Anyone else use the WP plugin from AvantLink? It’s no longer working. The IFRAME that shows up in the WYSIWYG editor is just a blank IFRAME. Looks like there may be some error in the plugin itself.
If you don’t use the WP plugin, what’s another (relatively) easy way to add affiliate links via Keyword search?
The ALE requires existing links to partners, which is one option I suppose, but still requires manually finding the actual partner links and inserting those in the content. That’s only a marginal improvement over using the Custom Link Builder via AvantLink’s Tools.
I’m tinkering with their API, and might be able to cobble some PHP together. For example, I’ve configured a request to return 3 matching items & retailer name, and it returns me some XML:
we just hyper link all the backcountry.com and rei.com links etc etc.. I made sure that each review article had 1 outbound link which was an ALE. So we would link direct to the product and let AvantLink handle the rest.
AS I typed that last sentence it made me go hmm, is AvantLink really reporting all sales and clicks? Hopefully 🙂
But yeah the ALE has worked well for me. We don’t use there plugins.
