  • Good points. :) I am looking forward to the book you mentioned long time ago [though you may not have even started it ;)]. I am hoping to finish a few this year; “hoping” is always the keyword that comes to my mind for such a thing.

I found this on the PHP-Nuke community, and this guy over there give an impressive name for: The AmaZense AKA the Adsense style of Amazon Ads. It is highly contextual.

    My post was not specifically about increasing affiliate revenues – although selling your own books as an affiliate is mentioned as a way to further promote them. Instead I was trying to point out additional ways authors can become a part of the community to be sure their voice was a part of the conversation.
