    if I just use the Amazon modules or do I have to put in my Amazon Associates affiliate link? I've just been trying to put my link on there but Squidoo won't accept it as a link (I think it's cos it's waaaayyy too long!)

    Any help would be appreciated [​IMG]

    Thank you. xx

    Hi Red,

    I don't use Amazon links per se on my lenses. I use Amazon modules.

    However, you should be able to put an Amazon link of your own in a module.

    To learn how to shorten the viewable text within a link visit here (you can also do this with your forum link). Note that you'll have to use greater than and less than characters ( - HTML) in your Squidoo modules rather than BB brackets ([]):

    You can actually use both amazon module and amazon affiliate link in your lens and I think you will earn more with the affilaite link. However, the image in the amazon affiliate link will not show on the lens. I just don't know if there's any trick to do it.
