    I had someone built an amazon affiliate site for me.
    How do I check if my affiliate link is working properly...?

    One way is by checking if your affiliate urls contain:

    Code:
    tag=[your affiliate tag]

    also check it multiple times.
    so you can be sure he didn't add some codes to randomize between your id and his.

    Check what tracking id you are using on the site.
    For .com it's the name you are entered at Amazon ending with -20.

    Click on one of the links to get to Amazon.
    Check the url in the address bar for your tracking ID.
