Amazon Omakase Links

With Omakase Links, you can now automatically display the products and content that visitors to the page are most likely to buy. Adding Omakase Links to your pages is easy. Use the Build Links tool to select the appearance and behavior of the ad, and then simply cut-and-paste the code into your template or Blog page. Your page will now display Omakase Links and after a short learning period, the ads will be optimized based on what the Associate has been successful with in the past; what that user has been interested in; and what the blog is about.

Because Omakase Links optimize on more than just the page itself, you may see a range of different products in your links but they will also see that the links learn what the visitors want. In fact, because Omakase Links aim to show the right product to the right person, each person visiting your blog may see different products.

You now have options for modifying the layout and adapting the ads to the look-and-feel of your blog. You can make the placements fit the blog and support their brand by selecting the background colors, link and border colors, and the use of text or images.

Some of them have been moved to Magical Links and the rest have moved to My Social Networks (if you wanna know what social networks I've joined and I'll add other useful links there). It doesn't mean that I don't accept exchange links anymore. You know that I love exchange link with others.

I hope you still find my blog interesting. Thank you!

One World One Reason. One world One Reason is exactly what it implies, we all live on one big overheated, overpopulated and slowly melting globe, but its still beautiful and offers us so much. Confused don't be! I have watched the flying fish bob the sea at sunset and the dolphins breaking the bow of the Calypso, I have dived in murky waters and swam in Antarctica,I have always been in the University of Life, played on foreign shores, and was saying "no guns" in the theatres of post war torn countries, so what now! Living every day with a wealth of knowledge and thinking what really has been accomplished. These pages are what's going on close by and on distant shores and trying to of course help good causes by spreading the word, so enjoy. Just keep in your minds that we live in One World and the One Reason is "Up to You". 30
