Hello, do you know any good/useful plugin,theme for listing amazon products?
wordpress amazon associate is the best plugin of all the free ones. The plugin supports geo based marketplace and is widget based. Not sure of wordpress amazon themes.
Any theme and any plugin which is able to syndicate the RSS feeds. E.g.: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/cybersyn/
Thanks guys, will try those plugins.
thank you very much, you are the best.
BTW, here is how to build the Amazon feeds:
In general the Amazon's tag feed URL's have a very simple format:
The product category based feed URL's look like this:
keyword is the product tag (e.g. "sci-fi", "blu-ray" etc);
product is the product category (e.g. "jewelry", "software", "3887251" etc);
amazon_tag is your Amazon Associate tag which identifies you as an Amazon reseller. It's used by Amazon to track your sales.
These feeds are delivered in the standard RSS 2.0 format, so you can simple syndicate to your blog "as they are". E.g.: http://www.amazon.com/rss/bestsellers/3600?tag=your_associate-tag. Find more info on Amazon RSS feeds at the Amazon Mashups forum.
Hint: Don't make a standard Amazon shop which looks like 10000000 others - it won't fly. Make it really unique. E.g. mix the Amazon products with relative articles like here, add embedded videos, generate "user comments" etc. Be creative!
Thanks this is useful info for me
I will try this, Thanks cyber seo. So it will make new posts with every product on one post?
I've had some luck with Amaniche and Associate-O-Matic
Yes it will. These Amazon RSS feeds will be working with ANY freeware RSS syndicator. You don't need to spend a dime to use them.
thanks for that +rep for your software man
I have been trying to get cybersyn to pull you tube videos i am using this rss
I know this is right cos it works in google reader, but in cybersyn it says no feed is available, how to get youtube autoblogged?
also (with the amazom feed) I don't get any of the product details in the post, only a title
Which version of CyberSyn do you use? I've just tried to syndicate your feed and haven't noticed any problems:
I got it working by typing in the url from that screenshot, how did you generate that?
can I make the videos embedded or is that only in the paid version
The standard youtube feeds do not contain embeddable content, so the actual videos can't be syndicated by CyberSyn. There are many premium, professional and even freeware plugins that can do it. E.g.: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/blogging/455026-wordpress-youtube-mass-embedder-free.html
