Affiliate Link Localization Now Live for Amazon Saudi Arabia, Singapore, and Sweden

Just in time for Black Friday / Cyber Monday, we are excited to announce that our patented product link localization technology has been enhanced to now support Amazon Singapore (amazon.sg), Amazon Saudia Arabia (amazon.sa), Amazon Sweden (amazon.se), and the related Amazon affiliate programs

What this means for you (creators, YouTubers/studios, authors/publishers, musicians/labels, affiliate publishers, influencers, gamers, and directors/VPs of Commerce) is that your Amazon links, managed through Geniuslink, are even smarter and more powerful. If you are starting with an Amazon.com link it means your clicks from Sweden, Singapore, and Saudia Arabia will generate more conversions as each shopper is taken to the correct product in their local Amazon storefronts.

BestAzon: How To Fix Your Broken Links

Update: Approximately 12 days after first being reported, the author of the BestAzon WP plugin closed the open WP support tickets stating the issue has been resolved. We now see the demo links on their site working however, there are still ongoing complaints from BestAzon WP plugin users that the links aren’t working.

Recently we’ve been contacted by a growing number of niche and authority site publishers that were previously using the competing service BestAzon, but have found their Amazon affiliate links no longer work, and are looking for help ensuring their sites are fully functioning for the holidays.  

From some quick research, we’ve confirmed there now appears to be something fundamentally broken with BestAzon’s service for Amazon affiliate links and we wanted to share a quick blog post about what we know and some advice for those affiliate publishers that are impacted.  

If you’ve been adversely impacted by BestAzon’s CloudFront 504 error and your Amazon affiliate links no longer work, feel free to reach out directly or jump below to read about how to get your links fixed ASAP.
