There are more and more mobile devices from which to read content, and one of the most growing is having Amazon Kindle . So why not offer the content of your website for this type of readers ?. In addition, with WordPress it is very easy to incorporate this functionality .

In this Amazon page you can generate a code to create a button with which your readers can easily send your Kindle to your content. The process consists of two main steps: the choice of appearance and the copying of generated codes, one for the template of your website (before the label which will normally be in the file footer.php of your WordPress theme) and another to display the button, usually in single.php .

There are other possible configurations, such as author identification using Open Graph or Schema.org ]or if you want to add your Amazon sales list, if you had it, but the main thing is to choose the design, using simple selectors, and then copy the 2 codes it offers, as I have indicated before.

2. Send to Kindle with plugin

Also linked from Amazon, there is a plugin that offers inserting a button in the easiest way, to WordPress mode. It just installs and activates the Send to Kindle plugin although there are many others that allow the same thing.

The recommended plugin settings allow you, besides deciding where and how it will be displayed the aforementioned button to send to Kindle, the author identification settings, the selectors of Schema.org and others, as well as from the Amazon page. The main difference is that you do not have to touch the WordPress theme at all .

I'm thinking myself add it, although at the moment the statistics do not show me that there are many readers who use Kindle, well, specifically only 2, but perhaps your situation is different.

What, you liked it ?, are you going to implant in your WordPress? .
