Video search engine blinkx isn’t willing to cede this week to Google as the affiliate video king.
According to a press release from blinkx, affiliates can now earn revenue through blinkx’s AdHoc platform.
blinkx, the world’s largest video search engine, today announced unique technology to remunerate consumers who have embedded video clips into their blogs or webpages. Based on blinkx’s ground-breaking AdHoc platform, the new widget places unobtrusive, highly-relevant text advertisements against embedded video from popular sharing sites such as YouTube, Google Video and DailyMotion. blinkx will share 50 percent of the revenue generated from the ads with users, and payments will be facilitated through PayPal.
Launched in June 2007, blinkx AdHoc is the first contextual advertising platform for online video, designed to place highly relevant advertising against video content on the Web. Just as Google’s AdSense transformed advertising on the Text Web, blinkx’s AdHoc platform will revolutionize video advertising by matching compelling, customized, TV-style ads to audiences on the Video Web.
