This site has been somewhat of a trailblazing effort in terms of generating revenue from a weblog via广告并通过付款会员资格和T恤销售For absolutely no good reason, however, I’ve never attempted to make some scratch via the most common means for weblogs: affiliate links.
从昨天开始，改变了You will now notice in the top right corner of this web page a small text link to Amazon.comFor any purchases made after following this link, Amazon pays me a small referral bonusIt’s worth noting that the referral bonuses come out of Amazon’s end, not yours — you pay Amazon’s regular prices, and Amazon sends a portion (generally around 5 percent) to me.
International readers, take note: I’ve joined the associates programs at Amazon.ca and Amazon.co.uk as well使用我的弹出菜单首选项页面, you can choose which store will be linked to when you visit 万博manbetx贴吧The preferences form also allows you to turn the Amazon links off, if you choose.
Assuming this endeavor is at least mildly successful, I’ll keep the links around in some shape or formThe top-right placement in the banner, however, is something that will only be used for the remainder of the holiday shopping season.
So, here’s the idea: if you’re going to purchase holiday gifts at Amazon and you’d like to support 万博manbetx贴吧, please consider using these links to get to Amazon’s web siteAfter clicking, you’ll proceed to Amazon’s home page, and all purchases you make in the subsequent 24 hours will generate referral bonuses that benefit 万博manbetx贴吧.
A 5 percent cut on the price of a book might not seem like much, but I’m hopeful it might add up in the aggregate（说到书，山谷的革命, Andy Hertzfeld’s new hardcover on the creation of the original Macintosh, is now available for purchase.)
更有趣的是，亚马逊现在不仅仅是一家书店Point of fact, they’re a terrific Apple reseller — selling a full line of Macs and iPods, at or below Apple’s own prices(Unfortunately, Amazon.ca doesn’t sell Apple hardware, but Amazon.co.uk does.) Sometimes, Amazon’s prices are显著Apple的下方E.g., at this writing, the U.SAmazon store has the latest iPod models on sale at 5 percent below Apple’s prices:
Or, with Mac hardware, mail-in rebates can save you $100 on iBooks and iMacs这带来了价格全新的12英寸iBook(1.2 GHz G4, 256 MB RAM, built-in AirPort Extreme, etc.) to only $899Big-spenders get a $150 rebate on双2.5 GHz PowerMac。
Even though Amazon caps the affiliate bonus at $25 on computer hardware purchases, it’s easy to see how this might add up.
