Geo-targeting determines the country where a website visitor is located so he/she can be directed to the appropriate Amazon website.
What is geo-targeting?
The built-in geo-targeting function determines the geographical location of an Internet user. This gives you an opportunity to monetise foreign visitors.
If, for example, a user comes from Spain and clicks on the affiliate link, he will not be directed to the German Amazon product page, but to the Spanish page. Not only does this improve your conversion rate, but it also improves the user’s experience.
At the same time, geo-targeting increases the chance that when a user is redirected to the shop in his country, he/she will actually buy something. So, geo-targeting is a useful feature for the user and also helps to ensure higher conversions within the Amazon Associates Program.
