In my post, I show you how to add Amazon native ads to your WordPress website.
The Amazon affiliate program is free to join. Once you are a member, you get HTML code to embed in your website to generate ads. Helping you monetize your blog.
Native ads generate advertisements for products on Amazon based on the keywords in your blog post.
Let me show you how to add native ads to your WordPress website, step by step.
Step One – Sign In To Your Amazon Affiliate Account
First, go to Amazon Associates Central, and log in to your affiliate account.
Enter your login details and select ‘Sign-In’.
Step Two – Select Native Shopping Ads
On your associate’s dashboard, hover your mouse over ‘Product Linking’. Select ‘Native Shopping Ads’ from the menu.
Step Three – Select The Native Ad Type
There are three types of native ads, ‘Recommendation Ads’, ‘SearchAds’, and ‘Custom Ads’.
Select the tab of the native ad you want to display on your website.
Recommendations ads generate ads based on categories and keywords. This option allows you to display ads that relate to the content of your blog post.
To create a recommendation ad, select the ‘Recommendation Ads’ tab.
Next, select the ‘Create Recommendation Ads’ link.
First, create an ad name. Should you plan to create multiple ads, use titles that help you remember where you placed them on your blog. The data will help you monitor performance.
Next, if you have more than one affiliate ID, ensure you select the correct one from the list. You also have the option of creating a new tracking ID.
There are three ways to display ads on your website, ‘Grid, List, and Strip’. You can preview each format on the right.
The preview is for desktops. For a mobile preview, select the ‘Click Here For Mobile Preview’ link.
Next, select the product categories you want the ad to use. The box below shows your chosen categories.
As a backup, you can also use selected keywords for Amazon to use to find products.
Finally, save and create your ad.
Copy your ad code and embed it into your website.
Search ads allow you to add a search feature for Amazon products.
To create a search ad, select the ‘Search Ad’ tab.
Next, select the ‘Create Search Ads’ link.
First, select the tracking ID.
Then, select how you want to display the ad. Choose ‘Grid, List, or Strip’.
Next, select the default search term you want to appear in the search box.
You can edit the title of the ad.
Finally, copy the ad and embed it into your website.
Custom ads allow you to choose products from Amazon to display.
Select the ‘Custom Ads’ tab.
First, should you have more than one affiliate ID, select the correct ID from the list.
Next, select the ad format. The preview on the right shows you how the ad looks on a desktop. For a mobile preview, click on the ‘Click Here For Mobile Preview’.
Next, search for products from Amazon. Enter a keyword, then click on the ‘Add’ link for products you want to display in the ad. The minimum is four products.
Should you change your mind about the products selected, click on the ‘Delete’ link to remove them from your list.
The default title for the ad display is ‘My Amazon Picks’. You can change that with the ‘Edit Title’ option.
Finally, copy the ad code and embed it into your blog post.
How To Add Native Ads To Your WordPress Website
After copying your native ad code, return to your WordPress website post. Choose where you want to display your ad and create a new block.
You create a new block by selecting the plus icon.
Type ‘html’ and select the ‘Custom HTML’ block.
Another way to create a new block is to type ‘/’ after hitting enter.
Then type ‘html’. Select the ‘Custom HTML’ block.
Now you have a block to paste your code.
Paste the ad code from Amazon into this block.
Select the ‘Preview’ link to view your ad.
Now you have native ads on your WordPress website.
To make your updates live, select the ‘Publish’ or ‘Update’ link.
Adding Amazon native ads to your website is an excellent way to monetize your blog.
There are three native ads types. Recommendation ads, search ads, and custom ads.
Recommendation ads use categories and keywords you set. Search ads have a search function in the ad for your visitor to find products on Amazon from your website. Custom ads show products you pre-selected from Amazon.
Once you have set up your ad, copy the ad code and paste it into your blog post.
Create a ‘Custom HTML’ block in your blog content to embed the ad code.
Publish or update your post to start showing ads.
