How to understand the Free Site Audit Report
Below we have listed the descriptions of the Link Error Report.
Running Linkmoney App will Automatically Fix these link errors and provide a full audit of every Amazon Affiliate link on your website.
1. Your Website XML Sitemap
This is the XML sitemap you submitted to be audited.
2. Detected Amazon Store Codes
Typically an Amazon Affiliate site will have one Amazon Store Tracking ID. If you are showing more than one, you could have multiple store codes and may be missing Amazon Referral Commissions. There are three different types notifications:
Of you see this notification, your Amazon affiliate site only has one Amazon tracking code.* This is what most Amazon publishers want.
You will see this if your Amazon affiliate site has more than one Amazon tracking code. For most sites, it is best to have only one tracking code.
To see the different codes and fix these links, you will need to run Linkmoney App.
If you see this warning, it means you have several different Amazon store tracking codes on your site. This is the worst warning of the Amazon tracking code warnings.
Run Linkmoney App to find and fix these links so you earn the maximum revenue from your site.

4. Errors Detected by Linkmoney App
These are some of the errors Linkmoney found on the free scan. The full list of errors Linkmoney will detect can be found in this article called “Linkmoney App Reports Link Errors“.
Invalid Regions Errors– These are Amazon links found that go to another Amazon Region than the US Amazon store. If your Amazon Affiliate site has links that go outside the US region, you may be losing valuable Amazon Referral Commissions.
These are common if you have, or have had other contractors outside the US creating content for your affiliate website.
No Amazon Store Tracking ID– This is the number of links found that do not have an Amazon Store Tag. If any of your Amazon affiliate links do not have the proper Amazon Stoer Tag, your site is losing Amazon Referral Commissions.
This is a common error for Amazon Affiliate websites.
It is also often used to get an “anchor” link to some sub-section of a page such as:
Multiple Tags– These are links that have more than one Amazon Store Code in the link. This renders the link as a bad link and you will not receive your Amazon Referral Commissions.
Extra Link Text / Queries– these are links that have excessive text in the link. Linkmoney will clean up these links and turn them into perfect Amazon Affiliate links.
You can choose to clean up your links by choosing this option in the License Control Panel.
Amazon links with no ASIN
Link or Tag encoding problems
Amazon links with no ASIN– These are links Linkmoney found that are missing the ASIN (Amazon Standard Identification Number).
This is a common error found in both Non-Product links, like an Amazon search link, and product links.
Link or Tag encoding problems– These are links that Linkmoney has detected that have HTML encoding errors.
Linkmoney App will correct and update these improperly encoded URL’s wherever possible, so you earn your Amazon Affiliate Commissions.
