ADDING AMAZON LINKS:

  1. Search for a product on amazon.com (only U.S. site), it will yield a long search like this: http://www.amazon.com/Skoy-Eco-friendly-Cleaning-Cloth-4-pack/dp/B00275BB6S/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1363903306&sr=8-1&keywords=eco-friendly+kitchen+roll
  2. Look for the ASIN# of the product in the “Product Detail” section on the page, see example here. The ASIN# is also included in the URL of the page, look as the red highlighted number in the link above in #1. 
  3. Now that you have the ASIN#, add it right after “dp” in the URL i.e http://www.amazon.com/dp/ASIN# and then add the following OGP ID at the end, example: http://www.amazon.com/dp/ASIN#/?tag=onegrepla-20 
  4. After editing the URL, this is what the final link should look like: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00275BB6S/?tag=onegrepla-20 (example from #1)
  5. Make sure product images also have the above links embedded.
