10 Places for Affiliate Links in Amazon Affiliate Sites

affiliate links we're gonna look at ten places you could put affiliate links for Amazon affiliate niche sites I'm gonna try to show you specific places we're like really good web sites are using these as much as I can so I can't show every single example but I'll do as many as I can so that you can see like in real life where people are putting links my name is Doug Cunnington and the founder of niche site project I talked about Amazon affiliate marketing productivity and project management before we dive in I want to mention that I do full tear downs for many of the sites so I'll place links to those videos so you can see the tear downs for the various sites we're gonna take a look at I look at different products and it kind of gives you an overview of you know different things that are good and or bad for different sites so without further ado let's take a look at the ten places you could put affiliate links for your Amazon affiliate site number one we're gonna look at the wire cutter in the first place you can put affiliate links is in your first paragraph so the wire cutter is a New York Times Company as you can see at the top this is one of the sites that I've reviewed a couple times so thing that we see right off the bat is I just arbitrarily chose this review the best sheets and you see they have not one but two affiliate links right here and that's just in the first paragraph so that is a great place to catch the people that are in a hurry now sure this is a long review many many thousands of words but some people just want to see the top couple picks and they don't want to read the whole thing so the first paragraph it's a great way to serve those visitors number two is captions so we're gonna take a look again same review just further down the page we can see that the wire cutter has some captions they have basically a featured product box here it's their own custom box you could come up with your own if you want to but basically they have a text link we can sort of think of this as a caption and this is an affiliate link now quick note this is an aside not part of the caption links but this button is a link the image is a link so just in this featured called out area they have you know captions they have different colors they have a blue box red text buttons there's many things calling things out here there's many areas to call things out here but I think captions are underutilized and personally I don't use buttons but I often will put an affiliate link in the caption not unlike the wire cutter number 3 we're gonna jump over to another site called thank your skin and again this is another site I've reviewed so be sure to check out the link where I go deep and as you can imagine you know check out this beautiful shiny head I don't use shampoo so I thought it'd be funny to look at the best shampoo article here and look at tables so there are a couple things as we scroll down that we could point out here so you can put in your table affiliate links and this is a great area to put affiliate links now these specific areas that jumps down to you know the different posts and stuff but basically this table is a way to put an affiliate link so you could place a button if you want to to check the price of course this is a great way to entice someone to go click this link get cookie go over to Amazon because there's intrigue there right you want to know there's curiosity you want to know how much it cost additionally another cool thing here is they don't put an image right so thank your skin doesn't put an image here and that means that you may be curious on what it looks like so they don't do this here but number 4 the fourth tip is if you place the column in here or even in the awards section if you just had a little call to action that says see image on Amazon again it serves the curious visitor that wants to know what it looks like sure Shampoo it's probably in a bottle who really cares what it looks like but if it's something else like sheets or a pair of shoes or a digital camera or something people care what it looks like and they want to see the image so if you put a call to action that serves that it's a great way to make someone click that link and really be curing about what it looks like number five images so we're gonna look at football snack helmets again a very popular review this is actually a public case study so if you want more information on it be sure to check out the full tear down and potentially some more information about this site we'll take a look at the Cleveland Brown snack helmet which is my wife's favorite team you know it's just a family team that they follow so as we scroll down this link or that sorry this image over here isn't a affiliate link but they do have this feature box down here this is an affiliate link even though the image is cut off that is a place you can put an affiliate link now me personally I don't usually make an image the affiliate link but it is an option some people click them number six is to place a call to action sort of at the end or beginning of a section that is what this is again on the cleveland browns snack helmet review page this is a call to action get your cleveland browns snack helmet on amazon and it's in a larger font it's i would maybe make it a different color to make it stand out a little bit more but it's larger and you could tell that it's a link so that's a great way to place the affiliate link number seven is to place your affiliate links in the sidebar so this is another really best-in-class type site outdoor gear lab here and you will see a specific review for the mountain hardwear cloud seeker jacket there are affiliate links in the sidebar here so they have a price listed for different affiliate programs that they're part of and you can see the their affiliate links so you can compare the prices take a look they obviously have an api or some sort of programmatic way to pull the pricing here to adhere to the Terms of Service for the different programs but the sidebar is a great way to you know place it especially you know this is a pretty long review thousands and thousands of words but maybe you're just interested in seeing the best price and you can get to it quickly right here number eight is an end post call-to-action or widget so again we're on outdoor gear lab or on a different jacket but this specific review I won't scroll through the whole thing basically there are not many affiliate links on these reviews for specific products there's a link in the sidebar like I was showing you before but they don't put too many affiliate links and what they do instead is they have this box at the bottom and you could check out again different retailers and this is an affiliate link here you could also like go using this button to see it right quick call to action you could place your affiliate links at the end of the post the advantage is you know if someone read this multiple thousand word post on a specific jacket or whatever the product is you know they're really interested in it so if they make it all the way down here they're probably interested in buying the product somewhere great place to put it I would maybe put a couple other affiliate links like in the places were mentioning such as you know at the end of a section just to give people if they're sold on it they can get over to it easier these are really long reviews so I think outdoor gear lab knows what they're doing they have an early call to action up at the top like I was showing and then they have one at the bottom to number nine is back to football snack helmets and they are utilizing this right here so this is pretty cool this is an Amazon native and you can see it's really well formatted they're using you know the stock image from Amazon the price is listed you can see if it's prime or not and you also see the number of reviews so all this information is pulled through an ad system that's created by Amazon so you know it's adhering to all the policies with Amazon Associates that's one of the big fears that people have that they are listing the price and they're not supposed to or using an image that they're not supposed to or listing the number of reviews or something like that this takes care of it and you can see ads by Amazon right here you can tell it's a native ad and these are responsive they work really well you always know that you not violating any Terms of Service these little pieces of code these little ad segments that you could put in here you could place those anywhere you want and they're responsive and look good on a mobile device or an iPad or a tablet or whatever so you know they're gonna look alright no matter what the person is viewing the webpage on number ten is something I couldn't find anywhere so let's go to like big screen again number ten is a rarely used technique but super effective to get a high click-through rate you put a call to action somewhere in your review that says see real reviews on Amazon and you can link directly to the Amazon review page for that product and that's one of the huge values with Amazon is you could actually see like reviews from actual owners verified owners too so that's a very powerful call-to-action so I'd like to put this in my user impression section and you know you can't quote or copy the information from Amazon reviews but you can link to it and that's a again a great call to action I couldn't find it anywhere specifically on websites to show you but that's a great way to get people over really high click-through rate on those kind of links and it's a great way to add an affiliate link to your post again my name is Doug Huntington if you're
