Using eMiniMalls in non-contextual mode

Using eMiniMalls in non-contextual mode

  • 1 October 2005

By default eMiniMalls service is set to be non-contextual. That means you can set your own keywords. The following lines in your customized code can be edited to include keywords of your choice:

ch_non_contextual = 1; v

ar ch_queries = new Array("laptop", "ipod");

var ch_selected=Math.floor((Math.random()*ch_queries.length));

ch_query = ch_queries[ch_selected];

Please note: Replace the list of queries above with a meaningful set of products or queries for your type of audience. Instead of generic keywords like "food" and "gadgets", try and use product centric keywords such as "chocolate cake" or "digital cameras" that you think might make sense for your site and audience.

For example, use code like this:

ch_non_contextual = 1;

var ch_queries = new Array("chocolate cake", "digital cameras");

var ch_selected=Math.floor((Math.random()*ch_queries.length));

ch_query = ch_queries[ch_selected];

So that begs the question: How do you know what the top products in your category are ? Visit Amazon.com and Shopping.com and look at the best selling products in the category. Then copy the entire product name and test it out using the the search tab on the unit on http://chitika.com/ (PS: By using chitika.com you are not inflating your own stats). If it works, add it to the list of queries in ch_queries in your code).
