Step-by-Step for Amazon Associates

    I’m a media professional and have a book review site on
    (Yes, I’ve read the Terms of Service, and determined that my desired use of Amazon Associates is allowed.)

    I’m new to HTML and to Amazon Associates.

    Have seen several forum posts with issues in using, and each has a different “be sure to” note (swap the img src for your own image URL; remove the iframes, etc.)

    Is there one single place with a step-by-step on how to use Associate links??

    I can’t get it to work at all – either linking an existing post’s image to Amazon’s product page with my Associate ID, or to insert a new image from Amazon with the link already in it. Basically, their Link Generator returns a box of HTML, and when I paste that into the Visual Editor, nothing happens, regardless of whether I select their “text + image”, “text only”, or “image only” options.

    Thanks for any help!

    The blog I need help with is



    Do not paste HTML code into the Visual editor. Paste it into the HTML editor only. And be aware that not all of their codes will work here.


    So, the answer to her question then would be, “No, there is no single place with a step-by-step on how to use Associate links.”



    @maryignatius – The site linked to your name is a blogspot blog. If you have a blog, we need a link to that, please.
