Some ad changes

by Tom Markiewicz on October 17, 2005

I recently removed some of the Google ads on the site and replaced them with Chitika eMiniMalls on individual blog post pages. The Google ads really didn’t do much for the site, but I’m impressed with the Chitika eMiniMalls. They allow a niche climbing blog to display some useful climbing products and hopefully make a little money to support the site in the process. I like the fact that the user is actually seeing climbing product images and not just more text. Let me know what you think.

    Hi Tom,

    I’ve also been looking for an alternative to Google AdSense Ads. I’d be interested to know how you get on.

    I’ve tried a couple of schemes including Tradedoubler and Clicksor. Td was rubbish, due to a lack of related advertisers. Clicksor seems much better looking at other site but I’ve yet to be approved, they run the “underlined keyword” style ads where the ad shows once you mouseover the keyword.
    Last of all, Amazon is slow and steady.

    I’ll post some results once the Chitika ads are up for a while. If you run them on a site in which you can target the products, I expect they’ll do well. If you have to run generic products, it may not do as well. Chitika also has an option to run contextual product ads like Google AdSense, but you can’t run them on the same page as Google or it violates their terms of service. So for now I’m using some targeted keywords for climbing related products and we’ll see how it goes.

    An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this onto a colleague who had been doing a little research on this. And he actually ordered me dinner because I found it for him… lol. So let me reword this…. Thank YOU for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending time to discuss this topic here on your site.

    What are the laws as to using company logos in blog posts?

  • penny stock egghead

    Is this possible? I am following two Blogspot accounts using my Twitter account. But when I look at my Twitter news feed, I never see updates from either of these Blogspots (and they have been updated). Is there a setting I need to change, or is this not even possible to do?.

    I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your site. It’s a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more pleasant for me to come here and visit more often. Did you hire out a designer to create your theme? Fantastic work!

    Next time I read a blog, Hopefully it doesn’t disappoint me just as much as this one. I mean, Yes, it was my choice to read, but I genuinely thought you would have something helpful to talk about. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something you could fix if you weren’t too busy searching for attention.

    I’m impressed, I need to say. Truly rarely can i encounter a weblog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me let you know, you could have hit the nail for the head. Your notion is outstanding; the issue is something that not enough persons are speaking intelligently about. I’m quite happy i stumbled across this during my seek out some thing with this.
