A Journal about the experiences I have developing little applications in C#, Perl, Html and Javascript and talking about things new things that I use. Always Geeky; Always Nerdy; Always poor Grammer!

I am a Software Analyst Developer working in Southport, England but living in Liverpool. I develop mainly in C# and ASP.Net. I have been developing comercial software for several years now. I maintain this site (hosted at SwitchMedia UK) as a way of exploring new technologies (such as AJAX) and just generally talking about techie geek issues. This site is developed through a host of Perl scripts and a liberal use of Javascript. I enjoy experimenting with new technologies and anything that I make I host here.

Amazons Associate Scheme

You may have noticed that my blog has related Amazon books for a particular post. Each of these books are hooked up to my Amazon Associates account. The intention is to provide my readers with books that might interest them and also then to make a little bit of money from the referal to Amazon.

I have had one referal [Thank you to who ever that was, I appreciate it].

My Question is:
  1. Do you [the readers] like this information that is attached to each post?
  2. Would you consider a book that I have recommended?
  3. What would make you more likely to buy the book?
  4. Is it clear that there is a seperation between the UK Amazon site and the US Amazon site?
I am asking this, because one of the Stats that I have seen recently that has been published is that 4% of visitors to a site would 6% of the time buy a product.

During the beta, visitors to Associate sites who viewed a product preview
clicked through to Amazon.com over 4% of the time; those clicks resulted in a
purchase nearly 6% of the time

Through deduction then, this means that 0.24% of visitors will buy a product.

Is this really worth it, for the amount of Advertising Amazon will receive from me.
