What is ProductWiki Connect?
ProductWiki Connect is an embeddable widget that brings the Social Web to eCommerce websites increasing customer engagement, loyalty and confidence for higher sales.
How does it work?
What do I get?
ProductWiki contains several content modules that can be toggled on or off depending on your needs.
ProductWiki's unique and well defined product information architecture allows us to pull content from the broader social web and bring it to your site. Our technology allows us to pull in useful information from any outside social service including Twitter, YouTube, and Flickr.
Twitter - see what the world is saying about the product in real-time. Twitter is the number one source for real-time information, providing relevant and real opinions from around the world.

What are the supported platforms?
ProductWiki Connect is flexible enough to run on any platform.
How do you match products?
Products are matched through UPC, MPN, or ASIN values. This allows you to display the ProductWiki Connect information without any extra information or maintenance on your end.
What other retailers are using this service?
The following are a sample of sites currently using the ProductWiki Connect service:
Is this a Data Feed Service?
No. ProductWiki Connect is not a service to get your product data into the ProductWiki database. The ProductWiki Connect service is an enhancement to the retailer's website providing your customers with an interactive embedded ProductWiki report that increases trust and buying confidence. If you would like to have your store listed in the ProductWiki "Where to Buy" section then please direct any inquiries towards PriceGrabber.
Does it affect my SEO?
Due to our iFrame solution you will not be penalized for duplicate content. In fact we've found that the higher quality landing page will result in decreased bounce rates and therefore higher positions and lower SEM spend.
Does it affect performance?
The iFrame solution means no extra load is put on your servers, and doesn't slow your page down. Also, if you are running a tabbed solution you can make it so the iFrame doesn't load until the tab is clicked.
What's the installation process?
Please refer to the installation guide for more information.
I don't want to lose traffic to your site, where my competitors are listed
Not really a question, but this is a valid concern. The whole point of this service is to keep customers on your site. In real world experience the number of visitors leaving the site is minuscule (one or two a week) and the benefits to conversion rates far outweigh any small loss in traffic.
What's the difference between the Widget and API?
The widget is a ready-built solution that integrates with your retail site very easily, and offers interactive ProductWiki features such as product tagging and ProCon reviews. The API is a programmatic interface to the ProductWiki data that is used for mashups or other alternative services.
