I don’t know if there is already an easy way to do this that I just don’t know about, or what…but it sure seems like there should be.  I always find it a pain in the ass to create Amazon Associates links – I’ve always had to go to their website, click “Build Links”, click “Text Links’, paste in the URL to the product page, etc.  Annoying.  The URL isn’t that difficult to build, so I just created a little bookmarklet that will do it for me.  You can use it with your own Amazon Associates tag if you like.  Just go to AWSLink, type in your Associates tag, click “Generate Bookmarklet”, and drag the link into your bookmarks.  Then when you’re on an Amazon product page you’d like to link to, just click the bookmarklet and grab the URL.

I feel your pain, because I have exactly the same problem! However, everywhere I look (Amazon page, your site, even AWSlink.com) there's no pointer to where I can create this bookmarklet. Is there some URI on the Amazon site I overlooked?

Oops, thanks Arjan! It helps if I link to AWSLink, huh? :) Go to www.textbox1.com/apps/AWSLink/ (link added in the post above).

Wow, thanks a lot for pointing me in the direction of this tool. I am currently creating an Amazon review site and this has made my life so much easier. They seriously need to change the name of their quick links to snore links.

Great stuff. Cheers.
