Help & Support
Be aware of the following points when managing your arcades:
1. Write your own endorsements.
Though it is possible to use our default merchant descriptions, your visitors and search engines will prefer it if your endorsements are personable and unique. If search engines find unique content, they may well include your arcade in it's index and therefore deliver more visitors to you. More visitors equals more potential sales.
2. Do not use merchant names in your arcade titles.
We do not allow the use of merchant names in URLs (web address). As the name you use for your arcades will also be for your URL, do not use merchant names or trademarks as your arcade names. We verify each change you make on your arcade, and arcades that don't meet our guidelines may be edited or disabled.
3. Do not criticise other merchants.
Myshoppingarcade is about promoting your favourite merchants. Please do this without comparison of services offered by other merchants.
4. When writing endorsements, do not refer to the commissions.
You are recommending merchants based on their quality and not how much commission you will receive when your visitors use them.
5. Tips for getting your arcades into the search engines.
You'll no doubt want to experiment with the theme and content of your arcades. Once you have an arcade you like with uniquely written content, there is a good chance it will be indexed by the search engines. If you make dramatic changes, particularly to the theme of the arcade, it may appear in a lower position with the search engine results or even de-indexed. Stick with a theme. Remember, if you want an arcade with a different theme, you will be granted more arcades as you earn commission. Links into your arcade will also maximise search engine ranking. So if you have a website, or know someone who does, add a link to the website - . See the promoting.
