How to place Amazon ads on your site or blog

To place ads for Amazon on your site or blog, you have to register to be an Amazon Associate. The process is similar to registering for Google AdSense, you register on their site, promise not to do anything bad, give them time to check you out, and then you are approved. Once you are approved you can add Amazon widgets to your Google blog, or create lots of different kinds of ads for your web pages. On your blog it's a "click and build" thing, with lots of options, or you copy the javascript and paste it into your HTML for your web pages.

Right now, I'm still in the process of learning about how all of this works, like a lot of people are, but I'm pretty sure Amazon is better than Google. Amazon isn't paying for some vague "page impressions" or "clicks", they are paying you if they make a sale, and you helped. That seems fair. I'm doing both.
