Henry Copeland over at BlogAds writes a good post on Volvo buying Ad space on MSNSpaces pointing out that they would be getting better return on their exposure by sponsoring some big named bloggers than the random approach of putting their name on thousands of random blogs – some of which have questionable and inconsequential content. Henry writes:
‘To expand on Steve’s point, Volvo is, at best, paying to appear above MSNSpaces bloggers who are writing about random stuff, blogospheric noise. Spaces bloggers are newbies on the fringes of the blogosphere. MSN may well have promised Volvo 100 million page impressions a month, but these are impression seen by nobody — or more exactly “nobodies” — people who are viewed as influential only by their moms and ex-girlfriends.’
I’m with Henry on this one – whilst I’ve read a few quality MSN Spaces blogs – I wouldn’t want to associate my business with many of them. What do you think?
