If you take a look at the right hand side of the site, you’ll notice some new little ad blocks. This new advertising is done through Project Wonderful which allows advertisers to bid for ad space. Just like an eBay auction, you can put in how much you want to pay for ad space and, as long as you are the highest bid, it’s yours!
However, since we only just set up this ad space today, they don’t have any traffic stats set up for this website yet. While they start collecting traffic stats to use to sell our ad space, we wanted to give loyal readers a chance to get a piece of the action.
The current bid to advertise on our site is… $0! That’s right, free! You can try it out for a little while and see if the ads are worth it with no charge whatsoever until something bids at a price higher than you. Pretty cool, right?
If you want to sign up for one of these free ads, you can do so here.
Update: We are still playing around and working on getting the bugs out with this service so we apologize for any trouble this caused for those that signed up before. The free ads now get even more exposure as they appear above the fold (woohoo!) but they are also a little smaller so that we could extend this opportunity to more sites. To do this, we had to cancel the existing bids so you may need to set up your ad again (sorry!). Also, on the navbar you will notice a nice new, very large skyscraper sized ad. This one we are actually charging for so, while it’s not free, it is very cheap. You can bid on that space here.
Thank you very much for your support of this site!
