This method is based on a simple theory.
When you hover your mouse over any amazon affiliate link of any affiliate site amazon tracking link will appear at the bottom of your browser.
Though you probably didn’t notice it, the link doesn’t go directly to the Amazon site. It goes via another domain called amzn.to, which is the tracking domain for Amazon.com.
So your affiliate link does not go directly to amazon. There is another domain in the middle. Your link will point to this site called “amzn.to”.
Keeping search engine in mind, that affiliate link becomes a backlink to this site called “amzn.to” in this way, the affiliate links of everyone who affiliates with Amazon become backlinks to “amzn.to”.
What we are going to do here is filtering these backlinks coming to these amazn.to using Ahref tool.
Okay let’s put the theory behind and get into the action.
