Sell advertising using BuySellAds Advertising Marketplace

Posted by on 26th May 2008 | 10 comments

Buy Sell AdsI’ve came across a lot of blogs using the advertising marketplace BuySellAds. Although you can make more money by selling ads on your blog directly, I have been looking for a good marketplace to sell ads on BloggingTips. Not only will this save me time, it will expose the site to a wider advertising audience. BuySellAds do take a cut of 25% of publishers but if you sell more ads from using them then this isn’t something you need to be worried about.

So what’s so good about BuySellAds?

BuySellAds is not doing anything that hasn’t done before. Advertising marketplaces have been around for years however in my opinion BuySellAds has got everything right. The marketplace is very easy to browse and website ad pages have information on the sites Alexa traffic, Compete score, Google PageRank, Technorati links, Yahoo inbound links and number of del.icio.us bookmarks.

Here’s an example of an ad page (this is the ad page for CSS Mania) :

BuySellAds Ad Preview

You can set the number of ads which will be displayed in an ad zone and you can also sell more ads than are being displayed and simply put the ads in rotation. All ads are sold on a monthly basis and you can decide yourself whether banner ads use the nofollow tag.

BuySellAds is still in a beta stage at the moment however the standard of websites seems to be very high so don’t be alarmed if your blog isn’t accepted (sites are reviewed individually).

I’m going to use them at BloggingTips for a while to see what sort of response I get. If you are looking to sell some banner ads on your blog, I recommend checking them out :)

    To make money online is a large percentage of today’s population goal in the recession that is upon us. Small business owners and most major companies are looking to make money online too. With webhosting ranging from 6.95 to 20 dollars per month start up cost and monthly fees are far less than running a brick and mortar business.

    hey kevin, thanks for the review! yep, we're still in beta, but definitely don't be alarmed like Kevin said. We're working hard to get out of beta soon, but want to get some new features in first – everything works as you can see from the current publishers who are making some good money.

    I feel tired with adsense. i hope it will become solutions for some of my blog. thanks for this review.

    Greg – Did you even read my post?

    Todd – No problem though it wasn't really a review. Reviews here are usually a bit longer and more in depth, I was just impressed with the system and wanted to let readers know about it :)

    caTode – Adsense can make you money but there are a lot of alternatives out there and many of them are more suitable for blogs.

    Nice site. I will definately check them out in the next couple of months when my blog is fully launched.

    I just hope everything about buysellads.com is not based on pagerank. TLA only accepted one of my sites once it got a PR 4, but later it dropped to 0 during Google's famous webmaster slap late last year. So most TLA advertisers also backed out…though I had a better experience with linkworth.

    Hi Kaplan,

    Nope, nothing is based on Page Rank. It's just one of the stats we show on the site to help advertisers gauge the quality of a site. We show PR, alexa rank, compete rank, technorati rank, yahoo in bound links, estimated impressions (based on real stats), and will be adding any other relevant metrics for advertisers in the future (like click-through rate).

    BSA is totally different than TLA.

    From the looks of it, it is just the same with Adtoll.

    Their approval criteria is very strict. It seems they don't care about the PR or Traffic, they first look at the design. And if the design is good then they don't check the traffic and PR. This is mentioned in their terms on publisher sign up page. But whatsoever, once you get in to them it is a very good place for monetizing website. So yeah BSA is great.

    It is a good site to try ads on. A new competitor on the block is Adclays (www.adclays.com). Curently in beta but already serving some publishers.
