The last $1.00 ScratchBack link for this blog has been taken.
I really like the ScratchBack ad system.
They have added some new designs to the widget too. I am still hoping that narrower designs will be coming out soon.
I have raised the price of the links to $2.00.
It will stay at $2.00 until the last $1.00 link is bumped off. Then it will go up to $3.00.
In the meantime, it is my job to bring traffic to see these links. Otherwise, there will be no reason for anyone to pay $2.00 to purchase one. Unless, of course, they are just purchasing the link as a tip. That is also greatly appreciated.
I would also suggest taking a look at the various links yourself and seeing how people are using them.
You can learn from what others are doing to further your own efforts. There are one or two sites that are very good blogs. I find the car wax ad an interesting idea, and don’t forget Jim Kurkral’s Flip camera ad.
The Firefox SEO link surprised me. I have been using the Firefox SEO extension for a while myself and it can be a useful addition to anyone running a blog or website or several blogs or websites.
So far, I have approved all the ScratchBack links that were requested/tipped for.
As long as they do not lead to anything that could be termed offensive I will most likely approve a link. If you have any concern about your link feel free to contact me first, that or $2.00 is not really a risk anyway. Since the ads are no-follow, there is no need for concern on my part about linking to spam.
The ScratchBack widget is a great alternative since Google started to crack down on paid links without no follow.
The catchy graphic help the links stand out. The marketplace also helps advertisers find your site to purchase a link. While there are some alternatives that will let you keep all the profit from an advertisement, without a marketplace, you may not find advertisers. While ScratchBack has not replaced the income I used to get here from TTLA, it is doing well and shows promise. I kind of wonder what it would do on John Chow’s blog.
If you haven’t given ScratchBack a try, what are you waiting for?
Most sites have things that take up space and are less profitable. It is a safe and easy way to monetise a site or blog.
