Thanks for the guide. For Amazon links to books, will LGF’s affiliate code get plugged into the link automatically? I doubt that a purchase via a regular link, even if it is on this blog, will credit LGF with the sale.

Yes, the LGF affiliate code is automatically inserted into any Amazon URLs you post.

This is true, and tested. When Charles inserted the code I linked to my affiliate code to test and it was always replaced with Charles code, so don’t feel uncomfortable because the link leads to your “My amazon” page or anything because it will get changed at posting — link away.

re: #2 Charles

Does that carry over into Amazon UK, if I go to it from the bottom of the Amazon US page? I’m about to buy an expensive book there.

I would also suggest people tweet their pages. It makes a big difference in the number of clicks/views you’ll get from posting something. I only have 30 or so followers and don’t really follow twitter but it really does help get exposure.

re: #5 Killgore Trout

I’m glad you bright up Twitter because I have a question as I don’t do a lot of tweeting (I’m mostly a follower). With the Twitter account I use for LGF I have my tweets protected, and the only people following me are other lizards.

That being the case, is it still useful for me to retweet articles—i.e. since hashtags are automatically inserted, will people watching those categories be able to see my retweet even though they’re not on my followers list? I’m guessing probably not, but I wanted to ask someone who knows more…

I don’t know the answer to that since I don’t do private twitters, but you could easily test it. Do a tweet to #lgf, go to twitter and log out, flush the twitter cookies from your browser, then go back to twitter and search while logged out to see if it shows up under #lgf

Thanks, I’ll give that a try.

Update re Twitter hashtags: As I suspected, if your tweets are protected and you use hashtags your tweets remain protected—i.e. they will NOT show up in the hashtag category unless (presumably) the person watching is one of your approved followers. Soooo, I guess I’m going to unprotect my LGF tweets and see how things go.
