Geotargeting Kindle Links

I didn’t even know what GeoTargeting was until the other day.

In my eagerness to simply get shit out, I hadn’t looked underneath every virtual rock to see if there was a way to create a link to my books that took a person to a specific Amazon store based on their location. I thought you’d have to provide separate links for each region.

What an idiot.

Of course the nerds have figured out a way to overcome this. They always do. If I think ‘Hmmm, surely there should be a way to do such-and-such,’ usually there is. Usually somebody much smarter than me has already identified and solved that particular problem.

So kids, without further ado, if you want to GeoTarget the links to your Kindle releases, just pop the URL to the book’s page into this website:

https://affiliate-geo-target.com/amazon.html

It’ll generate a link below it and you can use that to direct your millions of readers to the correct site.

For example, here’s the link to Perfect Anastasia

http://a-fwd.com/asin-uk=B01MQPAKXB&asin-com=B01N255D4M

If you click it and you’re in Germany, it should direct you to Amazon.de. If you’re in France Amazon.fr

You get the idea.

Anyway, I thought that was a pretty neat trick, so I want to share it with you.

And now seeing as Perfect Anastasia‘s only a few days from release, why not pre-order yourself a copy?

It’s a surreal little tale of lust and addiction, laced with my black humour and all the usual crap I like to write about.

It’s good, I assure you. Winky emoticon.

  1. I use viewbook.at as it gives a nice, neat link. For instance, your link would look like – viewbook.at/PerfectAnastasia. Much more appealing. No doubt these sites make money from the use of affiliate links but so far as I’m concerned, if they make my life easier with their service then they’re welcome to it.
