Thread: API/Datafeed type sites?

  1. #16
    Getting off topic here, maybe the topic of another thread... but have you heard anything of either of them developing an API?

    If I was to develop an indexing checker for Yahoo and MSN via the parsing method, would I get them knocking on my door and complaining?

    Doesnt look like it, the RSS feed doesnt seem to contain the total numbers of pages, plus the copyright section in the RSS says you couldnt use it for that.

    Hi Guys,

    I am a consultant for zZounds and helped them get their feed going.

    I have a list of all of our programs that offer free feeds plus programs that use our IPC (Instant Page Creator) that lets you build custom sites filled with thousands of products in about 2 minutes. It's dynamic and offers different format options.

    Be sure to check out the National Geographic IPC demo just so you can play with it and see how versatile it is.

    Datafeed and IPC Demo & Directory
    http://www.5staraffiliateprograms.co...datafeeds.html

    Let me know what you think of the IPC.

    QUESTION - is the IPC similar to AWS or API type apps? Are there any features the other apps have that we are missing? Is ours as easy to use as others?

    Thanks!

    Yes, yesterday I'm sure I read something about Yahoo releasing a search API.

    Yahoo opens up its search toolbox to developers

    They're also renaming 'Overture' to 'Yahoo Search Marketing Solutions'.... Catchy...

    Hi r2d2

    "Shouldnt these be things you should be keeping up with yourself?"

    I'm just in marketing and it's not my product, so no not really. I know how the IPC works, not my job to know how they all work. I am not an affiliate or the developer so I have not had the need or the time to look into either app and since I'm not a programmer it would probably look like greek to me. Hence the question. I assume from some things I have read they are somewhat similar. So was curious.

    Ah Ok. By 'you', I really meant zZounds in general, but I see now you were a consultant rather than working for the company directly.

    Anyway, I just meant someone from zZ should be keeping up with the other market leaders with regards to affiliate program features.

    Actually zZounds is only one out of about 20 affiliate programs I consult for and they just have a straight feed. They don't have an API type tool at all like the IPC many of our other clients use.

    We are in the process BTW of adding 8 more IPC datafeed tool programs in the next month or so. Luggage, executive gifts, golf push carts, spare beds, pet products, rugs, flooring and a couple others. We are also working on a new dynamic version that is spiderable PHP instead of java. I'm sure the developer knows all about the API and other options. I just don't, so was curious how this one stacks up.

    Hi Linda,

    I signed up for zZounds last week. I plan to do similar with it the way I have my amazon sites. Will be another two weeks or so before I can really dive into it.
