Amazon Context Links

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

Amazon has launched Context Links Beta program. The idea is that you insert a little Amazon script into your pages and when the page is open in a browser the script identifies words and phrases it thinks are relevant and makes them links to whatever Amazon products.

I enabled the script on my blog's frontpage (pinky double underlined links) to see how relevant it is and here are the results:

  1. "WHATWG" - Designing with Web Standards (2nd Edition) by Jeffrey Zeldman
  2. "Google Apps" - "Google Maps Hacks" by Rich Gibson
  3. "Google Reader" - Google for Dummies by Brad Hill
  4. "Fuck Windows" - "Death is a Window by E.C. Blount
  5. "The Pragmatic Programmer's" - Der Pragmatische Programmierer. by Andrew Hunt

Well, sure there are lots of opportunities for improving relevance, but still not bad at all for beta

The redirect for "Fuck Windows" is really relevant :)
