What is Monetized Mondays all about?
I'm surprised at the lack of interest in the monetized Mondays contest. Basically the whole point behind it is to raise awareness about the advertisements and streams of revenue bloggers have on their blogs. Have you ever checked your adsense or adbrite or text link account and see a few cents were made that day? It's alittle discouraging. You no doubt allow those links to be on your blog because you want to make some money. Most of us go from blog to blog and read your posts then move on to the next one, all the time ignoring the ads that are their, or your donate button, or your web store. Let's use adsense for a minute. The advertisers who sign up with adwords want their website clicked on. Of course they don't want click fraud or the blog owner sitting there clicking on the links, but if I as a reader comes to your blog and come across an ad for blogging or finance then I click on it as a courtesy to the blogger and the advertiser. No one wins if no one clicks on that ad. The advertiser's website sits traffic-less and the bloggers gets no money. The reason I started this contest was to raise awareness of this issue and the winners I place on the top of the blog in hopes that people will visit and pay attention to their advertisers.
