Using PSE with Search by Manufacturer / Brand
Search by Manufacturer / Brand is useful when you need to narrow down or limit your search result to show only a particular brand of products. For example, lets say you are creating a web site to promote certain athletic shoes and you are creating a web page specifically to promote Nike shoes. At DFF Nike is identified as DFF Merchant # 5708 ( DFF mernum = 5708 )
There are several ways to find categories and find out their DFF mfgnum # (mfgnum): Manufacturer # Finder
Examine the &mfgnum=5708 parameter from the PHP calling script above. Please note that you have to separate parameters with '&' ampersand sign. When using PHP scripts you have to prepend the prefix 'dff_' in front of every single parameter. Also, make sure to replace the after affid= with your DFF Affiliate ID.
Options and Parameters you can pass to PSE
There are many options / parameters you can specify when using the DFF PSE script. While none of the parameters are required except for affid
, you should at least specify one filtering parameters such as keyword or category, otherwise the default search result will be random and will not show anything useful.
