Google Affiliate Network announced a more structured way to get links with offers, promotion codes, and discounts so you can easily automate and display the latest advertiser promotions.

"You now have the ability to search and filter by special offers, promotion codes, and discounts - including Link templates and Publisher-specific links. Read on to learn more about how you can now access structured promotion data," informs Google.

Now, when you search the interface, you can perform queries that weren't previously possible. This could be helpful if you have a website where you only want to promote coupons with a significant discount.

In addtion, Google has also updated the recommendation engine to help find more relevant promotional links "now, you'll see that links with special offers, promotion codes, or discounts are more visible," Google added.

Also, the structured link data is now available through the Google Affiliate Network API, "so you can programmatically access and display offers, promotion codes, and discounts to your website in real time."

Finally, you can now also get links with special offers, promotion codes, and discounts via Link subscriptions. "To access structured link data through Link subscriptions, sign in to your publisher account and upgrade to Link subscriptions Version 2," Google said.
