SponsoredReviews.com is going to start rating their pool of bloggers. As a paid post blogger for several companies, I must say that I welcome this step as it will spur me to put in a good effort to produce blog posts that I can be proud of.
Take heed of this:
In an effort to continually deliver quality reviews to our advertisers we will be implementing a new rating system to allow advertisers to give feedback on completed reviews.
This system will allow advertisers to mark their favorite bloggers as well as give feedback on reviews they dislike.
Though the tensions of being watched closely by advertisers are not nice feelings, I support this move because it will weed out crappy blogs made for paid posts.
Now here are some of the reasons why advertisers hate your blog. I am copying them from SponsoredReviews.
Here are some of the reasons advertisers may give for disliking a review:
* Poor Grammar or Spelling
* Did Not follow Requirements (Word Count, links, etc..)
* Showing a Price Higher on Site then what was Bid
* – This one will be used mostly by admins to mark bloggers who are showing lower prices on their blogs then what they are bidding in SponsoredReviews. Over-Priced based on Quality of post
* Duplicated Content
* Made Non-Factual Statements
I wish to point out one very big blunder a lot of bloggers made. I have seen people placing different prices for different paid post companies. For example, if my PPP Direct button says USD50, ReviewMe will show USD100 (because we only get 50%)Â and I think Â Â the maximum we should bid on SponsoredReviews is USD50 +35% .Â I had posted a few times that we bloggers ought to have that integrity to quote about the same price for all companies and not to over chargeÂ advertisers.
The other thing I notice is how bloggers themselves under pricingÂ their own blogs. I have seen PR5/10 blogs charging USD20 for a paid post. This is grossly under-priced! I would rather wait for that elusive USD100 opps to come along than to stuff my blog with five paid posts. Anyway, my PR5/10 blog is priced at USD128.
Remember, your blog is the golden goose. Just don’t stuff too much (paid posts) or it will die a premature death.
