Boost your Amazon Ad Revenue with Almost No Work

The Facts

Amazon Ads that are related to your content definitely get clicked more often.

Creating individual targeted ads or links is too much work and they expire or change.

Now you can simply add a bloggerkit keyword at the end of your content and voila relevant Amazon ads will appear. [Look at ads on the right]

The Solution

Bloggerkit will use Amazon Associate ID for 85% of the clickthrus and 15% are for their own ID.

Here are some sample keywords: bk_keywords: canon camera, nano (normally you would hide these from readers)

    CPM - cost per impression
    Every time an ad is displayed it counts as one impression. Rates are usually quoted for 1,000 impressions. Good choice for a busy site.

    CPC - cost per click
    Every time someone clicks, it counts as one clickthrough. Rates can be anywhere form a cent to a dollar with .10 to .17 being common.

    If you send a person to the site who then "signs" up or participates in some way specified by the ad sponsor then a "lead" is created.

    You receive a commission on sales. Amazon is an example of this type of program.

    When you join up with a program or "associate" yourself with it you are an "affiliate". Usually they handle getting the ads, keeping statistics and you just need to display the ads.
