Monetize your Blogrolls

Posted by Agent Deepak | Monday, June 09, 2008 | Comments

The world is coming with new innovations and idea each and every day. There have been new innovations in the Blog sphere as well. Now there is a new innovative idea of monetizing you blog.

Now you can monetize your Blogroll. Yes, the Blogroll which used to be used for link exchange with fellow Bloggers. Now you can earn money from your Blogroll. I know it does not look like a new idea. Many Blogger used to sell links in their side columns. But that was not Blogroll in any way. They put the links in Sponsor column which I feel is not right. By the way, the innovative concept I wanted to discuss is automation of selling links in your Blogroll. For this there is a new service on the internet. This service is called “BlogRolled”.

This is a relatively new concept and not well known but it has lots of potentials. You might have seen a similar service by Scratch Back, where you have to install a widget and sell links. You could sell links directly. I do not like this service as it is not as good as BlogRolled. Before I tell you why this service is good just have a look at how it works.

As an advertiser, it's an easy process. We have an inventory of publishing sites available to you, which you can search, sort through, and find publishers related to your product or service. Once you have found a listing you like, enter the details for your site and then checkout. Within a few business days of making the purchase, the selected publisher will place your ad live on their site.”

As a publisher, it's just as easy. Once an advertiser makes a purchase from your listing, you will be notified of the sale. Once you've received the notification, you will be asked to place the ad on your site into your Blogroll. That's it!”

Now you might be thinking Why BlogRolled?

Well, having direct link ads in prime locations on a Blogger’s main pages will get the attention of visitors and naturally increase the link popularity of your site. Now here is my point it is good. As the links are same as text ads they are search engine friendly, user friendly and with greater impact on visitors. The links put through it will provide as a nice back link as opposed to putting some java script widgets. Will look as a part of the blog for blog publisher and serve as a traffic provider for the Advertiser. One other thing I like is that BlogRolled allows putting only 10 active Blogrolls per site. Publishers (Blogs) are accepted into the system based on a combination of link popularity, estimated readership (Alexa), and estimated RSS subscribers. Sp advertiser gets only good and well established blogs in the market place. Publishers also do not have to search for advertisers. If publishers’ blog is good then advertiser will seek them out.

I have nothing more to tell about it. I feel this is a good service. If you are Advertisers Sign-up here and if you are Publishers Sign-up here.
