    Hello BHW,
    I was reading some of the amazing threads by all of you lovely people on this forum and I have decided to try Amazon's Affiliate program. I have got a niche and a domain in mind and I'm ready to make the site, but I have a slight problem/question. I live in the UK and obviously use Amazon(dot)co(dot)uk, but all the guides I have thread say to use .com as the site to link to? I know that my traffic wont always be the same as me, but would you guys suggest linking to .com over .co.uk? Or is there some easy(ish?) method to send them to their local Amazon? Sorry for being a n00b, but any help would be great.
    Cheers,
    ~Kieran

    You can use a plugin like Easyazon that allows you to put links that geo-target users depending from where they visit your website. This way you can take comission from both .uk and .com customers and also from other countries where amazon affiliate program is available.
    If you don't want to take this approach I personally suggest you the .com . For me it converts better than .uk

    don't go for a .co.uk mate.. one of my biggest mistakes when I was starting out, you can't 'upscale' the co.uk while .com you can rank for uk easily
