3 Webmaster Tools You Don’t Use (But Should) – A post offering up some tools for affiliates, of which we were recommended. Quality Nonsense is a blog from a top affiliate who is into paid search and consulting – Richard Kershaw @QualityNonsense.

Commission Made Easy – A post by Ray Theakston after making his first sale through an ECU he put on his Discount Code site.  The content unit he added was ‘way below’ the fold, after all his usual discount code content, as a trial replacement for adsense.  Whilst he thought the design could be improved, the basic look evidently ‘did the job’.

Affiliate Stores – Has a good review of ECU showing some positives and negatives, written not long after our launch:

-ve – Only UK Merchant Networks presently supported (I expect that will change over time)
+ve – It is Free to use (your aff ids will be served 80% of the time and easycontentunit’s the other 20%) in a revenue share type arrangement. I expect paid for versions to come along in due course.
-ve – Not all merchants are immediately available at present
+ve – So far, I have found support to be fast, with a merchant added within 20 minutes of requesting it.
-ve – Presently served up as Javascript, so not very SEO Friendly … but there may be more friendly option coming soon.
+ve +ve +VE!! – Very, very customisable for different layouts. This tool ROCKS!!
