I like to present facts. I won’t bitch about how my own income is affected by PPP segmentation because people are not interested to know about individuals. Advertisers want to know about stats and figures.
Well, I read that PPP is coming up with even more glam in some yet-to-be-launched platform which I am not going to publicise because I want to see it working before I am convinced. Meantime, I wish to point out to advertisers what they are missing out by segmenting blogs according to continents.
1) You have paid your money but your opps are going to stay there with no takers. There are over 170 opps in the pool compared to the previous times when there were barely 30. This means, you pay but you don’t get your links working yet. No one in Uncle Sam land is going to take a five bucks opps. If they do, their blogs are mostly made for money blogs with no souls.
2) You missed out some of the best bloggers and blogs by this segmentation. Take a look at this Apogee Search results. It was a PPP’s opp sometime back. There are 2.2 million results and within the first page, my fellow Malaysian’s blog, tenthofmarch was there. This blog, Make$ Money$ is on the second page. In those 20s, I notice some of them are Indonesians blogs.
My point – Yeah, you can say our English sucks. But wake up, you are paying like five to ten bucks so don’t expect to hire copywriters standard. What matters are the links and how powerful our blogs are. Our blogs are much better because we are targeting to a larger audience. Hey, Asia is wayyyyyy bigger than the US of A, you know?
This is just one of the many examples I have presented that PPP’s continent segmentation is not working.
