    I seem to be getting redirected on every amazon.com link to the main page.

    I know you guys auto add your site code to every amazon link. but everylink instead of showing the product is broken and redirects to the main page. with this URL

    Code:
    http://www.amazon.com/?ie=UTF8&link_code=ur2&tag=macrumors-20
    Can anyone go to any amazon product right now?

    Amazon link test

    Seems to be working okay with my link from the US.

    That Georiot stuff redirects based on the country it detects you are in. Are you outside the US?

    Edit: My link worked when I tested in a preview of my post, but now redirects to the main page like you described. Something is busted. :eek:

    You mean that macrumors tag at the end? I think that has been there for a long time and it gets the site money if you buy something through one of those links.

    I know the Georiot stuff fairly new though.
