What about BlogHer
, you ask? Yes, they are everywhere. I recently succumbed to these after taking ALL ads off of Kerflop.com for a brief period. Why BlogHerAds
? Because they pay per EYEBALLS. Which is rad. What that means is, instead of slapping the code up and praying for someone to take a sudden interest in bean-filled silk eye pillows and click on the ad, you can slap that code up and just do your thing. When someone comes to your website and views the ad, you get a percentage of whatever the advertiser paid to run the ad.
BlogHerAds was closed to the public during their beta phase, but now all of us blogging lowlifes can sign up, regardless of our readership sizes.
I have only just received my first check from BlogHer Ads, and for half of the month of October (I started running them half way through the month), I made about $250. So for a full, normal month, I'm anticipating $400 to $500. We'll see.
When considering ads for your website or blog, there are a few pitfalls to avoid. We'll get into those next, but for now, let me just warn you: Beware the ads that offer you crappy pay.
