Amazon Web Services Macros
Make money from Amazon while embedding colorful product pictures within your wiki pages by creating simple links to Amazon books, items, product searches, and wishlists.
Amazon product pictures are a free way to add some spice and pizzazz to your website, and help you make money at the same time.
This Confluence plugin was written as my entry into Atlassian's 2007 Codegeist contest. I think every Confluence wiki should run this plugin, because it has features that are of benefit to every wiki:
- It makes it easy to link to products, pictures and descriptions, relevant to your content
- The source code serves as a great example of many plugin techniques
- Product pictures are a free bandwidth way to add color to your wiki pages
- It will help you make money with your website
- It generates content in a way that should help you grow your wiki web traffic
It's free and open source. If you are interested in learning to write plugins, I hope it will serve as a good example of how to accomplish some tricky things, like making your own system level administration configuration pages, storing your configuration information in the database, properly setting what the breadcrumbs bar shows, and how to grab the title of the page that the macro is being renderd from.
It will also help you make some money from your wiki. I've spent years researching the use of wikis to generate organic search traffic, as well as how to turn those visitors into easy money with Amazon and other affiliate programs.
Most websites, even if they aren't focused on making money, would like to have more visitors. The output of these macros is designed to help your wiki generate more organic (free) search engine traffic. It's well known that google likes quality content, and also to see that your web pages change regularly. So if you use these macros to display relevant products in combination with your own quality content, you should be well on your way to increasing the visitors to your wiki!
