My Online Computer Software Store

Sunday, April 13th, 2008

I didn't know I had an online computer software store until now, after I put in some time to check latest features from Chitika. The concept of the advertising scheme is very innovative, although I don't think I'll benefit much from the program.

I also added a ShopCloud to my sidebar. If you are interesting in any kind of computer software, do have a look!

What do you think about the new advertising concepts?

If you have been using it for a long time, how's the response?

Chitika’s Multi-Product Unit

Chitika Multiple-Product Unit

I just received a newsletter from Chitika, telling me that they have come up with a new advertisement unit, the Multi-Product Unit. As the name says, it's a single ad unit with multiple products in it.

When you point your mouse to the small image at the bottom, it will be swapped with the large image, together with all the text on the right updated. For this feature, I find that it is still quite buggy. Have you ever seen a black iPod that looks like a camera? After swapping the products for a few times, I see this (notice the text and the image):

Chitika Multiple-Product Unit - Bug

It's only available in the size of 468x180, which is why I don't put a sample here.

I like it when they are creative to create eMinimalls last time. And now, they have multi-product unit. Keep up the good work, Chitika. (However, they need to do more tests on their product as well!)

Chitika’s New Feature – Alternate Ads

Like Adsense's alternate ads, Chitika can now display alternate ads URL when there's no targeted ad for the keyword(s) you have selected (non-contextual) or there’s no ad for the keywords on your site (contextual).
