Yep this is a sponsored review, though it was something I was intending to write about anyway, to announced that Sponsored Reviews is now live and available for both advertisers and bloggers.
PayPerPost’s Ted Murphy sent an email to Valleywag asking if they would be interested in doing paid posts. As would be expected the email was posted, and drew some criticism.
For many people, my Disclosure Policy Plugin was looked on as overkill. It seemed all they really wanted was an overall disclosure policy on their site, and to use a link in their sidebar.
Adding something to their feed content was generally looked on as a good idea, but all the additional functionality wasn’t really required.
In some way it is a shame as I believe PayPerPost could have steered metrics into something exceptional.
I will still most likely use it more, but only if I can host the open source application myself without providing it as a service. I wouldn’t want to use a service that is hosted by a “bunch of SEOs” i.e. potential competitors.
I have been offline for a few days, so time to play catchup.
Payperpost have launched a new site DisclosurePolicy.org, which features a very simple disclosure policy generator.
They provide you with a series of example phrases which you select, and eventually generate a final Disclosure Policy.
