I had been real busy adding the codes into my sidebar widget. It is not easy for me to decide the amount to charge for per post on all my blogs. In the end, these are the amounts I set;
1) PR 5/10 blog – USD100
2) PR 4/10 blog – USD40
3) PR 4/10 blog which I built with a lot of passion and dedication – USD60
4) PR 3/10 blog – USD30
5) PR 3/10 hosted on Blogger – USD20
I know my figure is sky high compared to others but then, I really love my blog and am proud of it. So, that’s the amount I feel I rightfully deserve. Of course, advertisers can negotiate for a lower price and I do accede to their requests when I see they have a nice site and are serious in their business. If they are merely buying links for their spammy sites, then, it is a no deal.
Ok, back to Andy Beard….folks, do go to Andy’s review on PayPerPostDirect and give him a Digg. Remember, the exposure will be good for us because if words get out to more people, advertisers will come to us.
Thanks to Andy for the great review! And I like what he said :
The amount possible with the normal [tag]PayPerPost[/tag] marketplace is effectively hypothetical because so far I haven’t managed to reach the higher ranking necessary for their “big green” reviews, typically PR6 or PR7 with an Alexa rating below 10,000.
I try to aim for a quality influential readership, thus my traffic does grow a little slower than many blogs, and I do tend to take a fairly controversial stance on some issues, so I might not get as many links as “populist” bloggers.
This is the kind of blogging direction that I hope to achieve. None of those who are out to push their affiliate links and bullshitting about how good an ad program is even when they haven’t earn a single cent. Andy is my hero!
