If you are not aware, [tag]PayPerPost[/tag] now allows location targeting. What this means is when an advertiser sets up an opportunity, they have the choice to select where they want their opps to appear. I welcome this move because it filter out opps that are not mean for certain location Â and hence, reduce my time in reading the fine prints.
This screenshot is taken from my dashboard as an advertiser of PayPerPost. PayPerPost has explained what area specifics is on their PPP’s community blog. And no, you cannot cheat the system by using a fake address. For example, if you live in Timbuktu, you cannot claim to be a US citizen. This is because you need to submit your tax number if you are a citizen of USA.
I can foresee less opps for us Asians but then, this is Â the advertisers’ choice. So, there is no point mulling over it. Just improve your blog and advertisers will still come to you through PPP Direct and other methods.
But I have been benched or banned!
I know a lot of posties are frustrated why they keep seeing the red letters ‘You are not allowed to see this opportunity because you are probably benched or banned.’ I subscribe to the PPP opps through RSS and I do see a lot of opportunities on them but not on the dashboard. Well, I had mentioned in the previous post about this. Don’t take it personally. It is an option that advertisers can choose. Note the little box at the bottom of the above screenshot? Advertisers can bench us from taking their opp for 30 days.
The above two moves may cause us to have less opps but then again, it will also open up more opportunities for more posties.
