    Recently I've been working on amazon affilate sites (US).
    Overall I've been getting a decent conversion (account average lies around 8%) but with my newest site I feel like there's a lot of revenue being missed since about 15% of my visitors are from the UK and the products I promote are actually quite popular there. It's not getting that much traffic yet but I want to get this fixed before I proceed.

    Here's the stats for my youngest site:

    So I wanted to ask, do you localize your affiliate links and do you recommend any wordpress plugins that do this automatically?
    I'm not interested in plugins like GeoRiot that take a percentage of your clicks.

    So far I've tried to get a plugin called 'Amazon Link' by Paul Stuttgard to work but it only works if you link to an ASIN number, not when you want to link to a search page. Localizing by ASIN will be difficult because often the exact products that are being promoted won't be available in both stores; so I'd rather just link to a product search.

    Thanks!

    You won`t share revenue with affiliate link localizer plugin. If you put correct amazon account info to this plugin you will get 100% of revenue. If you don`t add all accounts then the plugin owner gets the commission as i remeber correctly. As the owner told - "Disclosure: If you don't have an affiliate account with one of the Amazon countries and leave its setting blank, the script will use mine. It'll never overwrite your affiliate IDs though, so don't worry - you'll never lose any revenue."

    Cheers
