Our CEO / Co-Founder Jesse Lakes recently sat down with ContractIQ founder Ashwin Ramasamy to share his expertise on app monetization best practices within the Apple’s affiliate program.
Topics discussed include the basics of affiliation, monetization across multiple affiliate programs, how the programs impact a user’s experience, using the program to gain insight into user behavior, and managing multiple programs across several countries simultaneously.
ContractIQ has made a name for themselves by showcasing and writing about some of the most interesting mobile development companies around. We’re flattered to have caught their eye and had a great time working with them. Thanks to Ashwin and the crew at Contract IQ for a great interview!
We recently had the opportunity to engage Nick Daws in a conversation about our Amazon support following a review of GeoRiot published on his blog last month. He had a number of insightful comments, and a few product-related questions, which we decided to put together in a blog post to share with the rest of you. So without further ado, here are a few things you may have always wondered about GeoRiot, but never thought to ask. Read More

Ever wondered what those are for? Many people do (or don’t) and inadvertently strip off the important ones which can lead to an unfortunate user experience (like trying to buy a game in the iTunes app and getting an error). For those using the GeoRiot global linking and affiliation service this is never a concern as it’s handled by us, but for those taking on the battle alone, or who are just curious, we put together this little cheat sheet for you.
To help kick things off for this 2013 Holiday Shopping Season, we’ve added two small but oh-so-useful features to your Linking Console.
Now, save time when creating Amazon or iTunes georiot.co links by creating up to 10 links at once. Creating a Holiday Gift Guide for your readers? What about that Top Albums of 2013 list you’re putting together for your blog? Simply paste the Amazon or iTunes product URLs of the items you’re promoting and click ‘ globalize’. It’s as simple as that! While you’re at it, we’ve made it easier than ever to create groups to organize and keep track of your links. To take advantage of this new feature, paste the product URL for the link/s your creating and from the ‘Add To Group’ dropdown menu select “New Group…” at the bottom of the list. Read More
Two billion. It’s the number of planets estimated by scientists to be suitable to sustain life. It’s the size of our global population at the turn of the 20th century. The total number of Beatles albums sold in the United States. And now… the number of clicks served by yours truly.
In our on-going effort to refine and perfect GeoRiot by regularly adding new features and functionalities, we’re excited to tell you about our latest update: georiot.co “vanity” links!
Now when you create your georiot.co short links, in addition to being able to add a tracking tag or group your link, you can customize the URL by choosing any name you like for your new link!
We’ve re-engineered our Links page from the ground up to give you better, more organized access to your existing GeoRiot short links, and an updated tool for future links!
To get started, log into your dashboard and head to the all-new Linking Console– your destination for creating, organizing and managing all of your GeoRiot affiliate campaigns. On the left is the new Short Link Creator. Here, you can simply copy / paste an iTunes or Amazon product URL to create a georiot.co link, or, explore additional functionalities such as adding a tracking tag or grouping your link with your existing links for easier organization down the road. (If you prefer to build your links manually, you can still do so using any of our standard link formats and / or iTunes linking tools – located to the right of the link creator field.)

It’s October 1st! Say hello to Q4, changing seasons, and PHG.
As of today, iTunes has completely replaced the DGM and LinkShare affiliate networks with the PHG affiliate platform. To coincide with this, all LinkShare and DGM affiliate parameters have also been disabled inside the GeoRiot system (because, as of today, they are unfortunately worthless). Read More
