Is there a way to add Amazon affiliate products into an RSS feed?

You should really ask Amazon about this.

I use feedburner. My feed's URL is example.com/index.rdf. You create a feed at feedburner called, feedburner.com/myfeed. Then, you use a 302 redirect to redirect example.com/index.rdf to feedburner.com/myfeed, and feedburner gets your feed from a "secret" location like example.com/secret-index.rdf

I originally set it up to show amazon every third item, but then I changed that to show every item. Despite changing it twice, I'm still only getting it every third item if that.

And, if I have a post about, say, a terrorist bombing it might insert a link to a book about kittens. You can also choose to display different amazon categories however.

I haven't had much success with amazon and ads in the feed haven't done anything that I can see but then again I don't have hundreds or even dozens of feed readers.

Kanoodle also has a way to add ads to your feed, but I don't know anything about that.
