIN (10 digit ISBN) and Your Amazon Associate Tracking ID

Amazon Affiliate system does a great job presenting you a variety of ways to make associate affiliate links so that you can take credit of their products that you have referred to others. Today I messed around a little bit with their generators and finally come to a simple solution to generate affiliate links dynamically and simply with server side programming.

The simplest way to link to an Amazon product and take the referral credit is to use this link:

https://www.amazon.com/dp/0470633956?tag=maawe-20

Wherein 0029724600 is the ASIN (equally the 10-digit ISBN) of the product (books!) and maawe-20 is my amazon affiliate tracking ID.

Or this:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0470633956?tag=maawe-20

These would come quite handy when you build a book site with thousands of theme books, possibly on the same subject, and, you have a database of the books that contain the exact ISBN number for each of the book records. Now that you know amazon affiliate links can be built this way, itโ€™s nothing more than a breeze to just insert the 10-digit ISBN number as ASIN into the URL template with your own affiliate ID.

Is this link format still valid for people in North America, there is a an Amazon.ca but I prefer to buy from Amazon.com as they have a greater selection.

My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .net
from PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress
on a variety of websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform.
I have heard great things about blogengine.net.

Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it?

Any help would be really appreciated!
