New Google Adwords Policy Benefits Affiliates

New Google Adwords Policy Benefits Affiliates

by: Rosalind Gardner

Until recently, if you did a search on the term กsatellite dishก at Google, and then surveyed the URLกs in the Adwords listings, you were bound to see that most of the ads linked to just one company. Youกd also note that most listings ended with the กaffก (affiliate site) designation.

Eight ads all linking to the same site. How useless and frustrating was that?

Well, Google has just introduced a new affiliates Adwords policy that finally addresses that problem.

However, the new policy has been met with much whining on various affiliate and Internet marketing forums.

Why?

กCause affiliates who link directly from Adwords to their merchant partnersก sites will have to get to work or go home.

Well, maybe.

There seems to be a loophole in the new policyกs wording.

Hereกs how the new affiliate policy reads:

กWith this new affiliate policy, weกll only display one ad per search query for affiliates and parent companies sharing the same URL. This way, users will have a more diverse sampling of advertisements to choose from.ก

กAffiliates or advertisers using unique URLs in their ads will not be affected by this change. Please note that your Display URL must match the URL of your landing page, and you may not simply frame another site.ก

Did they mean to say กdomainก, not กURLก?

If Google did indeed intend กURLก, then there is no problem for those who engage in the กGoogle Cashก method of affiliate marketing, as each affiliate URL is unique.

Hereกs an example.

These are URLกs for 3 affiliate marketers promoting the กFriendFinderก dating service.

http://friendfinder.com/go/p1234

http://friendfinder.com/go/p5869

http://friendfinder.com/go/p3468

Each URL is unique, ergo it should be no problem to for affiliates to link directly to Friendfinderกs site with their affiliate links.

However, if in fact Google meant กdomainก, thatกs quite a different kettle of fish.

Because each URL above points to the กfriendfinder.comก domain, only one listing will be displayed, and chosen on the basis of Ad Rank.

Hereกs the official wording from within the policy.

กFor instance, if a user searches for books on Google.com or anywhere on the Google search and content networks, Google will take an inventory of ads running for the keyword books. If we find that two or more ads compete under the same URL, weกll display the ad with the highest Ad Rank.ก

Ad Rank is determined by a combination of an adกs maximum costperclick and clickthrough rate.

Less competition is great news for affiliates who have always linked back to their own sites… as Super Affiliates always do.

One more benefit to affiliate marketers in Googleกs new Adwords policy is that you no longer need to identify yourself as an affiliate in your ad text. That means no more กaffก at the end of the ad… and 4 more spaces to add content to your listing.

I figure consumers had no idea what กaffก meant anyway, so Google just wanted to get rid of what looked like garble in the listings.

However, your current ad text will continue to display your affiliate status until you change it.

Assuming Google DID mean กdomainก, this new policy is good news for affiliates… genuine affiliate marketers.

Iกve always taught that affiliates with content sites enjoy much higher conversion rates.

Itกs simple. Spend an hour writing an endorsement, upload it to your web site, then advertise that link on Google Adwords.

Why waste advertising dollars on a .5 percent conversion, when it only takes an hour to double or even quadruple that rate?

How To Display RSS Feeds On Your Website

How To Display RSS Feeds On Your Website

by: Allan Burns

This article is intended as a guide for webmasters who want to display automatically updated content on their website in the form of RSS feeds. In this article I will cover the easiest method to implement using javascript for displaying RSS on websites to create additional dynamic content. This will allow you to display headlines from syndicated content around the web on your website.

RSS to Javascript.

By far the easiest method is to use client side javascript to parse and display the headlines on your site. To achieve this all you need to do is cut and paste some HTML or javascript code into the web page where you want the RSS feed headlines to display.

To achieve this there are several sites that offer a free service that will allow you to select a few options to choose your feed source and display formatting parameters. You will then be presented with some javascript code that you can cut and paste into your website.

Now before I give you the address of the sites that offer this service freely there are a few points I need to clarify with you. Although you will achieve your goal of displaying dynamic content on your site in a few short minutes there are some downsides to this method.

Javascript is not search engine friendly.

As you may or may not already know, javascript is not visible to search engine spiders. They will not see the RSS feed you have parsed into your site and so this will not benefit you if you are doing this to better your search engine rankings.

You are using a third party service.

The second potential downside is that although the javascript is on your site you are actually calling a script on another server. This could lead to a couple of potential problems. If the server is busy it will mean the news feed will take longer to display on your site. The other point is if the third party server fails or disappears altogether then your feed will not be displayed at all.

In summary there are a few downsides, but if you do not code and want some feeds on your site quickly then this is the way to go. Ok, so now you understand what is involved here are the links to the sites that provide the free RSS to javascript service. All you need to do is follow the on site instructions.

Display Web Page ThumbShots without Hosting Images

Display Web Page ThumbShots without Hosting Images

by: Ed Zivkovic

What Are ThumbShots?

Thumbshots are screen shot previews of web sites which allow your web site visitors to preview a link before clicking on it.

Who Uses Thumbshots?

Thumbshots can be used by any web site which links to another website in order to enhance the surfer experience. For example, if you operate a directory, you can add a Thumbshot beside each listing.

Thumbshots can also be used by software developers who write scripts and software applications which generate template driven web site management and creation solutions. This really has nothing to do with the software application itself, but because the Thumbshot code can be inserted into the master HTML template, it can be a good selling point for the developer.

To see an example of how Thumbshots can be used, visit http://www.thumbshots.org/portfolio.pxf. The web page is an AZ type of directory which displays Thumbshot listings of sites that use Thumbshots.

How to Display Thumbshots

To display Thumbshots at your web site, you will first need to register for Free at http://www.thumbshots.org/freethumbshots.pxf, then add the following line of code inside an image tag:

img src=กhttp://open.thumbshots.org/image.pxf?url=[ADD URL HERE]ก width=ก120ก height=ก90ก

This method will allow you to display Thumbshots easily without ever creating any of the images or ever uploading them to your server. All images are served by thumbshots.org.

The license agreement at thumbshots.org states that if you use their thumbshots, you should do the right thing and give credit back to their site. Details here: http://www.thumbshots.org/attribution.pxf

Thumbshots Limitations

Thumbshots served by thumbshots.org will only display previews of web sites that are listed in the http://www.dmoz.org directory. This might cause your visitors to perceive incorrectly that a site without a preview image is less important than a site with a preview.

For example, I view traffic exchange sites as less important than content sites. Yet, my single page traffic exchange project gets listed at DMOZ while my content site riddled with articles does not.

It is possible to display thumbshots by using an alexa.com code, but according to their terms of use I think that it would not be a good idea.

More info about the Alexa code plus links to another Thumbshot service at this blog: http://blog.outercourt.com/archive/2004_06_03_index.html. Scroll down to the heading กAlexa Thumbnailsก.
