Looks like this is only looking for "&tag={id}" and ignores "?tag={id}" (meaning that it assumes that {id} will always be one of several URL params instead of possibly being the only param).

The end result is that "www.amazon.com/author/ikennedy" got turned into "www.amazon.com/author/ikennedy&tag=aliensoup-20" which is actually an invalid URL and results in a 404 error when Amazon tries to redirect the URL. Entering the URL as "www.amazon.com/author/ikennedy?tag=aliensoup-20" in the post results in the URL being saved as "www.amazon.com/author/ikennedy?tag=aliensoup-20&tag=aliensoup-20".

Ideally "?tag={id}" checked if present so that "&tag={id}" doesn't get appended and if there are no parameters at all in the URL then "?tag={id}" should be added instead of "&tag={id}".
