Links & Banners
I verified that adding
internal=1 parameter and removing
http: from an iframe banner URL will cause it to load securely. I also verified that the clicks are counted (show up in the link Earnings and Link-Type reports.
Important: This does not work for all banner ads. While reviewing the banner ads, this trick will work on any ad that displays without mixed content warnings on the amazon page.
<iframe src="http://rcm-na.amazon-adsystem.com/e/cm?t=tidgubi-20&o=1&p=12&l=ur1&category=mp3&f=ifr&linkID=4ZPJJS7R4IXD5OGO&internal=1" width="300" height="250" scrolling="no" border="0" marginwidth="0" style="border:none;" frameborder="0"></iframe>
This widget can be secured with some work.
Amazon doesn’t sanitize the amazon_ad_tag parameter, so the &internal=1 trick works for this widget.
http:" from the script src attribute and update the widget script with:
Partially Secure Widgets
These widgets will load securely; however, they load insecure content if the user hovers over a product and causes a popup to load.
Some quick testing showed the non-mobile friendly widgets use flash. While the flash code is loaded securely, it loads insecure content when executed. Using any of these results in mixed content warnings.
