What is the SearchAndAdd feature and how do I use it to create a Carousel?

Use the SearchAndAdd feature to populate your Carousel widget with results from a Keyword search within an Amazon category. To use this feature, add the following key-value pairs to the Widget Template:

1. widgetType='SearchAndAdd'

2. keywords='KEYWORD_VALUE'
Replace KEYWORD_VALUE with a specific keyword.

3. searchIndex='INDEX_VALUE'
Replace INDEX_VALUE with a specific Amazon category. To learn more about Search Index and get the complete list of available Search Index values, click here.

E.g. searchIndex=’Apparel’ returns bestsellers from the Apparel category

4. [Optional] browseNode='NODE1, NODE2 etc.'
Replace NODE1,NODE2 etc. with a list of Browse Node values. The Carousel widget will be populated with Bestsellers from NODE1. If it does not find a minimum of 6 bestselling products from NODE1, then it will get more bestsellers from NODE2 and so on.

Use the browseNode parameter to drill-down into a specific Amazon category. For e.g. if you specify browseNode='1045066,1045024,1040660', the Carousel will be populated with Bestsellers from the category Professional<Dresses<Women<Apparel

For example, the Widget Source code below creates a Carousel widget containing search results for the phrase 'Netaya' in the 'Jewelry' category:



<script>
var amzn_wdgt={widget:'Carousel'};
amzn_wdgt.tag='widgetsamazon-20';
amzn_wdgt.widgetType='SearchAndAdd';
amzn_wdgt.searchIndex='Jewelry';
amzn_wdgt.keywords='Netaya';
amzn_wdgt.title='Jewelry by Netaya';
amzn_wdgt.width='600';
amzn_wdgt.height='200';
</script>
