Links direct to wrong keyword (5 posts)

    I am in Canada and my links are all Amazon.com links, so this plugin changes them for me to Amazon.ca.

    Of 26 links I have on one page, 4 of them use keywords that get the user no where near the TV series I've suggested. The page is about movies and TV series and it's all the TV ones that are affected, all the movie ones are fine.

    If you post a link to your site, I can look into it.

    Hi, this looks to be to do with the unique way Amazon structure streamed TV shows, it doesn't affect anything else.

    Although you are trying to link to, for example, Season 1 of Touch, what you actually link to is Season 1, Episode 1 of Touch: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0071UYQH0/ref=as_li_tf_il?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B0071UYQH0&linkCode=as2&tag=thinhapp0c-20

    So as far as Amazon's database is concerned, the title of this product (ie episode) is 'Tales of the Red Thread' so that's what it tries to search for on local stores.

    Unfortunately I can't see any easy way round this at present. I'll add it to my bug list though and will give it some more thought if I get time.

    Cheers

    Pete
