Amazon Advertising API BrowseNodes
January 02, 2012 @ 11:02:56

In this new post, Sameer Borate shows you how to use his Amazon BrowseNodes script to work with the returned data from the Amazon Advertising API.

The BrowseNodes tool automatically gets all the child BrowseNodes and their names. The program recursively traverses the BrowserNode hierarchy and returns all the BrowseNodes and their respective names. You can display the nodes on the console or save it to a CSV file. You can also include the library in your existing projects to process BrowseNodes.

You'll need curl support on your system to make it work. Several code examples are included showing how to grab a certain node, showing a list of nodes, saving the node information to a CSV, changing locales and getting the parent node for the current node.

Accessing Amazon Product Advertising API
August 24, 2009 @ 10:52:04

Sameer Borate recently posted this new look at hooking your PHP application into the Amazon Product Advertising API to use the updated key system Amazon has put in place.

In this post we will see how to access the Amazon Product Advertising API from PHP. Amazon has recently changed (from 15th Aug '09) the authentication mechanism for accessing their API which must now be signed with your Amazon keys. Unsigned requests will be rejected by Amazon. Note that the code uses the hash_hmac() hash function which is only available for PHP versions 5.1.2 and above, so the code will not work for versions below that.

The full code, including an example if it in action - connecting to the API and searching for the DVD of "X-Men Origins". The full code of his class is included, perfect for cut and pasting.

On the PaymentBlogger.com site today, there's a quick tutorial on getting the OpenAds advertising management system installed and working.

With Nicks great post on selling links I thought I would follow up with a quick how to setup OpenAds and how to integrate it into your Wordpress or Drupal sites.

According to this new post on the PHPClasses.org blog today, they're launching some premium services for the users of the site:

It is with great pleasure that I announce that the PHP Classes site finally launched the premium services for PHP developers that use the site. [...] The premium subscriptions are the alternative that I found to make this site provide a pleasant user experience and hopefully provide useful features that can help making the life of PHP developers better.

He goes into detail on what all is involved in the premium subscriptions including:

  • No advertising
  • Own site search
  • Recorded searches
  • Notable packages
  • PHP Specialist forums

There's also several other services that are listed as "coming soon" to further enhance the site - customizable site design templates, new class wish lists, personalized bookmarks, etc. The cost for all of the premium services comes to $5 USD/month (with $15 USD due at a time because of restrictions on the payment gateway).

Another pair of interesting notes about the future of the site are mentions of revenue sharing for best contributors and the opportunity for free subscriptions.

You can get complete information about these premium services from its page on the PHPClasses.org website.

Builder.com:
Match users to their geo-location with PHP and PEAR NetGeo
August 10, 2006 @ 07:37:29

Builder.com has a new tutorial posted today about the use of the PEAR Net_GeoIP package to help with the geo-location of the visitors to your website.

Ever wondered how sites like Google and Yahoo! always seem to know which country you're in, and automatically redirect you to the most appropriate country sub-site? Or how some Web sites display advertisements perfectly targeted to your city or region? Well, it isn't magic -- these sites are simply mapping your IP address to a geographical database to identify your location, and then using this information to send you precisely-targeted data.

They work through the steps to get it up and working - the installation, a few basic code examples to show how to use it, and a full example of how to target different areas with different kinds of ads (geographically-targeted advertising).

Chris Shiflett's Blog:
Zend Framework License
April 26, 2006 @ 15:46:59

Chris Shiflett has some good news for all of the Zend Framework fans out there - the license that it's under is now compatible with the GPL.

This means you can use the ZF for your own GPL-licensed PHP project. The big change is the removal of the advertising clause: 'Redistributions of any form whatsoever must retain the following acknowledgment: "This product includes the Zend Framework, freely available at http://www.zend.com/"'

Chris notes also that it's a welcome change over to this pre-existing license to reduce the number of licenses that companies would have to change/evaluate.

Building an advertising system with PHP (Part 3)
December 19, 2005 @ 07:14:19

PHPit.net has posted the third part in their "Building an advertising system with PHP" series today.

Welcome to part 3 of the "Building an advertising system with PHP" series. In the previous parts (part 1 and part 2) I have shown you how to build your own advertising system using PHP and JavaScript. We've also added two extra features to our ad system and in part 2 we built a page to manage the ads as well. If you haven't read either part yet, I highly recommend doing so before reading this part.

In this part, the final part of the series, I will show you how to first track all kinds of statistics on each ad, and after that display neat graphs using PHP/SWF Charts. Let's get started.

Now that the front even of the system is all set up, they help you create the backend - gathering data, analyzing the traffic, and creating the graphs to map out the results. It'll require 0 comments voice your opinion now!

Building an advertising system with PHP (Part 2)
December 05, 2005 @ 08:15:45

From PHPit.net today, there's Part Two of their "Building an advertising system with PHP" series.

Welcome to part 2 of the "Building an advertising system with PHP" series. In the previous part I have shown you how to set up our basic advertising system, and how the JavaScript works. If you haven't read that part yet, I highly suggest you do that before reading this part.

In this part we'll be making our advertising system slightly more advanced, and move from using files to a MySQL database. We'll also add a management page for our ads, and two new features (priority ads and different types of ads). Let's start with moving to a database.

Some of the new features they ad include weighted ads (priority) and different types of ads (such as a 468x60 banner and a 250x250 cube). They wrap it all up with a page that helps you manage the ads with the standard add/edit/delete functionality...

PHPit.net:
Building an advertising system with PHP (Part 1)
November 30, 2005 @ 07:26:17

On PHPit.net today, there's a new tutorial targeted at anyone out there looking to roll your own ad system for your site.

Most of us who run websites will most likely want to add advertising on our websites some time in the future. The easiest way to do this is to simply take the advertising code (be it HTML or JavaScript), and paste it directly into the code of our HTML. But what if we eventually get multiple advertisers for the same spot?

In that case you must use some sort of advertising management script. The best one around, phpAdsNew, is completely free and can be downloaded at http://www.phpadsnew.com, but this might be slightly overkill for most websites.

In this article, the first part of a new three part series, I will show you how to build your own advertising system. In this first part I will take you through the basics of dynamic JavaScript, and how to serve multiple advertisements in the same spot. Let's get started.

He starts with the Javascript side of things, showing how to use an included JS file to create dyanmic content (much like the Google Ads). From there, it's all a matter of PHP on the backend that pulls out the content you need and pushes it back out to the patiently waiting Javacript...
