Background - Why Write Another Keyword Tool For Amazon?
With all the Amazon Keyword Tools out there, why did I bother writing and publishing another one?
First and foremost - I like programming and creating things.
Secondly, though, this Amazon keyword generator does something that I haven’t been able to find on any of the other keyword tools - a link to the Amazon search results page for that keyword.
What’s so important about the search results? While keyword suggestions are nice (and an important part of this tool!) I wanted to see what the competition is for each of these keywords with one simple click. And what better place to see the competition than on Amazon itself!
I knew I could generate the appropriate URL after analysing Amazon’s search URLs.
I plan on using this mostly for my Merch By Amazon T-Shirt / Print-On-Demand business, but it can also be useful if you’re an Amazon Associate (aka Amazon Affiliate), Amazon FBA seller, or just sell on Amazon in general.
It uses a JSONP callback to Amazon’s API, which I learned from this post on Stackoverflow.
