    It is my understanding that the CJ feeds update weekly.

    I had gotten an email yesterday that there was a system wide delay with datafeeds.

    Thanks, would be nice if they posted such info to everyone, or put it as an alert on
    the site... we have had a daily ftp data feed since many years, and been "5 bars"
    publisher since even longer... previous time a month or perhaps 2 ago, when they were
    not refreshed for 2 weeks or so, at least one of our advertisers mailed us about the
    problem, but CJ never yet.

    Nu, glad to say, there was a fresh datafeed again on the 18th. Maybe someone from
    CJ is monitoring ABW again (that also would be a great step forward,
    a great step backward literally in fact;-) Was sure nice when Todd was around here on
    a regular basis.

    are you talking about feeds from cj webservices? or the "plain" datafeeds cj provides?

    btw (i dont know if i am off topic or not) is there any way to know which merchants are on cj webservices and offer their datafeeds there?

    I can't tell about the webservices, did not try them. It was just about the plain datafeeds
    from cj, via ftp. They have been daily fresh since my last posting again. As for those
    feeds, every merchant that has product links on cj, also has a data feed with those same
    product links. It would seem *logical* that CJ webservices also derive from that same
    source, but I really do not know for sure.

    It depends on how you use the one or the other, and where...

    if you have mostly a content site that gets massive traffic, FOR the content, then catchy
    banners on top or bottom and sides, may seduce some or more to click, and or to buy,
    depending also on your choice of banners (are the products or services offered of interest
    to *your* specific audience?? etc.)

    if you have mostly 'directed' visitors looking for products, it can help to show them the
    products they look for directly, and not some more general banner..

    if you just want to show a few (changing) products *as* a banner / side-ad, you are better
    of with some dynamic showcase, many merchants offer them.
