With the introduction of the Affiliate Product Optimizer (APO), publishers gain the ability to understand their visitors’
interests in real-time and display optimal, personalized product offers from affiliate networks. By truly listening
to website visitors’ words and actions, publishers can increase their revenues by showing their customers the most
relevant products at just the right time.
The Affiliate Product Optimizer goes much further than standard search or page ads by building a unique profile
of each web site visitor as they interact with the web site, a “Customer Echo”. The Echo is continually refined
over the life of the user session. Rather than using static page content to match offers, the Customer Echo is
used to select the most appropriate offers from the affiliate network, specific to each visitor. This provides
each visitor with a unique and optimized experience based on their personal browsing interests and exhibited site
Initially released with support for the Commission Junction network, and using the Commission Junction Web
Services, the Affiliate Product Optimizer easily plugs into a publisher’s website by adding a pre-generated piece
WordPress platforms without touching any code.
