ShoppingAds Still Making Money

shoppingads-auctionads.gifOnce AuctionAds moved to ShoppingAds I pretty much was done with their service. I had made enough to cash out so I wasn’t really trying to keep promoting it. These ads are good for some blogs and niches, but not seemingly for blogs like this.

Revisiting ShoppingAds

A few weeks/months went by. I figured I should check my account to see how everything was going. I knew I had some referrals, but not sure if they had kept using ShoppingAds.

Logging in I found out that I had about $100 in referral cash!

I figured to try to start running the ads on my other domains. If other people are obviously making money with them, I’m sure I could find a way too.
Shopping Ads Offering CPC

Before, AuctionAds/ShoppingAds would only offer Cost Per Action (CPA). You only got paid for someone clicking your ad, then bidding or winning the item. That has changed with the new Cost Per Click (CPC) program.

While running CPC it is basically like Google Adsense, just with products and pictures. So far I have found out that the CPC isn’t that bad. I don’t have enough data to give an estimated #, but I am working on it.

If you aren’t sure which ads to run in your niche you can never go wrong by selected the most popular. This is a handy feature that you can use to have the ads being the most popular phrases searched for.

Running ShoppingAds

I am looking for more ways to incorporate ShoppingAds into my websites. Here are a few reasons or tips on using ShoppingAds.

ShoppingAds referral program is decent enough to push and earn money on. You earn 5% of all revenue generated by your referral for 6 months.

ShoppingAds is great for niche sites. If you are blogging about products it’s a perfect match.

You can run ShoppingAds along with your Google Adsense. I will be experimenting again with running ShoppingAds with Google on this blog.

Run as many blocks as you want. There are no limits.

Try different things. ShoppingAds runs on the keywords you input. Constantly try different ones to find the best results.

Have you tried ShoppingAds for your blog?
