The amazon associates newsletter recommended alexa's tools. I notice one of them will check for broken links. [pages.alexa.com...]

The one I think is cool, though, is the mod_perl module that makes amazon ads based on your content.

Thanks i know this but the pb is they say :
"*The email address domain must match the domain of your website. If you would like a report mailed to an email address whose domain doesn’t match, send your request to alexa_report@alexa.com."

and for now i haven't received any report :( this is why i was looking for stg else similar.

Oh, I hadn't tried it myself. have you tried using an email address from your domain, or emailing that address and asking them?
Also what is a "pb" and a "stg"?

Do you mean you want to check if links on your site to amazon are broken? There's a free tool called xenu that you can run on Windows. It is a noinstall utility. My favorite kind. :)

I tried emailing the adress as I don't have the email address from my domain, but no answer for now.

"amoore", a "pb" is a "problem" and "stg" means "something" ;)

sun818, yes I want to ckeck if my amazon links are broken and I use xenu in fact for my site's links. The thing is that xenu cannot report me amazon broken links as they always are redirect links. (amazon redirects to the product or redirects to a page telling you that the page doesn't exist anywmore).

Quite hard to explain :)

Oh, how cute. I can see how this has saved keystrokes and eliminated confusion.
