I recently removed BlogHer Ads from my blog because of their policy changes regarding hosting giveaways. The little extra cash BlogHer brought in was nice, but what I really liked was the extra traffic that came from them posting my blog headlines under their ads. Is there any other network out there that helps promote your blog posts in that way? What are the best advertising alternatives besides Google Ads?
I had to drop BlogHer Ads as well because of their policy change. I went with them originally because they were one of the few ad networks that limit how you hosted giveaways and reviews. I also liked them because they advertised my blog articles on several other blogs. But because of their recent change in policies, I had to let them go. Hosting giveaways is fun for me and my readers.
I love BlogHer ads and I would recommend them to anyone who want to place ads on their sites.
I am going to keep checking this post because I am very interested in other alternatives.
You can not have a review or a giveaway on the same page where your BlogHer ads are located. So if you are on a Blogspot or WordPress site, this makes you have to create a separate blog for your reviews and/or giveaways.
Six Apart (typepad) does advertising too.
I sell my ads directly, tried one of the other places first. I see the money upfront and am very happy doing it myself. Money has been decent too. Better than Blogher
I do direct-ads on my blog 125 x 125 ones..and also recently signed up for Redux after I got a promotion e-mail from them. Not sure how much I can make from it but am trying it out. You are allowed to choose different sized ads..so will see how it goes from there.
