With the holidays approaching it makes sense to show you how to create personalized SmartLink Widgets for your Amazon Wish List as they’re the modern letter to Santa.
Automatic SmartLinks Widgets are easy to create, simple to install and are updated automatically because they’re built with RSS feeds. Each item in the widget includes a SmartLink that pulls together the best information for the item from around the web directly to your site and all links to Amazon, Google, and Ebay can be monetized through your affiliate IDs.
To set up a SmartLink Widget for your Amazon Wish Llist start by heading over to our Automatic SmartLink Widget page (you’ll find over 50 top lists from favorite sites available as widgets).
Select the Amazon drop-down list and select “Your Wish List.” A box will appear prompting you to enter in your Amazon email address. Do that and then click “GO”.
This will create your Amazon Wish List SmartLink Widget. Now, simply click on the “Grab This Widget” to bring up the configuration screen that will allow you to customize the widget and install it on your site.
In the configuration screen there’s an entire range of layout options and the widget can be displayed as a list, a grid, or a badge. There’s a number of template colours available and the width is adjustable to customize it perfectly for your sidebar. You can also enter your Amazon, Google, and Ebay affiliates by clicking on “Show Affiliate Options”
While you can limit the number of items displayed, visitors can also click the “All” button on the widget to view your entire Wish List.
To install the widget on your Blogger or Typepad account just select the 1-click install option. For all other platforms copy and paste the single line of code.
