Dropping Google AdSense to fight the summer’s slowdown

Posted by: Rea Maor In: Blog Updates - Friday, August 17th, 2007

Following John Chow’s idea, and suffering from the summer’s slow down myself, I’ve decided to conduct an experiment: leave Google Adsense for now and try my luck with a private sponsor.

So, for those of you looking to get a private sponsorship ad, you want to know…

What do I have to offer?

30 Days of site-wide 250X׳250 banner, on every single page and on every article in the Index Page, which shows 3 articles at a time.

This site currently has an estimate of 100 unique readers per day via RSS, and more than 40,000 unique visitors per month. I attract a young audience, between the age of 20 to 30 (not counting my grandma – she’s 107). My target audience is mostly the Internet geek culture, but not the far-out-there eggheads. They are the kind of people who can sling some code, but still get a date. In other words, I’m latching onto the New Wave Geek market.

The site itself has Page-Rank 2 on its main page and several others. It is expected to turn to Page-Rank 4 or 5 on the next upgrade. I’ve got 130 Technorati authorities, which I got by hard work and not viral linking scams; I also rank 135,000 on Alexa’s global ranking.

My average cross-site CTR is around 3% which would generate an estimate of 1000 clicks for an advertiser – not a bad little return!

“Great, I’ll take 10 of these – what should I do now?”

I’ll accept Family-Safe (non-adult) URLs only. Banners must be 250׳250 as stated above, and be a static image.

Payment should be sent to Paypal@AskReaMaor.com together with your site address and banner. Yes, it’s just that easy!
