Apple posts iTunes Link Maker
October 17, 2003 - 13:16 EDT Apple has posted the iTunes Link Maker, which allows you to easily create a direct link to a song, album or artist on the iTunes Music Store. "This simple Web interface will automatically generate html you can copy-and-paste into your own code to create deep links to any music on the iTunes Music Store. Simpy enter a song name, album name, artist name, or any combination of the three to get started." With the new iTunes 4.1, you can also drag-and-drop links from the store into e-mails, instant messages or Web pages.

My Comments: Good idea.. but I really don't think this is going to do too much, since I know myself.. I would rather link to Amazon since if the person purchased the item.. I would get a percentage of that item.. while with this link.. you don't get anything..


I actually implimented this into the code for my blog. The only reason I think it's cool is that I can post a link to something I like and anyone who has iTunes can take a little listen to it. And if they like it they can purchase it. No money for me but it shows some cool technology from Apple.


Another good way to create a link is to find the song you want to link to in the store, then simply drag it's name to the desktop. This will create a link from there. Also you can drag the name into another program (such as Mail) to email the link to someone, without ever using the web based link generator.
