Some news from Adversal


Today I got an email from my favorite pop up advertising network, Adversal saying this :

Hello Nick,In an effort to increase the efficiency of our network for both our

advertisers and publishers, we have decided to move away from the

US/non-US structure and instead expand our scale to five

countries/regions as apposed to just two.  In doing so, we are also

moving away from a flat rate model to an individual and customizable scale.

The new custom pay rates assigned to your account are based on the contents of your website(s) as well as the performance, volume, and country origin of your traffic.  To view your new rates, login to your account and click the 'Rates' link on the right hand side of the page. These rates will be effective today.  There are also some new Q&A's that you may be interested in looking at on the FAQ regarding the custom scales.
If you should have any questions, just let me know.

The first thing I noticed is that Adversal has a new Publisher page, which now displays the pageviews from different countries/regions, and the ammount of money earned for them by day. Of course the US traffic is the best, but I think with this adjustment on the program, the rates for the non – us traffic will become better.

Public relations and the web business


I just found a cool blog post from Daniel Fischer regarding the public relations and the web site marketing.

What Daniel very correctly sais is that you have to – at least try – to contact with other webmasters of your niche and ask them for links or help regarding your site.

This thing is not working so well – I mean that you wont get so many links this way – but even the small number of links that you’ll get can help with traffic and SEO, plus those people may stay in touch with you or your site.

Daniel points google to help you find sites of your niche, but I’ll also point to stumbleupon which has a tag browsing feauture. This way you can enter the tag that best describes your site, and find top rated sites in your niche.

The results are very good, as this way you can both socialize your business and get some inbound links to your site.
