Prompt support for a rapidly evolving plugin...

Any plugin needs support and the author does that with a great attitude. Don't worry, Pro edition is worth your money.

great idea, but crap execution.

Really disappointed in this. It promised to be just what I needed but when I placed the short code all it gave me was a link to the developer's website.

Uh... yeah... No thank you.

Amazon Auto Links - fantastic plugin!!!
By , for WP 3.8

I looked at various other options before trying Amazon Auto Links which I can honestly say is definitely the best and the easiest to configure.
With a few clicks and by also adding your Amazon affiliate ID, you can very quickly have professional looking dynamic content displayed on your WordPress site; safe with the knowledge that your Amazon affiliate ID is already included in any link.
Try it out, you won't be disappointed - 5 stars from me!

The good got better with version 2
By , for WP 3.8

I have been using this plugin for some time and the new version just got better. I am very pleased with:

  • The search unit where you can specify the key phrase you are looking for. This is great if you have amazon affiliate sites based around a product or theme
  • the black list and white list functions. These are an alternative to the search unit, so that you can continue to use the category units and filter the incoming results by white/black list

I also like the idea that you can create your own templates and have played with this a bit, not enough to rate it though.
On the "warnings side", there are a few points to mention:

  • If you are upgrading from version 1.x, make sure you go through the conversion process. Unfortunately, the conversion does not migrate widgets so you have to recreate them. Not a big deal, but if you have a site that relies on widgets the upgrade causes them to be deleted.
  • If you are using the Yoast SEO plugin, make sure you review the settings. You should check "Titles & Metas"/"Post Types" where you'll find Amazon Auto Links as a new type. I prefer to check Noindex, Hide for these. By default they are indexed and this may not be what you want. On the same page you'll also see "Custom Post Type Archives" with the same structure; again I deindex these. On the next tab "Titles & Metas"/"Taxonomies" you will find the new type Label - same issue: by default they are indexed. Finally on the "XML Sitemap" page, you probably want to exclude "Amazon Auto Links" and exclude "Label" (amazon auto links tag).

Overall I am very happy with the plugin but it does require some attention to make the best use out of it.
