Peter has been digging around the Feedster Top 500 list (a list of ‘top blogs’ that was going to be updated monthly but hasn’t changed since August) again and has an interesting statistic – 12.2% Of the List have RSS Advertising in their feeds. This is in contrast to the 65% of this same list that Peter previously found to have some sort of Advertising on their blogs.
I’m not convinced by RSS Ads to this point. I have them operating on a few of my blogs (including ProBlogger) but I find that in comparison to other forms of advertising they are pretty low on the conversion front.
I’m interested to hear how others find them though.
update: RSS talk must be in the air because no sooner had I published this that I found Nick’s post exploring the age old question of whether to post full or partial RSS feeds.
