Payperpost issues

Previously I posted on here about trying out payperpost, getting paid for blogging, as you know I already started to use the service on my Viral blog and have been happy with it so far.

I do feel it is a service that should be geared to helping the smaller bloggers out in the blogosphere, most of them bloggers are stay at home parents and such.. its an extra to help with the bills etc.

I am as I have mentioned keen to try it out on this blog too, it all helps, yet there are issues that really bug me at the moment which have stopped me utilising it here so far, one is the fact on the payperpost dashboard it list my blogs as having a PR of 0... odd check out the PR (google page rank) on this blog and its a respectable 4... my other blog is a PR 1.

Why is it important?

Alot of the opps we can take have a min PR rank in order to take them... well I cant take what I should be able to take when the issues like that are there.

The higher PR the better the opps and rewards are.

So..when they sort that out I may well use the service on this blog.

Also the ranking system from the advertisers is a little unfair.
You can get a bad rep for something you know nothing of... how are you supposed to improve if you don't even know what was wrong?

It could be that the advertiser simply doesn't like the colour of your blog?!

That is ridiculous, the ONLY thing they should be rating is the CONTENT of the post, thats what they pay for.

So...sort these issue out, I may give it a go here.

If the issue's are not sorted out I think alot of small bloggers wil abandon it, they need to look elsewhere if they are relying on the income for bills etc.

Payperpost post approved now...

Great to get it sorted out at last and have all my post approved towards my efforts to make money online.
This has made me alot happier about continuing with the paid blogging service on the other blog.

They DO need to add to the FAQ though just to ensure it is obvious on the site you must have a prominent disclosure link...though I feel its crazy, just the FTC sticking their noses into everyone's business, even though who have no right sticking into, like mine, and it means blogs who use the service look worse for it.

Think of all the other advertising mediums out there and how few of them really disclose things...like radio.
Like all good things the USA government attempts to police things when there is no need to do so.
I don't even bloody live there!

Ah well at least I got the payperpost situation sorted out.
Would I recommend them to you?
Yes I would... why not.

If you are thinking of trying it, or are already trying it, I would love to hear how it has worked out for you.
If you would like to try it but have yet to check it out go ahead and see how it pans out for you with regards to your effort to make money online with them..

Payperpost update

No sooner than I posted the post below regarding my make money online activity with Payperpost I get an email from Payperpost support regarding the post rejections.

I am astonished...they admit this disclosure situation was on the press release which I never saw, yet also admit they have NOT added this to the FAQ on the site itself which I DID check out... so um... how the hell was I supposed to know?
Beats me!!

I had the disclosure link at the foot of the other blog, just as I have seen on OTHER blogs using payperpost, now I have added to it to EVERY post, regardless of whether they are sponsored or not.
They can't reject me for that reason now.

I asked for them to take another look and hopefully they will approve the post and I will STILL get payment...not delayed either.

It is a mistake on THEIR part as they admit they need to and will add the disclosure issue to the FAQ on the site.

Unbelievable how they can forget to add it really, they could NOT expect everyone to have seen their press release.

Hope to post here saying it HAS been resolved and the post approved then I carry on with the make money online plans with paid blogging.

Whatever happens...at least I will know which side of the fence I will get off. ;o)

Payperpost

As I mentioned in an earlier post I am seeing how I can make money online trying out the payperpost service on my viral blog having posted 4 post so far I am on the fence at the moment.

Two were rejected...and I am not happy about it as they said I should have had my disclosure policy in the post...or prominantly shown, yet there was NOTHING saying that in the post opportunity page regarding those opportunities posted about.

They took 5 odd days to take a look, I know it was holidays but that is NOT an excuse, it's a business they run so they should do it the best can and to me that means staying on the ball, for they only build up a backlog of blog post to catch up on, they had 5 days FREE advertising from me.

Not a good start to be honest.
I am happy to have the chance to try it out but I feel they should be approving or rejecting as quickly as possible.

The plus point on that is once it IS approved you get your payment 30 days from the posting date, not the approval date.
YET if they are rejected that means the advertisers get FREE ads for up to a week.

HOW is that fair?

It's NOT.

I planned to try it on this blog if it went well but in two minds whether I should or am not.
After you add a blog you must do ten post before you can add another...so IF I do want to do it here I will have to make at least 6 more post on the viral blog to be able to do so.

It all depeneds on the next 6 post I do..IF I do them that is.
I am awaiting to hear back from payperpost regarding the rejections, see how its sorted out.. then I will decide on what to do.

Till then... well I will keep an eye on the situation and see how things develop.
You can be sure I will be honest about them, I will tell you my readers of the crap as well the good, we can't make money online with crap, well we shouldn't want to! ;o)

Paid for blogging

We are all seeking ways to make money online, if we can we want our blogs to earn something... for a number of reasons.
It could be that we are soley blogging and we can't do it for nothing forever...no matter what the naysayers spout!

Who are these people who say bloggers shouuld NOT earn from it?
What the hell has it got to do with them anyway?

Nothing...

Well I have been waiting to try out the "payperpost" service and I have just started to use this on my other blog and its looking like it is worth while...though a little early to say for sure.

I could use it on here from the 28th of Dec...but need to have ten post done before adding another blog... so if you are thinking of using it, and you have more than one blog...choose the first blog carefully beforehand.

I will see how it goes on the other blog first before trying it here, but see nothing to stop me using it yet.
Its a good way of getting a little payment for our efforts...regardless of the naysayers.
They don't feed you... you do!

Looking forward to seeing how it pans out.
We all need to make money online if we are spending time blogging and writing.
