The Adsmarket Blog is now in its 4th month. Since our launch in April of 2009 we’ve seen our traffic increase each month, readers spending more and more time reading, and a genuine enthusiasm for our efforts! Firstly, thanks are due to our excellent contributors and the affiliate marketing and online marketing insight they provide. And also, thanks to the general energy of Adsmarket, a company with ideas up the wazoo and, needless to say, outside the proverbial box.
I’d like to announce the addition of what I think it a totally fantastic feature for our readers. For most of us online monkeys we have a repeating 5-minute online browsing cycle that we call our ‘break from work’:
- Check for new email
- Update status on facebook
- Check out what’s up on twitter
- Click links from either FB or twitter to read a blog or news article or two.
- Back to work…
So, we’ve recently installed the Wibiya toolbar, which displays on every page of the blog, doesn’t require installation and was brilliantly designed to keep things convenient. What the Wibiya toolbar allows you to do is complete most of this obsessive cycle without leaving our blog! Yay! You can update your facebook or twitter status right from here, share one of our informative articles (like Maor’s post for marketers: Making a Pool out of a Puddle, which is the most popular article read on our blog, or How Green is Adsmarket? , if you are feeling particulary eco-communicative) on StumbleUpon, Mixx, or Digg, and even search Google. It’s very convenient and my favorite, won’t open up a bunch of ugly browser windows like a lot of bookmarking clients do.
So as not to confuse you, we’ve kept some of the original functionality of the blog like our RSS in the upper right, but you are welcome to use them both. We may remove the old ones if the toolbar proves a success so we can replace them with other useful widgets instead, but we’ll let you know.
Please let us know what you think!
