    Anyone have any Free Amazon Store Scripts

    Hi,

    I am looking for a free Amazon Store Script. I got one from Dawg that was great, but it quit working because it called from the designer site. Their site is NO more and the script quit working

    Must be simple and easy to use.

    Simple to install.

    And if it works with an A store that would be even better.

    If you find another good one, let me know.
    So far, the only solution is to use Amazon's A-Store.

    And the paid scripts are overpriced and have some limitations.

    Google has aggressively gone after Amazon affiliate sites. If it uses the XML feed, it gets heavily penalized or banned (yes, banned) pretty quickly due to the duplicate content. Scrambling or spinning the content doesn't work. An A-Store can work if you add your own unique content to each page; otherwise, you do not have any content on the page due to the iframe.

    The only viable solution for Amazon is to write your own unique content, which defeats the purpose for the scripts. You also need to hide the Amazon affiliate links using JavaScript. Google is penalizing sites with Amazon affiliate links that it can read. A few pages with links won't hurt you, but if you have a product on each page with an Amazon affiliate link, the site will be duck soup very quickly.

    Passing the links through a script that is blocked in the robots.txt file, as Matt Cutts recommended, does not work. Google will still penalize the site, even if it has 100% unique hand-written content.

    I tried several scripts over the years. The best one that I found was a freebie that several of us heavily modified. That was the Freekrai.net script. I don't think it is available any more, but it was the easiest to modify if you are a PHP developer. The nicest part is that it didn't need a database. All product data was real time. We evaded Google's penalties for quite a while by scrambling the content, but when Panda came along all the various sites that the group put together were wacked hard. None of them survived, even though each used a different method to cover the Amazon affiliate tracks.

    Just my 2 cents worth regarding Amazon scripts. You have been warned.

    Hi,

    Well I got to have something on that site that will earn some money. I has been selling Amazon lingerie form the time it was started.

    I am just saying that selling individual items with unique content that you wrote and selling items using an Amazon store script are two different things. At one time I was doing $3,000 to $4,000 in commissions per month selling Amazon products with store scripts. I have not yet seen anyone beat Google's attacks on Amazon store sites. However, I have even seen Google assault sites with 100% unique content. The only common factor is an Amazon affiliate link on each page. A few affiliate links won't hurt you, but too many may get your site flagged. I have followed Google's rules and Matt Cutts' advice and the site still got wacked. Several competitors that I watched who also had squeaky clean sites also disappeared from search results.

    Tread carefully. I have seen overwhelming evidence that Google actively penalizes affiliate stores, especially Amazon affiliate stores. I have not seen an Amazon affiliate store show up in a top 50 position in Google search results for at least 2 or 3 years.

    The thing about amazon sites and amazon links?
    I really believe most people just bypass affiliate links, etc.
    And go straight to amazon.

    Highly modified, as geeks are running that.
    The blog itself is nothing.

    Hi,

    But the index page is great I like how you can just scroll forever, and it loads as you scroll. Nice way to have amazon links and look at how the site is indexed with google. They are doing something right.

    That site is an interesting find. I think I saw that site a couple of years ago. It is a mix of video, Amazon products, Etsy products and short tech articles. And they are direct linking to Amazon with a nofollow attribute. It is also a list building site. Click on the little heart icons under the products.

    The real question is whether or not they get any Google traffic. Sami, did you find it in search results? if so, what were you searching for.

    dawg is right. It is is a highly customized site, but it is built on WordPress.
