Amazon Auto Links
[resolved] Link Type Reports with Javascript Off (3 posts)

    Hi,
    Thank you for this wonderful plugin. I have a question and a feature proposal.
    My understanding is that when I use cloaking no Javascript is used for the links. When I look at Amazon->Reports->Link Type Report I can see the clicks for Basic Display Detail Page, but I can not see the number of impressions. This is the expected behavior as no JS was executed. However, without cloaking, and with the inclusion of the script code provided by amazon before the closing body tag, I was expecting to see impression counts under Basic Display Detail Page (Product Preview Enhanced). Is this because the links by the plugin are generated by Amazon Web Services? Asking the question differently, is there any way I can use the product preview feature and count impressions for amazon links using the plugin?
    Regarding the feature request, the black list management functions are great. I would also like to have a white list management feature so that only products having a certain phrase in titles or descriptions are displayed. Please let me know your considerations on this.
    Many thanks
    TB

    Hi,

    Are you comfortable with editing the theme? If so, you may try inserting the following code into your footer where YOUR-TAG-HERE should be replaced with your associate ID.

    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/s/impression-counter?tag=YOUR-TAG-HERE&o=1"></script>
    <noscript><img src="http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/s/noscript?tag=YOUR-TAG-HERE" alt="" /></noscript>

    This page has some information. I cannot guarantee this works but it's worth trying.

    As for the whitelist, I added it to the to-do list. Thanks for the suggestion. Currently I've been working on some other projects and have not found the time for this plugin. Though I would like to enhance some functionality and implement new features such as fetching product links with keyword search, ASIN, tag, and author etc.

    If you are hurry, shoot me an e-mail. I'll tell you my suggestion then.

    Thank you very much for your prompt reply. I made the modification and also included the product preview code. So it looks like this:

    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/s/impression-counter?tag=MY-TAG-HERE&o=1"></script>
    <noscript><img src="http://ir-na.amazon-adsystem.com/s/noscript?tag=MY-TAG-HERE" alt="" /></noscript>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="http://wms-na.amazon-adsystem.com/20070822/US/js/link-enhancer-common.js?tag=MY-TAG-HERE">
    </script>
    <noscript>
    <img src="http://wms-na.amazon-adsystem.com/20070822/US/img/noscript.gif?tag=MY-TAG-HERE" alt="" />
    </noscript>

    An important note is that I had to turn off the Minify options in W3 Total Cache for this to work. I don't know if this is related to this plugin, the theme or other plugins.
    I would love to shoot you an email but could not find where to send it :(
    I am marking this as resolved and would be grateful if you could tell me where to send you an email.
    Many thanks again
    TB
