Amazon-Widget that AuTOMATICALLY Shows 6 - 9 Products ?

  1. Hello, looking for a very uncomplicated Amazon-widget, that AUTOMATICALLY offers 6 - 9 products based on the active posts content.

    I would like to show one block of offers right under each post.

    In the right sidebar, there could be
    - another block of offers or
    - an Amazon search field

    I don't know much about WordPress and Code and hope there is a simple solution. I have tried AmazonSimpleAdmin, but it seems to require that i manually select products.

    But i want it as convenient as possible – the products should come automatically based on post content – and as automatically as possible with every new post (it would be ok to past the same code each time into the content window, but i don't want to edit this code each time).

    I already am an Amazon affiliate (i have that affiliate name). FWIW, my blog (about books and movies) is here:
    http://hansblog.de/
    It currently has only 3 posts, but 700 more posts will follow quickly once the layout is arranged.

    Hope you have some experience. Thanks!

  2. Hello there,
    Affiliate marketing blogs are not allowed at WordPress.com. For full details, please see:
    http://support.wordpress.com/advertising/
    http://wordpress.com/types-of-blogs/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/affiliate-links/
    http://en.support.wordpress.com/suspended-blogs/
    http://en.wordpress.com/tos/

    You can sell only products you personally create or services that you personally provide. Only Blogs with the Business Bundle upgrade can equip their blogs for ecommerce.

    If you do not have that upgrade you can post a PayPal button http://en.support.wordpress.com/paypal/

    If you have a shopping cart set up for your own products or services elsewhere online you can create a custom menu and include a custom link to it in the menu.

    There are no restrictions on advertising if you hire a web host http://wordpress.org/hosting and setup a self-hosted WordPress.org blog instead of a WordPress.com blog, but there are some added responsibilities. Please see this link to learn about the differences:
    http://support.wordpress.com/com-vs-org/

    If you don't have a username account at WordPress.ORG click http://wordpress.org/support/ and register one on the top right hand corner of the page that opens, so you can post to the support forums there and receive advice from WordPress.ORG bloggers.

  3. Timethief, thanks!

    Well, i have bought my own web-domain http://hansblog.de/, that's where my blog is; but i use WordPress functions. So am i free to post any advertising there or not?

    Thanks for your hints!

  4. That is not a WordPress.COM site so our terms of service don't apply.

  5. Raincoaster, thanks!

    Still interested in ways to easily implement Amazon-widgets.

  6. Well, either prepare to surf the WordPress.org and Amazon forums or prepare to pay a consultant around $100 an hour.

    We cannot help you here. Unless you wish to pay me $100 an hour that is. That's what my WordPress.org clients pay me.
