  1. Thanks @ChristineDarby! I got impatient and requested reindexing on every URL individually, that seems to have worked for the most part
  2. Site URL: https://thedetoureffect.com/ I enabled AMP on my blog posts last week because I was advised it will speed up my site. It didn't, and it looked horrific and hid all the important information so a couple days ago I disabled it. Now, in Google search results my page still comes up with the crappy AMP version of my pages. When will it stop? Do I have to request reindexing for every single URL one by one with Google now? None of my Black Friday ads probably showed up this whole weekend because of AMP.
  3. Did you ever figure out if there's a fix for #2?
  4. Actually, sorry, I think I'm wrong - I replaced the term 'nofollow' in your code with 'sponsored' instead, but when I did "inspect" it still said 'nofollow', so maybe it wasn't working? I think what I was seeing under "inspect" when I thought it was working, was actually a result of trying out this code in my footer injection. When I went into there and replaced nofollow with sponsored, and then tried to inspect again, it did update to sponsored. Next to where it says 'a[href*="amazon.com"], a[href*="amzn.to"], I wrote in the following so that it would work for avantlink and travel payouts too: a[href*="alnk.to"], a[href*="avantlink.com"], a[href*="tp.media"]' And now when I inspect my avantlink links in the image card, they are rel=sponsored in addition to my amazon links. So I think I'm set?! Unless anyone has an opinion that this code is not ideal for whatever reason. (Just writing this all out in case anyone else has the same question and comes across this thread)! If this means I can stop manually doing a markdown block to insert nofollow/sponsored code individually for every single link I am going to jump for joy. I'm a little nervous to stop doing that though since I'm in the habit, I'm not sure if I trust my footer code injection.
  5. Holy smokes I think that did it for the Amazon links!! Wow, thank you so much! I really appreciate you, I wasn't sure if this would be possible. I bet I will use this code all the time on lots of posts now. The other affiliate programs I use are AvantLink and TravelPayouts
  6. @tuanphan @lucilehr Not yet! I don't even really have any ideas. One time I thought it might just happen when I include music CDs in the ad, because they are wider than books and movie posters. But then I noticed some examples of it happening even when I don't include music, so I have no idea.
  7. Site URL: https://thedetoureffect.com/blog/roadside-attractions-northern-arizona I tried searching the terms "amazon" and "native ads" in the forums but couldn't find anything. I like the custom native shopping ads from Amazon. When I insert the code into my site, sometimes the products don't show up at all. Sometimes it will only show one or two products, even though I had directed it to show 4 products. Sometimes it will only show products on mobile, or only on desktop. What gives? I have adblocker turned off. I have tried on multiple browsers. I emailed Amazon Associates support and they said if the code doesn't play nice with my site then it's Squarespace's fault. The screenshots show where the ads are supposed to be. On my desktop there's nothing. On my cell there's one product showing but there should be two. This issue has been happening for years. I could link/screenshot you to many many other pages on my site that have this issue.
  8. Thanks! How do I know if it worked or not? Is "amzn.to" a reference to Amazon? Some of my links are not Amazon, I have some other types of affiliate links in there
  9. This is awesome that this is possible! I just implemented this on my site and it looks great. I've always been annoyed by the carousels being too small on mobile (but if you use slideshow instead, it's too big on desktop! And you also don't get the reel effect of the next/previous images bleeding over like you do on carousel). One thing I noticed though is that now my horizontal images in the gallery are cropped to be 1:1 instead of 3:2. Do you think there is some way to fix that or am I trying to have my cake and eat it too? Here is the page, it's #block-yui_3_17_2_1_1634909803184_138412
  10. With the overlap style, all of the text next to each image is the caption; those aren't text boxes, they're part of the image block:
  11. Site URL: https://thedetoureffect.com/blog/digital-nomad-gift-ideas Hi there, I found out that I can give an image link a nofollow attribute by pasting this onto the end of the affiliate link: "rel="sponsored This works when you click on the image itself. But if I write a caption and try to include a link there, it doesn't work. Example: I chose the "overlap" design for my images here because it looks cooler than other methods of advertising/linking to products. I wrote long captions to go with each image and included some links in the caption. If I paste "rel="sponsored onto the end of those links, clicking on the links will bring up an error. So I removed "rel="sponsored from all of them, but this is going to hurt my SEO ranking. Any ideas? Thank you!
  12. As you wish, I have now checked the "Show Title and Description" box. If it's the block ID you're after, it's #block-yui_3_17_2_1_1534801545666_87139
  13. I unchecked "show title and description" for now since I don't want it to show the titles. Would you like me to re-check that box?
