Amazon Introducing Widget Source

Amazon Associates announce the launch of Widget Source - a new way to create Amazon Widgets in-code.

Until now, the only way for you to create a widget was using the WYSIWYG widget editor. Instead of manually building a large number of widgets tailor-made for each page on your blog, with Widget Source you can programmatically place customized widgets throughout your blog using simple Javascript code.

Blogs with dynamic content can use Widget Source to create highly customized widgets on-the-fly. For example, a blog page author can use Widget Source to create a sidebar Carousel widget, and then dynamically change the list of products displayed in the widget depending on the contents of each blog page. Showcasing highly relevant products in attractive widget displays has shown to increase user engagement, resulting in higher conversion rates for you.

Widget Source also offers new ways to add and display products. For example, here is a Carousel that showcases search results for the phrase “New Video Game titles” from the Video Games category.
