make money from your Goodreads widget

Posted by Otis Chandler on February 27, 2008
If you have a blog or other website that you show off your books on using our flash widget, you may be interested in our latest change. Now you can configure your widget to add an Amazon Affiliate code, so you can make money off of the enormous stream of traffic perusing your blog. In all honesty not even Goodreads makes a lot of money from Amazon Affiliates - but we didn't want to deny our prolific bloggers the opportunity to make a free lunch :)

Al This is very good news for starving bloggers everywhere.

Thanks!

Uilleam This is great, however it doesn't seem to work. I tried loading it on my blog, and all that appeared was a flash link to my goodreads profile. I tried to drop it on my MySpace page, and although the graphic appeared, none of the links were clickable. Any suggestions?

Otis Chandler MySpace disables clicks from flash, so this is just for blogs. If you don't see it on your blog you either don't have flash 7 or flash isn't supported on your blog.

marshponds Hi Otis,

Love the site, is there anyway to change my home page to something other than updates from my friends? I understand that the site is all about "what your friends are reading," but I enjoy the discussion aspect of the site. I would love to be able to change my home page to updates on discussion threads to which I have contributed, or new comments on books that I own. Is there any way to do that?

Thanks,
Marshall

Danielle Found this page from a google search,.... I noticed recently that this options seems to have disappeared. My Goodreads widgets used to eventually end up on amazon with my tags, but now they are goodreads tags. And the option on the widget maker has vanished.

Any input on that?
