    Ok so I bought an Amazon affiliate plugin and it was garbage. Gonna see if I can get a refund later. But I have a few questions.

    I am running my Amazon Affiliate website on WordPress. I dislike coding sites from the ground up, so can you say WP is any good for this?

    Also, can you recommend a plugin or to do it manually? I am thinking about using WP Zon Builder. But, I hear sites that are using it are getting de-indexed cause Google see's it as automated spam or something. I kinda want to do my AA manually. But, every time I got to my AA account page, and search for a product, paste the HMTL code into the "text" post area. Its just a giant blob of brown. No text, pictures, images, description, or links. Can't seem to find the problem.

    Also, how would I go about doing it manually? How could I get the code for the products?

    How do you keep the price updating currently? I know people dont add the price, and have the buy button just link to Amazon. But, my niche is all about the best of the products for the price points. So, I would need them updating daily, or every couple hours.

    So, is WP good for AA, any plugins you can recommend (I really need one bad), how would I keep the site running manually, and how can I keep the prices current?

    Thank a ton!

    If you are into IM you cannot hate programming , you wont be able to live without it .
    there are several amazon plugins for wordpress , search for them .
    Thirdly to get latest prices from amazon I think you will have to make a scraper , for this i suggest scrapy + python

    Well I meant full on coding my own site. I do enjoy editing my WP themes, and tweaking themes. I will go ahead and rephrase that. I hate coding from the ground up.

    I hear that there are several, but no one gives any names? I mean, I dont know which ones are worth while, and which arent. I dont want to get slapped right when I get on top. Alright, I will defiantly look into that. I hear a lot of plugins do it automatic, yet again, I dont want to get slapped when I get up high.

    Thanks for that post. Can you let me know the plugin you might use?

    Not yet, I just started this. I just want to take precautions. But the niche I am in doesnt look half bad. I should be able to rank at a decent rate.

    Is this better than a lot of other plugins? I just keep reading on people getting slapped. I dont know if thats cause some people are dumbasses, or if these plugins are really getting people screwed over with footprints and whatnot.

    Yeah I was looking into it. I hear people saying it is fishy. But I am not to sure.
    I guess I just think to much. Not sure really where to go. Its like I am stuck in the middle.
