Today’s the unofficial International Weblogger’s Day. So Happy Blogger’s Day to you all. Every blogger should have a day off today 😀 The theme for this year is solidarity but instead of blogging about solidarity, I shall just blog about….blogging instead. hehe.
The battle for Asian blog advertising.
With all this hype about blog ads and earning what Ben calls ‘moolah’ *kaching $$$$* from blogging, i’ve decided to post my take about it.
Nuffnang, Asia’s First Blog Advertising Community
Advertlets, Asia’s Better Blog Advertising Network
So with one claiming to be the first and the other to be better, which of their banners would you put up on your blog?
Both has got their shares on providing for their bloggers. For us poor East side bloggers(often neglected), Advertlets chose some privilege bloggers for the Digi Fu-yoh Streetblast. Nuffnang on the other hand has held the screening of Pirates of the Carribean 3 in KL and there’s another blogger’s meeting at Penang for a 100 Nuffnangers.
Community event wise, Nuffnang wins.
But the whole point of putting up these banners is to earn cash isn’t it?
Some say “I put both, but so far I’ve only earned from Advertlets” or vice versa.
My take is, no matter what/whose ads you put up, it doesn’t make much difference.
What matters is YOUR BLOGDERS.
If you’ve got lots of readers AND they’re actually KIND enough to click on your ads, good for you. But if you don’t, no matter what ad you put up, cash won’t come rolling in and you won’t see the big fat cheque.
Not the CPC(cost per click) or the click through rates…
So many of you asked me why I haven’t put up any of the banners. I’ve signed up a long time ago to see how it both works but don’t intend to campaign the ads. Besides, WordPress doesn’t allow advertisements. However, if I do get my own domain and host, I just might.
So at the end of the day, which will you go for?
Or are you kiasu and you’ll put all 3?
