Web services and contextual solutions from Commision Juction


It appears that God listens to my prayers some times 🙂

CJ today announced their new web services that integrate your aps with their affiliate programs.

I took a look some of the code examples and there are some very interesting contextual ads and mini product search engine.
I think this new APIs from CJ can make a really difference, especcially for people that aren’t sattisfied with Adsense.

Bellow is the official announcment :

Commission Junction is pleased to announce the launch of its much-anticipated Web Services. Web Services allow you to extend the power of your affiliate program through enhanced Product Catalog functionality and link and advertiser searches. Use our Web Services to tap into Commission Junction’s technology and create custom applications to access the data that matters most for your affiliate program.

Right media ending business with proxies


Today I got an email from Right Media, as an announcment that they stop business with proxy sites. Anyway I have stoped delivering their ads to my proxy, as I found a better pop up network, but the way they did that shows to me that Right Media is a serious company.

Bellow is the original mail I got :

Hello Right Media publishers,

We have made a decision as a network to no longer serve ads to proxy-style or proxy-related sites.
We agree that web browsing privacy is an important issue and that proxy sites have legitimate uses on the internet.  Unfortunately, the fact that users can use these services to view restricted material makes it unknown as to where our ads might be appearing or next to what type of content.  For this reason we need to disable all sites in our system labeled as a proxy site.
This change will go into effect at 5PM Pacific time, on September 20th.  Please plan on finding new advertising solutions before this time. The tags you are using for those sites/sections will show blanks after this time.

If you have sites listed in your account that are not proxy sites, those will remain active.

Thank you for your understanding on this matter.  We’re sorry if it causes any inconvenience.  Payments will be made on their scheduled times for all revenue earned up to this point, including amounts below the minimum of $50 if you have no other active sites in your account.
