Ever wanted to just sit back and show the top products in a category ? Say your site is about GPS devices and you want to show the top GPS gadgets out there.

Why would you want to do this ? This is the quickest and easiest way of showing the most popular products in your selected category. And the product selection is updated automatically for you as new popular products are released in that category.

Where should you put this ? While this recipe works with all formats, the most popular position for this recipe is usually the side column of your website. The most common size is the 180×150 format. For most of our publishers, this is a nice content-looking widget that they can place in their side column. You can even label that section with headings like “Hot Digital Cameras” or “Most Popular GPS Receivers”.  

How do you get the code for this ?

  • Login to your Chitika affiliate account, hit this link, change the category, grab the code and paste the code into your website template. That’s it !
  • If you are a code hacker, simply remove the line that contains the word “ch_query” and set your category code (See list of codes) using a line like this: ch_default_category = “200001”;
