i just read your new comment on the Adgitize blog "Decision Made!".
I'm happy that you mentioned my nickname "Cornyman" and that you like my "Recommendations on how to use Adgitize the correct way".
It's a pleasure to know that you read carefully the blog posts in Adgitize and it seems you also read my Adgitize posts in this case.
My name was mentioned once in an Adgitize blog post "Adgitize gaining market share in Blog advertising". There Ken Brown took my quote about his fantastic and fast growing ad network as a reason for his new blog post.
I added once a link to my blog in the forum, so that the Adgitize members could take part in the survey about "Will you renew your ad?". This poll is now located in the sidebar for easier access!
Another time i commented on the blog post of the "Open Question about the Advertiser Only" and put a link to my blog as i wrote an analysis about this topic. Nothing wrong with it as it's related to his topic and could enhance the discussion.
Now the big question will be - does your comment hurt my traffic in the next few days or do you "accidentally" promote my blog with this comment?
Everything that i did with my Adgitize posts is for the public, most of my readers/visitors are already Adgitize members.
NO, i don't steal a lot of referrals from anyone with my posts. There are hundreds of blog posts out in the blogosphere which published their Adgitize payment proofs and referral link each month. It's a big "fight" for referrals if you mean this (with stealing) and the blogger who can promote it in the best way may be the winner of some referrals (which is another idea for a new blog post in the coming days!). Only that my referrals are more likely to be publisher and not advertiser
Perhaps it's about the frequency that i post at the moment about Adgitize (several times a month in the last few weeks), that makes you so worried?
Yes, this can influence the decision of some readers/visitors who are NOT yet members of Adgitize.
But as you can see, i talk about the actual side effects of the Adgitize ad price hike, not a topic that non-members want to read if they shall decide to sign-up or not. I write honestly about what happen to members and encourage them to stay or become advertiser as this will be again a great opportunity in December.
If i would chase just for referrals, i could use a language that is more persuasive and just report that i get since 10th of November 20% more traffic (ad clicks) from Adgitize than in the first week of my advertisement.
Sounds good, too! But would be just half of the truth as the earnings didn't improve yet in the way it was predicted!
Members who doesn't want to loose money, would loose money in this case and just because i would get 9$ for their first ad and give 50% back to them (if they knock on my blog with a comment), doesn't mean i have to pressure them with wrong facts to buy an advertisement!
I would like to get with my readers in a dialogue or discussion but therefore the reader has to make a comment on my blog. In this case i could have responded to your questions or suggestions.
Somehow it sounds for me that you have other "correct ways" how to effectively play the Adgitize-Game and in case you want to share them here with us, i would be happy to discuss them further with you and my other readers!
I just showed my experience how i achieved 20$ each month (excluding referral earnings!) with Adgitize if you are a very active publisher with several blogs (which won't be achievable for me in this month as i'm not able to click for the next days).
I started this blog around 1 year ago, with the intention to help other visitors finding information about interesting programs, investments and ad networks and to keep them away from Scams!
When you look at my first posts, it's also a guide about myLot - a money-making discussion/forum program- and how to increase (double or triple) your earnings with some little steps each day.
The same is valid for all other guides which i wrote and will write in the coming days, weeks and months.
