Getting Tipped by Scratchback
- 19 Comment
Mark wrote about Scratchback for us a while back, when it was starting to catch some steam. Since late November we’ve been displaying a top spots widget on our blog. Last night before going to sleep I received a nice email. It was my payment of 35.62$.
Scratchback vs Blogrush
It makes me curious when bloggers have a Blogrush widget and not a Scratchback widget. In weeks of having Blogrush I’ve seen very little traffic. With Scratchback I’ve actually received more traffic (from the scratchback directory listing) as well as earned 35$. Why not monetize a spot on your sidebar that isn’t generating any $?
Generate Traffic and “Tips”
A great and much needed feature was the creation of the scratchback directory. In the directory you can list your blog in up to 3 different categories. You can check out our listing in the directory. We listed our traffic and readership, hoping to entice tippers to spend their money here. This has already sent us several people who have purchased a Top Spot.
The directory has sent us about 50 visitors since we created our listing, a lot more traffic than I can say Blogrush ever sent us.
I want to thank our tippers, several have purchased a spot more than once. We appreciate the support and hope we can send you even more traffic!
Fun little fact, our scratchback widget has been viewed over 30,000 times!
