I’ve been pretty impressed with www.payperpost.com over the last little while to help monetize this site and to increase site traffic. It seems that in the next few weeks they’ll be announcing a new feature to the site, and I’m hoping it will be something that I can use.
One feature that I would love to see, and they could be working on right now, is an affiliate linked widget that lists current open opportunities, and the amount each pays. If people visiting my site could see the potential money they could make, then they’d be more likely to click on it. If I came across a website that had a widget telling me that I could make $10 for writing a post on my blog about something, I’d probably click it. To increase the effectiveness they could target the types of opportunities they list to be in the same category as the page their viewing. Such a widget would be easy for them to do, and could help grow the community immensely.
They could also be working on a stumble upon type idea. If PayPerPost can help to increase the traffic to my site, then they will help improve the popularity of the sites owned by the people posting. If the community of sites as a whole increases it’s average pagerank, then advertisers will be more interested in advertising with them, they can raise their rates, and the bloggers will make more money because they can apply for higher paying posts, and the higher traffic could increase other income sources like Google ads.
Lastly, my third idea of something that they could be working on is a widget that shows how much I’ve made with the site. A real-time status of my total payouts. In much the same way that they list the top earners this personal badge would give people a perspective of how much money there is to make on PayPerPost.
PayPerPost is a neat system, I have high expectations for it in the future.
