How to add Amazon affiliate links to your posts in one step.
With an astonishing number of products available through Amazon.com it is quite likely that every blogger will find a related product to link in every blog post. On the other hand, this vast jungle of products can also be overwhelming for bloggers who naturally want to spend their time on writing post not searching for related products.
Unfortunately, Amazon did not offer any help to bloggers to easily create affiliate-links for its products. Every affiliate has to find related products using their keywords and then manually create the link into the articles. This is laborious and cumbersome exercise.
