Amazon has improved their Associates  OCT 01 2001

Amazon has improved their Associates service once again (I detailed the last improvement back in May). When they first rolled out Amazon Recommends, the only list you could make was one based upon an associate's sales history, a highly useful list, but one that didn't quite cover all the bases. Now Amazon lets you build lists based upon bestsellers and keywords. Here are a few lists I whipped up quickly to illustrate the utility of the new service.

(You still can't easily brand the thing (it would stick out like a sore thumb in the sidebar of my site), which is annoying but probably never going to change.)

(Also, several of the lists I set up this weekend appear to be broken now. Looks like they may be having some problems with the system. Just ignore the busted ones for now.)
