The start of an API: a basic ad API for affiliates

tl;dr
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

Full Version
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):

The start of an API: a basic ad API for affiliates

We have tested these specific type of ads on several sites, they convert:

  • pingfarm.com
  • indexkings.com
  • linkcheckpro.com
  • exposix.com
  • webmasterquery.com
  • socialclerks.com
  • gamersglitch.com
  • youpluslike.com
  • phpinformer.com
  • howtolounge.com
  • whywontmy.com

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.

Plugins
Plugins for most major platforms are being developed including xenforo, vbulletin, wordpress and Joomla.

So, you don't care if we make replicas of seoclerks using this? I was thinking of making a level 2+, under $5 website such as cheapseogigs.com or similar.

Let me know if you need anything more. Hopefully the seller, WTB and other portions of the API will be created soon. I was considering a quick-user account creator API (allowing affiliates to list the services and send information about the user to the API to instantly create accounts on SC while passing them through to the order URL). I wasn't sure if it would be useful.

Any plans to include a way to authenticate seoclerks users ( and send back data such as email, username, balance, affiliate info etc; ) on external websites? I know that most people wouldn't need this, but I have a few ideas of sites that I could build if this was added The start of an API: a basic ad API for affiliates

A rapid user creation API is being developed, where you can pass through basic information such as email and username. An account will be created on the fly and seamlessly (so you could send them straight to an order page without the user having to create an account/login).

Sending information back such as email would violate our privacy policy and I could imagine the spammers who would extract that info to spam every one of our members for their new and cool "seo" marketplace (which they already do via PM). Of the things you mentioned, the only thing we could send back would be the username. Open a ticket in the HD (or message me on skype) and we can talk about it further.

It seems that "xml" and "php serialized" data is generated with errors. I tried to desirialize and load xml using php functions and get errors. Please check it.

I'm using JSON too, seems the best option in this case The start of an API: a basic ad API for affiliates

What errors did you get with XML?

It seems PHP has a bug in the serialize method and doesn't count the characters properly, resulting in a string that cannot be unserialized. Try this fix:

$serialize = preg_replace('!s:(\d+):"(.*?)";!se', "'s:'.strlen('$2').':\"$2\";'", $serialize);

What errors did you get with XML?

I think the error is because XML can't contains "digital" tags. Your XML looks like:

[HTML]<root><0><id>6558</id><prefix>will</prefix>...</0></root>[/HTML]

I am not sure that <0>, <1>... etc are valid tags for XML. And simplexml_load_string think the same:

Warning: simplexml_load_string(): Entity: line 2: parser error : StartTag: invalid element name


I think you need to change the XML so:

[HTML]
<root>
<services>
<service><id>...</id></service>
...
<service><id>...</id></service>
</services>
</root>
[/HTML]

LIMITED AVAILABILITY | SELLING OUT QUICKLY | SOON TO BE *poof*... HISTORY...


This will be on a "First-Come, First-Serve" Basis only!!


WE JUST LISTED THIS 24 HOURS AGO AND ALREADY SOLD THREE SPOTS!! - GET YOURS BEFORE THE SPACES FILL UP!!

(see 2 of them below)

HERE ARE A COUPLE EXAMPLES ALREADY INSTALLED:

THE VIDEO BELOW FORGETS TO MENTION, IS THAT YOU CAN ADD A WEBSITE HOSTED SOMEWHERE ELSE IF YOU WISH (as shown ABOVE)- AND BENEFIT FROM THE TRAFFIC OF ComClerks!!



It is only fair to the ones who DO Decide to have an Affiliate landing Page with us, that we Limit the Total amount so as to not draw attention away from the Stores that are already There.



But nothing to Worry about.

We have 10 More Domains on the Way!!



Please, be Sure to WATCH THIS VIDEO ASAP!!






I worked on it for 3 days with NO SLEEP to get all the information together.



We have TEN More Domain Names that we plan on Hosting Soon - at which point, we will be accepting SPECIFIC Seller Levels such as Level X Sellers ONLY For SEOClerX.com

The start of an API: a basic ad API for affiliates


(and many others)

But CommunityClerks will Link to ALL Stores & Sites Relating to SEOClerks


I can't mention the NINE Others publicly or people will steal the ideas. Yes! They're THAT Good!!



The first 5 People who Order an Affiliate Landing Page at ComClerks, get first Dibs when I open the other Sites.


The start of an API: a basic ad API for affiliates

  • YOUR LANDING PAGE:

The Landing Page on CommunityClerks is on Wordpress (.org - so it's "Self-hosted - that's a good thing)



So if you're familiar with Wordpress, great!! You will be given a Limited Admin Account where you'll be able to create your own Pages however you wish. (our basic plan- cheapest)


ALL Pages Come with a Social Share Tool by "Addthis" as well as MANY other great SEO Features I have worked hard to Implement


If you are NOT familiar with Wordpress or even if you're a total Beginner at everything having to do with Websites, our "extras' will make it so you don't have to do a thing!!



We can install one of our two Most Popular Pages that Convert Affiliates better than ANY Method we've tried - and was the MAIN and ONLY Reason why we were able to Win the Affiliate Contest Last time!!


Which are:

You'll notice that these Pages do NOT include my OWN Services (maybe a couple), but are mostly made up of Services offered by OTHER Sellers!!!


The Secret was to Seek out the VERY Best or least Expensive Services from a variety of Sellers, then Link to each one of them with my Referral Link Embedded,


Well, in the Case where you sign up for an Affiliate Landing Page, the Embedded Affiliate Link will be YOURS!!


So these Landing Pages will Generate HUGE AMOUNTS of Affiliates for anyone who Opts for the Gig "extras".


I simply send you a Text Document with the Proper HTML Code on it, and all you do is Paste it and BAM - You've got an Affiliate Landing Page in a matter of 30 Seconds!!!


We created these Pages back before the Last Contest, and they still generate More Affiliates than ANY other Source.


Be sure to watch the Video above (or HERE) - It Explains EVERYTHING!!!

The rating data this a combination of the negative and positive (positive - negative). I'll add each individual rating as well, though. Check back an hour from this post and it should be there.
