Amazon.com has launched the beta of their Context Links for affiliates. According to Amazon.com, “context Links automatically identify and link relevant phrases within your page content to Amazon products, unlocking new ad inventory and saving you the time from having to manually create links.”
Context Links require a short piece of code embedded on your pages, which will then identify and link contextually relevant phrases within your content to Amazon.com products.
If you enable the preview functionality, your site visitors will see a preview of an Amazon.com product relevant to the phrase selected. Clicking on the link will send your site visitors to the product detail page on Amazon.com, and you will earn referral fees just as you would with any link you hand-picked.
Setting up Context Links for your website is quick and easy. Just go to Amazon.com Associates Central. click on Build Links and then Context Links. It’s pretty intuitive from there.
So long as this doesn’t slow down the load time on a site, I think it looks very promising.
