Update from Jay Heavilon on the ARTS-NRF CSE initiative.

If your company currently advertises using CSEs — or if your company is thinking about starting -– the ARTS-NRF CSE standardization effort will help you. Here are four steps to support this initiative.

Standard data exchange formats designed to simplify online advertising were announced today in New York City at the annual convention of Shop.org, the online division of the National Retail Federation. These standard formats will allow advertisers to send detailed product-level information to search engines more efficiently.

There will be a press release going on the wires next week from NRF and ARTS on standardizing the formats used to send data to and receive data from the shopping comparison engines.
