    Hey guys,
    I'm already on the 2nd page for a long tail keyword to my website without any backlinks at all for Google.co.uk

    I just fixed on site SEO and added a silo structure to my site

    Right now I added a geo tag to all my Amazon links so it redirects buyers to their countries version of Amazon.

    I only have UK and US links on my site.

    Since I'm from the UK, when I click on the link to check it out, it goes to a page that says this:

    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Looking for something?
    We're sorry. The Web address you entered is not a functioning page on our site.

    [​IMG] Go to Amazon.co.uk's Home Page

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    The US version links are working fine so no fear of losing commissions from there but I want to monetise the UK version too. Will this affect my commissions if they click the link to go on the home page?

    I don't why you are getting that. One plugin that work magic is the easy azon.
    About losing commission, i don't know, an expert on this can give us an answer. Silo+quality SEO works wonders for me.
    Good luck.

    Since they are not heading to the proper page in UK version that means your geo redirect is wrong. I cant say if you will lose commissions or not since the visitor will be landing to amazon.co.uk from your link only so I think 24 hour cookie will work for you links.

    But still you will lose some commissions since if the visitor wont land to a proper product page then his intentions in purchasing product will get pulled off and he might check other sites for proper link of product (Just my thoughts for a human behavior)
