I received an email notification from [tag]nuffnang[/tag] that we now have the option to choose the type of ads we prefer :
Starting from this coming Sunday (15th July 2007) , all blogs in the Nuffnang Community will receive ads, regardless of their traffic. Some ads will be based on Unique Visitor Count and some on Cost Per Click though priority is always given to Unique Visitor Count ads since they naturally pay more and don’t depend on clicks.
So if there are no Cost Per Unique Visitor ads running on your blog, you will have 3 options.
1) Show CPC ads – Where our network-wide CPC ads will rotate and show on your blog and you will still be paid per click.
2) Minimize Default Ad – This is an option where our default ad will minimize and shrink itself so it does not take up too much space on your blog.
3) Show Default Ad – And for bloggers that still want to display our default ads if there are no ads, you will still have this option.
You can select between these options upon logging into our system and clicking on the “Add Ads” tab.
Now, you may wonder – Which ad to choose?
My choice is to pick Unique Visitor Count for my high traffic blogs and Cost Per Click for those band 1 – 3.
Since nuffnang said their default ad will be minimized, I do not mind having it when I cannot sell any banner ads on my site. As for those with low traffic, I will stick to the CPC.
Any ads guru out there with better suggestions?
Kudos to nuffnang for listening to their publishers’ suggestions and offering these choices to us.
