  • Amazon Affiliate Links and Ad Blockers

    Posted by Dan Pike on March 24, 2021 at 3:08 pm

    I started playing around with adding Amazon Affiliate links with product recommendations on some blog posts. Anytime I access the blog from a device with a pop-up blocker I see that the entire Amazon product image/link is entirely removed. What are some ways to prevent these from disappearing for people with ad blockers?

    Most likely, it is HOW you are including those things on your site that’s the problem. If you just manually add affiliate links to your blog post (in the content), nothing will be blocked. However, if you embed Amazon ads, it will be blocked.

    Your best performance on this kind of thing is going to be by creating helpful content where your affiliate link naturally works into the content. But, if you’re embedding ads on a global basis on your posts, it doesn’t perform very well anyway.
