    Hello Pete

    Very nice plugin. I installed it a couple weeks ago and already got a few UK sales. However I am baffled because when I look at the links generated on my site via a UK web proxy (I am not in the UK), I see the links to amazon.co.uk but with my US Amazon affiliate ID. I have entered the UK Amazon ID in the wordpress settings page.

    For example here is a link it generates to the UK store: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Rio-Salon-Laser-Hair-Remover/dp/B000DIMOI0/?_encoding=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&keywords=Rio%20Salon%20Laser%20Hair%20Remover&linkCode=ur2&qid=1370955046&sr=8-1&tag=gnet08-20

    My UK ID which is set in the wordpress Amazon Affiliate Link Localizer settings window is gnet0e-21

    The odd thing when I log into the UK associates panel and look at my stats, I actually do have UK sales. Does the UK Amazon store work with both my UK and US Amazon IDs, and might I be doing something wrong in the settings?

    Hi,

    I've had various reports of false-negatives when using proxies - they seem to mess things up a bit. Can you post the URL of your site and I can test it out - I'm in the UK so can give a reliable test.

    Cheers

    Pete

    Hi Pete

    Very kind of you. The site is Gnet.org. If you spot anything else strange please feel free to share. I am getting 600 targeted hits a day on this page http://www.gnet.org/what-is-laser-hair-removal/ and barely any sales from it, whereas when we launched the page a few weeks ago we had the same amount of traffic but 1 or 2 sales a day. Sorry about the ugly hairy back. It's business, you know :)

    Hi, this is added in v1.9 which I have just uploaded.

    It turns out that for this product, it's title wasn't in the first 100kb of the HTML, which was all the script downloads for speed reasons. It's now ben tweaked to download more if it's not found.

    Cheers

    Pete
