Amazon Affiliate? March 10, 2001 11:47 PM   Subscribe

Quick cash for Matt, or his evil twin Howie: I just made a bunch of links to Amazon, and while doing so thought, “If only Metafilter was part of the Amazon affiliate
program. Then he might make a few pennies off my reccomendation.” Couldn’t hurt anything but your karma.

That's a pretty interesting method of money making, especially for communities and other public-supported sites. I would make links to online stores every time I mention a product if Matt had an affiliate account. Not Amazon, for various reasons, but if Amazon could incorporate that into their micropayment scheme, it'd probably end up being rather popular.

Matt's associate ID is haugheydotcom .

acutally, I cancelled my haugheydotcom amazon account a few months back. I never saw more than ten bucks a quarter so it wasn't worth it.

I'd much rather do an automatic URL re-writer that converts amazon links to givequick links.
