The start of an API: a basic ad API for affiliates
We've created a new API which allows you to grab service data in various formats (xml, json, PHP Serialized or HTML).
API URL: https://www.seoclerks.com/api/page/serviceads
This idea was partly spawned by affiliates wanting to advertise or display information that was not electronically available to them. Websites such as http://communityclerks.com and http://seoclerkscoupons.com
The best ads are the ones that we aren't trained to ignore already, like banner ads. Of all the various methods we've tried advertising, the ones that convert the best are inline text ads or text ads above the content (on relevant niches). It occurred to us that anyone should have the ability to extract service data based on how you and your website can convert best.
Here is an example found on SocialClerks which pulls relevant data per exchange (in this case, Twitter Followers above the Twitter Follow Exchange):
We have tested these specific type of ads on several sites, they convert:
With the start of our new API, you'll be able to grab the data you need to format any ad you want.
Create any type of ad
With the new API data, you can create and customize any type of ad you need. From a text ad to a full listing just like you find on the marketplace.
Some (random) ideas to get you started:
- Niche Service Site - Start a niche based store (selling Twitter Followers, Facebook Likes, Hosting, whatever you prefer), displaying only relevant services from sellers with level 3 or more
- "Cheap" SEO Services - Create a website or dedicate a portion of your relevant website to "cheap" services, listing only those services currently marked on sale.
- SEO Services for $1 - Same as above, listing on the services for $1
And so on, the sky is the limit.
