You may have noticed that at the end of every post now, I have implemented a new advertising network. Way back in the day, I used to run 468×60 Google Adsense blocks in the footer. You’ll still see that in some of the older posts I have. Later on, I moved on to AuctionAds and I’ve been running the eBay affiliate ads at the footer for a month or two. Their performance there has been mediocre at best, so I’ve tried moving them to the header and the sidebar.
What do you do when you find an ad network isn’t performing? You find a new one of course!
I’ve been asking John Chow about the TTZ Media Network for quite a while now, and he’s been telling me that he has people working on it so that blogs that aren’t quite the same stature as John Chow dot Com can get in on that cash flow. Well, it seems that I’m a beta tester for the “new” ad network, along with Jeff Kee.
It’ll be interesting to see how those “tech deal” ads do on a site that doesn’t get a million-gazillion hits a day. It’s a little unfair to compare the income level of a blog like mine to the five-figure-each-month income of Chow. Yes, I’m a guinea pig, but at least it doesn’t involve any invasive procedures… at least I hope it doesn’t.
