    Thumbs up Working with data feeds
    Hi,

    My first post...

    And yes, a newbie question...

    I hope to contribute more later once I get the hang of affiliate marketing. So looking forward to sharing experiences with you guys!

    My question:

    I want to work with data feeds and I designed my site to resemble Pinterest layout.
    Now each block is a content article. I want to mix up my article posts with product items from data feeds.
    I read about data feed tools such as Popshops, Webmerge, and Datafeedr. But these seem to create fixed storefronts and thus do not allow me to have a product item next to a blog post or do they?
    I really want to mix my articles with product items and not have a separate block of just products. That would be boring...

    Any thoughts how can I test these tools for my purposes, and which tool would you recommend? Can I mix up blog posts with product items from a data feed in a Pinterest layout? Any sample data feed I can get somewhere for testing (I have never worked with data feeds)?

    Thanks for your help!

    Hello Ronbon, welcome to ABW. We'd like an introduction, but in the meantime I'll try to answer your question (though more technical folks may have better suggestions!). I would use one of those tools for the Pinterest layout, and deeplink or pull a single line from a datafeed for your posts, as it doesn't sound like you are a coder either. A lot may depend on how you want to present the articles. Good luck.

    Hi JCrooks,

    Thanks. I tested the tools and none really fit my needs. I know how to code, just need a sample data feed now.
    I will post another thread requesting for that if you dont mind.

    P.S. Where is this "new members introductions" section?
