DZone reaches 500,000 clicks monthly


It seems that the developer social network DZone is having success, and I think it deserve it, as it is one of the best services for developers and the only social network for them.

If you don’t know this site, then I can say that it is a site like digg, that has development related content (databases, php, python, .net, java, etc.) People can submit and vote for stories, and the top rated stories are displayed in the front page.

Text link ads introduces Feedvertising


Today text link ads announced their new monetization program called Feedvertising. Feedvertising is a program for those who want to make money from their RSS feeds, and as they say,

Bloggers can use our FREE Feedvertising technology to run text link ads in your RSS feed. Whether the ads come from us, your own in-house efforts, or your affiliate links… the choice is totally up to you!

The only bad thing at the moment is that this service is available only to webmasters that use wordpress 2.0+, but I guess it wont be so hard to implement it on a “home grown” RSS feed.

By the way if you are allredy using the feedvertising program, please share your thoughts.
