Amazon Link Checker is a desktop tool that will crawl your Amazon affiliate website checking all your outbound links to Amazon for out of stock, unavailable, 404, missing affiliate tracking IDs and more. You simply enter your website's address and click "Start check" and it will check every webpage on your website for Amazon affiliate links with any issues.
Using advanced crawling technology you don't need to tell this tool about every page on your website you simply enter your homepage and it will go page to page searching for outbound links to Amazon. Once it finds one it can check for any of the following issues.
It should be fairly obvious why an affiliate would find this tool useful. If you were to go through your website page by page checking for all of the above issues on every link it would take you literally days at a time.
This tool takes about 3 seconds to setup then you simply set it running and come back once its done all the hard work for you. Helping you maximise your stores profit.
NOTE: If you are cloaking your links this tool will not find them. Outbound Amazon affiliate links must be pointing to an Amazon website or using the Amazon URL shortner.
This is the transcript from the video above, it needs tiding up a little as its from YouTube subs.
Hey guys, it's Jamie from SuperGrowth.com and in this video I'm going to show you how to use my Amazon link checker tool and what this tool basically does is, you point it at your Amazon affiliate website and it will crawl every page on your website checking all your Amazon affiliate links are not dead and are working so, for example, here we've got it running on gear patrol.com, a popular Amazon affiliate website, and you can see it's working its way through the pages doing various checks, so we'll just go through the checks on now. So we've got a check here that will basically notify you if a product's getting reviews, but average reviews that are under a certain threshold. So just for this test, I put you know, tell me about any product that I'm linking to that has a review of under 4 out 5 and you can see: we've picked up loads here. Check for out of stock, that's pretty simple, that'll check for any products you're linking to that are out of stock.
Check link for amazon affiliate code, so you might of forgotten to put your Amazon affiliate tracking ID in some of the URLs, you can check for that. Check for 404, so if you're linking to an Amazon page that is no longer there or perhaps it wasn't there to begin with, you just put a wrong link in it'll, also check for other web exceptions as well apart from 404. So there's something wrong with that page like on ours and the server or something and it's throwing a 500 internal server error or something like that, it'll pick that up as well. Finally check for items that are no longer available, so hopefully they should be all the checks that you need. That's basically it really, you can export the results as a CSV and actually before we stop much going to go through some of the settings.
So this is how fast you want to crawl the website that you're pointing at, so that's how many seconds you want to have as a delay between each concurrent crawl task. So I just normally have that at zero and then this is how many connections or how many crawls you want going on at once. If it's your own website, which I assume most of them using this on, you can have that fairly high. The only reason you wouldn't want it really really high is in case you fire too many requests at Amazon and they think you're scraping their website, and they ban your IP. So you want that somewhere between one and depending on your connection, maybe like five or something like that, but play around the results and you'll see when the amount of pages is crawling as fast and when it's slow. So hopefully, that's everything you need to know guys.
