    TLD, Outstanding!

    Remember to add that new site to your account:

    Login -> Account --> Edit Websites ---> Add a new website

    Although links for any site will work, by doing this you'll be able to segment your efforts from this particular site in the reporting interface.

    Got it. Did that today as well. Playing around with the product category set up feed. Is the Java the easiest way to do this? and do the other methods require additional programming?

    Javascript is the easiest integration method although it's not as effective because the content cannot be seen/crawled/indexed by search engines as well. I suggest using the Web Service Datafeed Client option. You'll need PHP configured and some knowledge of HTML & CSS (to modify the template file) but no real programming knowledge is required. This client has a lot of nifty advanced configuration options including internal redirects for your outbound links, utilization (or not) of the no follow attribute and more.

    Drop me a line if you would like to see a couple examples of this tool in action. The end result from getting your product level pages crawled and indexed is 'shoppers in shopping mode' finding the way to your site through the SERPs, rather than 'browsers surfing a site' and hopefully clicking on a product level Buy Now link delivered through Javascript.

    Gary,
    Pros vs. Cons on showing the prices?

    For the site I've built, I'm not sure how to integrate the Web Service Client Data feed; when I built it, I ended up with multiple files and folders for one category. I am wanting to add the code right into the temnplate I've created.

    using RSS to show the prices, I have to use php files and not sure how that gets tied into the site. Using HTML output, I get what I need, but no prices...

    Advice?

    Hi TLD,

    There is help documentation a long the way for the web service client. You'll need to be running PHP for this client, however.

    We do offer a sample script for free that will allow you to publish RSS content as HTML to you your web pages.. this script will publish any RSS feed to HTML for you.

    As far as HTML displays. We don't display prices with the HTML version of the Product Display Builder b/c it's hard coded and not a dynamic display. This way if the merchant changes pricing it won't be reflected as the wrong price on hard coded affiliate pages.

    Another option that we just went live with is an Affiliate API you might find useful for pulling real-time data from merchant feeds (we update most merchans feeds every 24 hours). It's available under 'Tools' and we'll be making some announcements about this API here soon.

    If you would like some more info on the web service client (how to configure, install and customize) or parsing RSS content to HTML drop me an email.

    Still have not had time to figure out the rss or api feed, but did get my first sale this month! Adding a video script this weekend so hopefully that will start a community and people adding their videos. That first sale gets the enthusiasm going again.
