Interest!ALERT SiteNews Developer Program lets you easily display free
news headlines and summaries and stocks on your web site pages. It is a

Branded and Partially Branded content.
Interest!ALERT offers both branded and partially branded content.
Branded content is displayed in your look and feel, powered from Interest!ALERT servers.
Partially branded content has headlines and summaries on your branded
pages that link out to popular magazines or web sites.
Whenever Interest!ALERT offers content that links
off your site we will clearly mark it and show you which parts display your
brand and which do not so you can decide what content to use.
Branding is a paid option.
Interest!ALERT has free headlines and summaries which can be embedded on your site's pages.
Interest!ALERT will not provide content to sites it deems inappropriate.
Branded Sites, Free Sites and the Affiliate program.
Interest!ALERT allows qualified sites
to participate in an Affiliate Program which pays a commission on the ads
that display on branded pages or on Free Interest!ALERT pages, subject to the terms and conditions of the
Affilate Program. We suggest you get
started with the Developer Program and hook up news immediately.

You can select from a number of page styles, set the number of columns to
display, decide whether to display summaries and dates and set the number of results per topic.
You can edit the content, selecting news topics from a large range or creating a Stock Index.
