I woke up at 5am in the morning because I am all aunt-sy and ant-sy as my niece is getting married today. In fact, as I am writing this, she is having her make-up done. I was just about to rant on [tag]PayPerPost’s segmentation [/tag]when a few good opps came in. I snitched three within the last hour.
At first, I was a little apprehensive that being located out of USA may give me less chances of having a fair deal on PPP. Yeah, as a blogger from the other side of the world where we see the sun 12 hours ahead of PPP do have its little disadvantage. But then, I realised – Hey, PPP’s segmentation may give bloggers like me an added advantage.
Firstly, I have a few blogs registered with [tag]PPP[/tag] and all these blogs are several years old, with niche topic and are full of excellent posts which I wrote because I love to blog. Traffic is decent, page rank is good and I am not shy to say that my writing is good too! All of them are hosted and not free sites. So, I shall look forward to this segmentation thingie and hope for the best.
Moreover, if I am an advertiser, I would welcome this move because it will weed out some of those spammy blogs and bloggers whose English suxs to the max and have disjointed sentences all over. (we posties have been informed about this through the forum where advertisers and posties meet) This segmentation process will do justice for the good money the advertisers paid to get good posts.
Positive thoughts beget positive actions, eh? So, what do you think? Are we being sidelined or will we have more advantages if we have been dedicated posites. We shall see…

About time we have this segmentation thing anyway. All my blogs are on their own host. It would be good if the opps are catered for these.

See lah how it goes. Like LL, they hv difren rates for difren pr. That makes us want to work harder to put up better post. If i were to be an advertiser, i’d like it this way. So, it’s still a win-win thing. But not for many, i guess.

We can have full control if host our own and we can decide what type of ads to put in.
I use to host my website via some free hosting in year 1999-2002 range. Some policy changes with the company, I lost the site.
After that, smart liau , I go for own domain name pay for the hosting.
Do you know when you sign up with a hosting company, you need to make sure that their IP is not blacklisted ? If they are blacklisted, say bye bye to Search Engine and you will not be indexed !

Segmentation may be good for advertisers but sometimes they may inadvertently close off good quality writing that way just because the blogger is on another part of the world. It shouldn’t matter as far as the internet is concerned because its search engine reach which is more important. I prefer it if they rate the bloggers as what you once suggested I think. That way all bloggers would have to work harder to improve the quality of their reviews.
To add to Samm’s comment. The only thing about LL pricing the blogs differently is that I end up writing the reviews on the higher paying blogs instead because it seems like wasted effort to write the same thing and get paid 50% lower on another blog.
