The Importance Of Organizing Your Links
Managing and organizing your links is vital if you’re looking to measure growth, analyze your marketing efforts, or find that elusive link you built years ago. Staying organized can be a challenge, but we’re here to rise to the occasion. It is our never-ending quest to make managing your links and marketing campaigns even easier. We are excited to show you our newest organization and search functionality settings that can help you keep your links in order so you spend less time looking for your links and more time analyzing and polishing them!
Organizing And Managing Your Links With Groups
The best way to track your clicks from high traffic pages or to split your tracking between sites is to use our Groups and Group Override features.
By grouping your links together in page-specific Groups, you'll be able to track the clicks from each page or site, allowing you to better compare the overall click results on a page or site level, rather than just on a per-link level.
Using Groups To Split Up Your Amazon Commissions Tracking
Additionally, since you can create up to 100 unique Tracking ID's within each of your Amazon Associates dashboards, you can also leverage our Groups Override feature to see how each page is performing on a revenue level - you just need to create a page-specific Tracking ID within your Associates account, then add that ID to the appropriate Group using the Group Overrides feature (which is covered in the above article). Doing this will apply that unique Tracking ID to all of the links within your page or site-specific Group, which will result in clicks from those links being reported in your Associates account under that specific tracking ID. This will then allow you to see exactly how much those links (and therefore that page) is earning you in commissions.
Moving Links Between Groups
Moving Links One At A Time With The Link Editor
Moving links between groups can be done manually and can only be done one link at a time. You can do this by editing your link and clicking the folder icon at the top left underneath your link's URL and selecting the group to which you would like to add your link.
Moving Links In Bulk From The Links Page
Alternatively, you can also bulk move links between groups. To do this, navigate to your links page and click the boxes to the left of each link that you’d like to add to a group. Once you’ve selected all of the links you’d like to add to your group click the “move to” button right above your links on the left. See below!
Once you’ve selected a group your selected links will be moved into that group!
Managing And Organizing Links With Search, Notes, Sort, And Filter Options On The Links Page
We’ve made new updates to the search, sort, and filter functionality of our links page that will allow you to easily organize and filter your links so you can find that one B&H link you created at 2 am on a Sunday morning a year ago!
By merely clicking the search icon above your links, you can now easily search across all of your links, using keywords in the title, metadata of your link or even the vanity code itself.
Additionally, if you’ve leveraged notes to leave reminders for your team or tracking tags to segment marketing efforts, you’ll appreciate our updated search field. You can search by Notes or Tracking Tags with a simple search.
Date Created, Number of Clicks, And Last Updated
Want to take a trip down memory lane and see how much your affiliate business has grown, or check out your all-star links? When performing a search query, it’s also possible to sort the links returned by date created (newest and oldest) and the number of clicks (most clicks and fewest clicks), both ascending and descending. Our newest addition even allows you to see your last updated links so that you can easily find the links you may have just edited.
Finally, if you click “Advanced…” you’ll be able to sort by link type so that you can easily group all of your links of a single type together for quick and streamlined management of your link types. You can even designate whether you’d like to have your archived links included in your search results.
