Amazon Launches Clickriver Ads

Posted By Darren Rowse 5th of November 2006 Pro Blogging News 0 Comments

BetaIt’s been interesting to see Amazon/A9 release the beta of a new Cost Per Click (CPC) advertising program to run ads on their pages. It’s called Clickriver.

I’m interested for a couple of reasons.

Firstly – I think it presents bloggers an interesting opportunity to promote their blogs. Increasing numbers of bloggers are engaging in CPC advertising with systems like AdSense (you’d be surprised how many are doing it). Imaging a blog on MP3 Players running ads on Amazon’s iPod pages for example!

Secondly – I’ll be interested to see if this program is extended and made available down the track to other publishers to run the ads on their sites. I can’t see anything about this on their site (or anywhere else) but I think it would be a natural progression.

  • Hi Darren,

    This seems to be good but it seems to be only for U.S.Is any other program available which is kind of global and similar to this other than adwords.


  • It’s too bad it’s only open for US publishers, it’s too bad YPN is only open for US publishers, it’s too bad Paypal doesn’t allow withdrawals to all countries…and it’d be really too bad if i turned this into a personal rant of mine.

    Let’s hope this one takes less than 24 months to be opened for the global public.


  • Too bad this is only in beta now. I would try this out. I like AdSense but I always like trying the competition.
