There are a number of ways that you can post active affiliate links. The important thing to know is that any link to an Amazon site that includes your associate tag is an active affiliate link. When creating an Amazon Associates account, you’ll be asked to create a tag for yourself. It will be unique. You can find this tag at the top right of your account dashboard.
Manually create a link using your store tag.
To do this, you should know the shortest possible URL for a product: “https://amazon.com/dp/B018Y1Q71M/”. The product ID (highlighted in bold text) is called an ASIN, or Amazon Standard Item Number. This ASIN is for the YubiKey 4. Appending a store (or associate) tag to the URL is easy. Just add: “?tag=your_Associates_ID”. So the whole URL would like this: https://amazon.com/dp/B018Y1Q71M/?tag=your_Associates_ID
What can I do with this link?
Use the link any way that makes sense. You can share it in a blog, Facebook, or Twitter post. You can also create text links or link an image with it. Use affiliate links just as you would any other link.
Use Amazon’s multiple methods of creating and posting affiliate ads.
Login to your Amazon Associates account and paste a YubiKey ASIN into the ad generator. You have many options for ads.
