Do you advertise your blog?
Perhaps it’s a symptom of the massive increases in numbers of blogs out there competing for readers – or perhaps it’s a symptom of the increased focus on blogging with a commercial edge – or perhaps it’s a result of something else.
Whatever it is, it’s happens more and more and I’m interested to hear the experiences of those who are running ads in the hope of bring in traffic.
Here’s a few questions for you to answer (feel free to answer anonymously if you wish and to tackle one or all of them):
- Why do you advertise your blog?
- What ad programs do you use?
- What impact has it had?
- What tips would you give others wanting to do the same?
My own experience with advertising my blogs is reasonably limited.
I have experimented with using both AdWords and BlogAds – especially in the launch phase of new blogs – but have not had massive success with it to this point.
I’ll write a post in the coming days with a few tips that I’d advise bloggers wanting to advertise their blogs but would be interested to hear the experiences of those who’ve been doing it a little more seriously than I am.
