Becoming "Bestest Blog of the Month" for August...

The title of "Bestest Blog of the Month" is now up for bids. Yes, that's right this title is an auctioned one. My rationale: anyway willing to spend money advertising their blog must have a pretty good blog! Don't worry, becoming "Bestest Blog of the Day" is still free for anyone who joins my link exchange program.

Last month's winner, at a bid of $16.50, has already had their link and description viewed by a total of 46,670 unique visitors with 1/3 of the month to go still. That'll be about $0.00024 per visitor by the time the month is over (that's only 1 cent per 50 visitors)!

So, if you're interesting in gaining some relatively cheap exposure for your blog, please view my eBay listing. The starting bid is only a penny!

How off topic that last comment was.

No man, don't auction it.

I mean I don't necessarily even consider this to be "The Bestest Blog of All-Time," but people already associate you with this title, so why toss it?

Not like I have a say so, but oh well.

I'm not "tossing it," just auctioning off some advertising space that goes in the top-right corner. "World Famous Recipes" was the blog for July.

Do we have to pay per click. Or do we just buy the spot, and it doesnt matter how many clicks.
Bobby Griffin said…
No, it's definitely not pay per click. It's a flat rate. You might get 0 clicks, you might get 60000 clicks. But likely, you'll get somewhere in between.
Morgen said…
wow. already up to $17.50 in 24 hours. Makes my first bid of 99 cents pale in comparison! It will be interesting to see where this month tops out!
Andrew said…
I'm not gonna bid cuase it doesn't make sense. You say ah, get alot clicks. Cool. Wow. Vistors. Though the chance of the traffic clicking through ( clicking on an add for say ) isn't very likley. For me, there has to be something more to the deal, then just a chance of getting some traffic.
Bobby Griffin said…
I have no clue how many people click on the "Bestest Blog of the Month" link each day. But I can say that my Google Adsense ads get about 40 clicks a day, and my AdBrite ads combined get about an additional 30. Also, my "Bestest Buys of the Week" sadly only get about 5.

So, you've got to figure "Bestest Blog of the Month" is doing pretty OK. But yes, you are paying for potential traffic, there are really no further incentives. But, as far as buying traffic specifically for a blog, this is probably one of the best places to do it. I mean, that's WHY people come here, to check out other blogs!

I got all excited about the idea of being the bestest for a whole month ... until I searched all over the page and still couldn't find July's winner anywhere. And I was purposely looking for it! It wasn't until I saw one of your comments that I noticed it as a little ad in the upper right hand corner. It would be a MUCH more valuable item if it were to appear for the whole month just above or just below the Bestest Blog of the Day spot, in an entry of the same size as the daily winners. This would capture more attention from the visitors... in my humble opinion.
Bobby Griffin said…
Dr. Andrew:

You're definitely right that it would capture more attention there. So, would my Google Adsense, so would my AdBrite, etc. This site is cluttered enough as it is!!

Plus, if you look at advertising anaylsis, they say the corners are among the best place to put things. I guess you're not in the norm though!

How many unique visitors do you get per month, and is there a way that i can check this?

MBD, in the eBay ad there is a link to check my traffic statistics.
Morgen said…
Sold! For over $40! Too bad, not to me... alas, I can only hope for a Bestest Blog Of The Day sometime in August...
And as for the advertising spot, I totally agree, the top right hand corner is where 98% of people look. I pay premium ad rates to advertise my store on restaurant placemats' upper right hand corner!
Congrats on getting more than twice for August than you did for July!
Still lovin' your site! ~ Morgen

Have you looked at setting up a blog mall? That has possibilities. Put me down for the bookstore spot.
