Its happened.. ECS shutdown happened on the 31st.. see more info about that here: http://www.seohome.co.uk/2008/02/26/amazon-associates-ecs-shutdown-announcement/
Both myself and friends who are “webmasters” have been lazy and not updated the code “yet” ..
I was ment to sort it out over the w/e but just could face it and i’m 100% not alone..
Check this out: http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=%22Can%27t+get+data+from+Amazon
Almost 40k of pages indexed NOT returning amazon products.. This must be costing amazon silly money let alone us webmaster (the lazy ones)
You should be able to see a massive dip on the alexa rank but as it not showing today’s data then we will need to wait..
Alexa suggests traffic has drop 13% over the last 3 month and the site of dropped 3 places since yesterday..
