Amazon Releases Context Links Beta

in Article/Blogging/Monetize/Review by

If you’ve been looking for a new way to monetize your blog or site I’ve got some exciting news for you.

Amazon.com (AMZN) has launched the beta of their Context Links for affiliates. According to Amazon.com, “context Links automatically identify and link relevant phrases within your page content to Amazon products, unlocking new ad inventory and saving you the time from having to manually create links.”

Context Links automatically identify and link relevant phrases within your page content to Amazon products, saving you the time when you create manually links to Amazon products.

This service, “Context Links Beta,” works a lot like Kontera and Intellitext in that it dynamically adds advertisements to your content using JavaScript.

Unlike Kontera and IntelliText, though, Amazon Context Links are actually CPA rather than CPC. You earn revenue when someone makes a purchase on Amazon.com after being referred by your site. Amazon Context Links also offers a much greater range of customization options.

Context links are a cool way to monetize your content rich websites (and blogs) using the amazon associates program.

Put up a javascript code before your tag, and the code will do the rest; i.e place links on special keywords like names of authors who’s books are sold on amazon, Brand names who’s products are sold on amazon or the product names themselves; the text will automatically get linked to the product page on amazon. Not only that, you can also add some blin to your blog by selecting the feature where if users hover their mouse over the link, a snap like popup with the product name, image, rating, and price is displayed.

Who Should Use Context Links?

Context Links are for people looking for an easy way to generate money from the content they write. Bloggers, review sites, and people that have archived pages that are currently not monetized are excellent candidates for Context Links.

How do Context Links Work?

After you embed one simple piece of code on your pages, Context Links will identify and link contextually relevant phrases within your content to Amazon.com products. If you enable the preview functionality your site visitors will see a preview of an Amazon.com product relevant to the phrase we selected. Clicking on the link will send your site visitors to the product detail page on Amazon.com, and you will earn referral fees just as you would with any link you hand-picked.

Setting up Context Links for your website is quick and easy. Simply:

  1. Visit Associates Central->Build Links->Context Links
  2. Specify the maximum number of links you’d like on each page
  3. Optionally customize the display of the links with a couple clicks
  4. Copy/paste the generated code into your pages

You Can Customize the Links

Context Links has provided numerous customization options for Context Links allowing you to control:

  • the number of links on each page
  • which portion of the page will be linked
  • which Amazon product categories are linked
  • the matching of exact product names only
  • if preview windows will appear when your site visitors hover over the links, and the style of those windows
  • the options of single underline, dashed underline, and double underline link formats to indicate to your site visitors that they are Context Links

Inkjet Cartridge

in Review by

Ordering writing supplies online would probably work a lot more efficiently than my current methodology of not restocking until after my printouts and pictures print in all kinds of strange colors…like they’re doing right now, barely recognizable.

From daily usage, the company can consume a couple of toners a day. Sometimes it is difficult to place your order with your suppliers or the vendor – there is just too much documentation to go through before you get your toner.

One thing of course is to place your orders online. I found a site selling inkjet and toner cartridges for your printer, copier, fax and the multifunction machine. A quick glance at the website shows that they do have a huge range of printer products.

Inkers.Biz Has Your Office Or Home Office Toner Cartridge, Inkjet Cartridge, And Fax Cartridge Deeply Discounted.

One advantage in placing an order here is of course you save time in documentation and from just talking to your vendor. Shipping usually takes 2 to 3 days and it is 100% guaranteed against all defects and have a 30 days return policy.

Google Checkout Part of AdSense Referral

in Adsense/Blogging/Google/Monetize by

Google today added Checkout to the AdSense referral program, in addition of AdSense, AdWords, Firefox and Google Packs.

It means you as AdSense publisher can now refer your users to Google Checkout through AdSense.

How the the new referral button works?

Well, every time you refer a user to Google Checkout, you make a little money. It’s a simple process that includes all of three steps:

  1. You place the Checkout referral button on your site.
  2. Someone clicks on the button, signs up as a buyer with Google Checkout using a valid U.S. credit card, and completes a purchase of at least $10 before shipping and tax through Checkout within 90 days. (The current $10 minimum purchase corresponds to our existing $10 promotion for new buyers, so this amount may change in the future.)
  3. You earn $1.

Adsense ReferralsIt’s that simple. But please note that Checkout referrals are currently only available for U.S. publishers, and Google Checkout is currently only available for buyers with a U.S. credit card.

Hopefully both Checkout and Checkout Referrals available in more countries soon. 🙂

If you’re not convinced, why not try it out yourself? . It costs nothing to sign up (actually, you’ll even get a $10 bonus) and it’ll make shopping online a little easier.

Many of adsense publisher already use referrals to direct users to their favorite Google products. Now, with Google Adsense’s new referrals beta, publisher can select products and services from Google base of AdWords advertisers.

This is good news for those of publisher who have wanted to use referrals in the past, but couldn’t find a product to match their site’s content. With the referrals beta, publisher can search for products that match up directly with their site’s content.

Adsense Referral SignupThey can customize their referral units to match the look and feel of their site, making it easier than ever to find a referral ad that fits in seamlessly with their site’s design and content.

What’s more, Google can help make sure publisher find and display the most relevant, best-performing referral ads on their site.

Simply provide a few keywords to describe their site and their users’ interests, and they will see ads automatically displayed that perform best for their site. No more constant updating, rotating products, or guesswork.

As with Adsense’s current Google referrals, publisher will generate earnings when their visitors click through to an advertiser’s site and complete an action defined by their advertisers, such as a sale or sign-up.

Because these actions are often more involved than a simple click or impression, advertisers pay more for these referrals, which can translate into higher earnings for their site.

If you are one of Adsense publisher and interested in being one of Google beta testers, please visit the referrals beta site and sign up.

AuctionAds is an another tool for bloggers and other website owners looking for different ways to monetize their site. It provides you with eBay ads to include in your website.

Website publishers create an account, add descriptive tags relevant to their content, and place an embed code on their site. The AuctionAds widget will then show eBay auctions relevant to the tags.

PCDialup.com Launches

in Article/Internet/Review by

Dial up is not dead. Many of us stopped using dial-up sometime ago. Dial-up became something that we were very happy to forget about.

However for 40% of Web surfers dial-up is still an everyday and regular tool that they use. The new service called PCDialup.com has just launched.

PCDialup.com is an ISP, currently only serving the state of California, that offers dial-up access for $3.95 a month. That’s a pretty good deal if you are looking to save money.

For those using broadband, it serves as an excellent back up in case the broadband services goes down.

For a more dollar extra, users can opt for the Accelerated package where downloading times are 3 times faster than the Basic Package.

For both the packages, users will get:

  • Up to five email boxes for family members, with two gigs of storage each – yourname@pcdialup.com.
  • Custom home page with local weather, news and more – powered by Google!
  • Calendar – maintain your personal schedule, includes alerts to your cell phone.
  • Chat – live chat with friends and family.

So if you online most of the time doing virtual assistance work or even just plain surfing around, it is advisable to reduce cost by getting unlimited use of bandwidth via a broadband connection than the slower modem basic connection that charges you by the minute.
