Here’s a look at some of the most useful features in the Growbot script that will help you track down possible Amazon marketing campaigns. I’ve written about it in great detail in my e-book, My First Book Marketing Guide: A Complete Beginner’s Guide to Gaining Success With Amazon Marketing. While you’re reading that guide, keep a look out for a link to it.
While we talked about the Growbot script being a research tool, it’s really more of a comprehensive ‘helper’ for Amazon products. With the tool, you’ll be able to perform data collection through RSS feeds, full report capture and chart output, and even polling capabilities for to know how your niche is doing.
The EGrow Script is a free tool. It does not require any special permissions to run on your site. While it doesn’t require any code to be setup, I strongly suggest that you look at the AdSense script (https://growbot.com/amazon). Both are perfectly viable competitors to Growbot and they both perform very similar functions.
The primary difference between the two scripts is that the Growbot script is typically used as a “scout” in the area of niche marketing. The EGrow Script allows you to discover potential “hot” niches and allow the script to extract your targeted keywords, phrases, and related terms from the HTML source code of any Amazon product page on any of the Amazon sites.
First off, it’s important to have the proper meta tag handling. You should be able to control the tags that are included with the Growbot script itself. EGrow.io uses them (you can see these in the sidebar area). If you’re using the AdSense script, you need to make sure that you get a link to your e-book using Google Webmaster Tools and Meta Captcha, and that you set up the appropriate tags to get the tags from your Amazon pages.
Secondly, when using the EGrow Script, make sure that you get the proper keywords and key phrases for your niche, and ensure that you include the correct tags with the Amazon pages. This will avoid your script running on pages that don’t have the keywords and key phrases you want it to run on.
As far as the extension needs to run, it needs to be placed on your sidebar or in the same folder as your e-book content. The script should be at least 2020 pixels wide by 1000 pixels tall, so don’t put it anywhere else.
The second part of running the extension is uploading the e-book content and then finding the link on the HTML source code of your Amazon pages. Now you’re ready to use the script in your sidebar area to find out the keywords, key phrases, and related keywords that could make the best keywords for your niche.
Once you get the EGrow.io Script running, you can see where it gets the information. It does a keyword-analysis, grabs the affiliate links, and then crawls for your niche keywords, phrases, and related terms. And finally, it tracks the pages for each keyword and displays what pages they appear on.
Next, you should have an option for “activity reports.” There are three different types of reports that you can get for your script, and they are: Targeted Products, Revenue, and Total Revenue. While this might seem like a lot of stuff to deal with, it really isn’t.
First, I recommend that you create an account for yourself and start to follow your niche. This way, you can create good reports for your script and get good keywords. In addition, I’d also suggest that you begin to give your script actionable metrics, such as the number of times a keyword appears on a page or not, or the number of times a keyword appears on a page and comes up empty.
Lastly, if you’re not sure what you’re looking for, it’s an easy process to look up your affiliate link and see what other people are saying about you and your niche. as long as you have the right source of information, of course.
