    Trying to find out what the easiest way to turn an Amazon product link into an affiliate link is.

    eg this link...
    Code:
    [URL]http://www.amazon.com/The-Blind-Side-Sandra-Bullock/dp/B002VECM6S/[/URL]
    I just read a page that says you just need to add your affiliate tag to the url like this...
    Code:
    [URL]http://www.amazon.com/The-Blind-Side-Sandra-Bullock/dp/B002VECM6S/[/URL]myaffiliatetag
    but the page is from 2010 so is this still true? Im having to go through their build a link thing which is a bit time consuming

    can anyone confirm this before i go and build a load of duff links?

    You would go 'link to this page', then 'text only', then copy the url in the 'a href' attribute (the url before the img src="...)
