Jeff Chausse has created MyBigRiver.com, a quick and easy search engine for all of Amazon’s products. If you’ve ever gone through the dance of looking up a book on amazon, trying to clean the url, copying and pasting the image url, and then copying all that stuff to your blog, you will like this tool. Just start typing your search query, and append a keyword on the end to help limit the results – i.e. “Pragmatic Ajax book”.
Note that there is a referral code for MyBigRiver appended to the links provided, which you may want to strip out to append your own if you are in the Amazon associates program. I think Jeff could provide more value if he allowed users to append their own referral id, but he is the creator so he can certainly monetize it how he likes. I’ll stick with wp-amazon until there is a nice option to store my own referral id so I don’t have to edit the generated urls by hand.
