    Talking Search Box
    Hello,

    Just got an email from an affiliate asking me how to grab a search box from my program. I am afraid that I do not have one and not sure how to get it and what is should & shouldn't.

    Do you as an affiliate like to use the search boxes on your site?

    Any and all ideas are greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    We only use our sites' internal search box on our websites. Can't remember the last time we used a merchant's search box to send them traffic...

    On niche sites that promote only one merchant's offerings, search box banners tend to convert better than standard graphical banners.

    Milan I don't think a search box would be a good idea for your line, though. Most natural-language searches would yield no results because there isn't enough descriptive textual material associated with your products for a search mechanism to key in on. How many people are going to search for an "R 64"? Any searches that would be general enough to key in on something would yield a list of results that includes every item from an entire category. That might not be so bad... you've "got them in the door".... but the dud searches would only drive people away.

    If an affiliate does want to use a search box for DCT, they can get that through Goldencan.

    Thanks to you both, I think I will not waste time on the search box then.

    Hi, I am the affiliate that asked Milan about the search box and it is the Goldencan one to which I refer.

    I received an email offering me this facility and I was wondering how to get it and Milan kindly offered to find out for me.

    Regards
