Ok ive got like so many emails about this…

Yes the ads on the right are eBay ads through commission junction. They are contextual looking but I opted to use the keyword version targeting, specifically “search engine seo” and not the contextual engine which would violate TOS with google/ypn if i wanted to use them. (similar to chitika)

  1. Hey, why not…Tap that never ending pile of money over at ebay. Looks like a good way to get the eggs out of the basket and scramble up an omlette…Go Big Red!

  2. How long have you been running it and have they been succesful? Would be good to hear about it on the show tomorrow.

  3. Nice Shoe. I’ve been running Ebay ads on a video game portal of mine and they actually perform quite well. Good luck with yours!

  4. about 18 hours.

    It is hit and miss. I dont think on average on my blog it will beat ypn/adsense

  5. To be more accurate, the affiliate program goes through CJ.

    The developer program is through eBay, but you don’t get paid by the developer program.

  6. ok capt technicality but when you goto the developer site it tells you step 1 is to get a cj account =P

    geez you act like you wrote it or something……….

  7. showmoney will you please talk about these on your show tomorrow and how people can make them work on there site.


  8. Possible… Depends if dillsmack wants to co-host the show again. He wrote the code that makes it work.

  9. In germany ebay offers contextual “ebay relevance ads” since months, which are ok to use on the same page as adsense (according to e-mails from google).
    But i took them off because of poor performance and long load-times.

  10. the ironic trend of popularity is that the more popular you get for being smart… the dumber your fan base becomes.

  11. I’ve not looked at these before now, but it’s a great idea – I’ve got a couple of sites that these would rock on. Is there any geo-targetting possible with it? Say someone in the UK is looking at the ads, they get sent to ebay.co.uk instead of the .com?

  12. hm, where is my comment?

    i just wanted to add that there is an ebay program in germany, called ebay relevance ad, which is contextual and compatible with google adsense.

  13. is Dillsmack you php god? I got a bottle of booze and 2 fine looking ladies that could convince him to work with me. haha

  14. I guess you are testing those ebay ads.
    Your report on conversion of them would be very appreciated.

    Thank you for informing me about this change !

  15. Very interested in hearing about those ebay ads. I have been thinking about adding them to a few of my sites lately.

    Btw, why dont you stick the delicious, digg and other links in your comments.php file so they show up in the individual post only and not on your main page.

  16. I have to admit, I’ve never saw those ads before…keep us updated on how they’re performing 🙂

  17. Anyone know if CJ is still expecting foreigners to get US Tax IDs? Thats what has kept me out – this little black duck isn’t mailing a passport away!

  18. Shoemoney, can you tell me how and which link for your ebay ads? I have CJ account and trying to setup similar ads on my video ipod site.
