Skimlinks offers a simplified affiliate marketing tool for publishers, and SkimWords, a product that turns product references into monetizable shopping links. The tool converts existing links into affiliate marketing links, and SkimWords recognizes unambiguous product references in editorial and user-generated content and turns these into unobtrusive shopping links that can earn the publisher money. Skimlinks initially launched with social decision-making tool SkimIt.com, and then the white-labelled version of this service Skim-in-a-box.
