The Amazon ASIN (Amazon Standard Identification Number) is a proprietary numbering system used by to uniquely identify products on their websites. 

Similar to the ISBN (International Standard Book Number) for books, the ASIN value is used to uniquely identify products on the Amazon website.  Books that already have an ISBN will use this ISBN as the ASIN value, for other products amazon creates a new unique ASIN value.

How to Use ASIN Values at

At Earnwrite, you may associate several ASIN values with each of your articles.  This allows you to associate each article with specific products on  The products you associate with your articles will be shown beside your article as products you recommend.

If you choose to not associate ASIN values with your articles, the tags for your articles will be used to search for related products from Amazon to display.  The results will generally not be as specifically catered to your article as if you had chosen related ASIN values.
