##Late addition - because of the adoption rate for this product, it may take up to 24 hours for you to start seeing links. We are working on reducing that time and appreciate your patience.##
Today we would like to announce another great feature now available to all Amazon.co.uk Associates: Context links (beta).
What are Content Links?
Context Links are a quick and convenient way to add links to your website and monetize your content.
After you embed one simple piece of code on your pages, Context Links automatically identify and link relevant phrases within your page content to Amazon products, unlocking new ad inventory and saving you the time from having to manually create links. You can add the links to your pages in minutes, and we provide a wealth of options to customize how they are displayed.
If you enable the preview functionality your site visitors will see a preview for the Amazon.co.uk products relevant to the phrase selected. Clicking on the link will send your site visitors to the product detail page on Amazon.com, and you will earn referral fees when the products are purchased.
The following example from Amazon.de demonstrates how Context Links work:
