How to start: generate an engine

Follow the short, step-by-step tutorial for configuring and using the comparison engines:

  1. If you do not have a publisher account at Daisycon yet, then you first register as a publisher at Daisycon.
  2. After you have registered, your website requires validation by a Daisycon team member. Make sure that you have clearly indicated your intentions and targeting for your website, by answering the relevant questions during registration. If you already had a publisher account and a validated website, you pick up the tutorial here by logging in.

Tips and Tricks
  • All Daisycon engines automatically scale to the width of your website. The minimum width is 500 pixels. That offers more than enough space for the most common templates. If you generate an engine, it will always fit directly into your website. With every engines we have also added options that can help you integrate it even better in your website. Every engine has certain default values and filters the moment you generate it. This is set by Daisycon, with the idea that best results are shown first for these specific variables. Usually you can adjust these default values and filters yourself.
  • The engines are designed to be as neutral as possible. As a result, they blend into practically any user interface. You always have ability to adjust colors of certain elements, such as buttons, in order to fine-tune the appearance.
  • By default the comparators are not indexed by Google, there are tags in place that prevent indexing. The comparators can be often are found on numerous websites. By not indexing them we prevent you from getting duplicate (not unique) content on your website. However, this does not mean that you can’t properly rank a page with an engine on it. In order to be properly ranked in the search engines, it is advisable to place unique content above and below the comparator!

Ethics

At Daisycon we find it important that our comparison engines offer added value to your visitors. All prices are therefore compared objectively. If possible, we always try to add extra information to the comparison engines, so that your visitors can make an even better choice. Unfortunately it is almost impossible to compare an entire market, all vendors or suppliers of a certain service. However, we always ensure that a representative number of vendors are compared, so that your visitors can make a well-informed choice. In some cases we work together with third parties who provide us with data.

Each comparison engines contains a disclaimer explaining what is being compared, which parties are being compared and how the comparison is being made. It also always states that the website will receive a commission if a product or service is purchased (or otherwise succesfully ‘converts’).

Of course we try to work as meticulously as possible. We urge publishers to contact us if something appears incorrect in the comparison. We strictly supervise that the engines are only used for their intended purpose. Publishers are ofcourse obliged to comply with Daisycon’s general terms and conditions.
